How about that for a start to November?

The Michigan State basketball 2019 class added another gem on Thursday morning, grabbing the commitment of 4-star forward Malik Hall.

Hall — who plays at Tum Tum Nairn’s alma mater Sunrise Christian — selected the Spartans over Purdue and Oregon. The 247Sports Composite rankings tab Hall as the No. 52-ranked player in the nation and the No. 12-ranked player at his position.

Hall made his official visit the weekend of Oct. 5 for MSU’s Midnight Madness. Oregon had the last official visit the following week, but it looks like good ol’ Tom Izzo left his impression.

That brings MSU up to two commits for the 2019 class, joining 4-star guard Rocket Watts. That leaves MSU with one more available scholarship to fill (two if Nick Ward goes to the NBA after this season) with highly sought Isaiah Stewart, Vernon Carey and Keion Brooks still uncommitted.
