Michigan State head basketball coach Tom Izzo has landed a verbal commitment from one of his top targets in the 2022 recruiting class. Tre Holloman, a four-star point guard, announced his pledge to the Spartans on Saturday.
Holloman, out of Cretin-Derham Hall High School in Saint Paul, Minnesota, is listed as the No. 11 point guard in the country, and as the No. 1 player in the state of Minnesota, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. He is also ranked as the No. 70 prospect overall in the 2022 class.
In addition to Michigan State, Holloman had several scholarship offers. These programs include Baylor, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma State, Marquette and Dayton.
Michigan State previously lost its two commitments in the 2022 class when four-star center Enoch Boakye de-committed from the Spartans in February (and then reclassified to 2021 and joined Arizona State), and five-star forward Emoni Bates also de-committed in late April (and has also reclassified to the 2021 class). Holloman is now a strong first piece in Izzo’s rebuilt 2022 haul.
Holloman, listed at 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, is actually a two-sport athlete who also excels on the football field. He ranks as the No. 50 cornerback and the No. 2 player in the state of Minnesota, per the 247Sports Composite. He was actually offered a football scholarship by MSU head coach Mel Tucker. Whether or not he pursues football at MSU remains to be seen.
Holloman took an official visit to East Lansing on June 2 (he also met with Tucker on that visit) and then followed that up with an unofficial visit to Minnesota and official visits to Illinois and Marquette.
