Prep hoops star Emoni Bates commits to play for Michigan St

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan high school basketball standout Emoni Bates has committed to play at Michigan State for the class of 2022.

Bates announced his decision Monday on ESPN to play for the Spartans and coach Tom Izzo.

In April, the 6-foot-9 guard was named Gatorade's national player of the year, the first sophomore to win the award. He averaged 32 points this year, but missed his chance to help Ypsilanti Lincoln High School repeat as state champions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
