Nick Ward is the lone recruit in the 2016 class to verbally commit to head coach Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans, but have offered seven, including forward Josh Jackson and guard Josh Langford.

Local product from University of Detroit Jesuit, Cassius Winston, who led the Cubs to the Class A semifinals at the Breslin Center this past season before falling to Detroit Western, has received regional and national interest from multiple schools, including MSU, Michigan and Ohio State.

However, he's expected to miss six-to-eight weeks of offseason activities after breaking his wrist during a Nike Elite Youth Basketball League game in Houston last week.

Reginald Winston, the father of Cassius, explained to the Detroit Free Press that it's not a critical injury and won't require surgery.

"You know how you go up for a lay-up, get hit and come down and try to catch yourself coming down? That's what happened. They didn't have to reset it. They put a cast on it just to support it. So it's not a severe break; he won't need surgery.''

Winston finished last season averaging 18 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for U-D Jesuit.
