The Michigan State basketball program can cross the point guard position off their list of needs in the 2014 recruiting class. High school senior Lourawls Nairn of Sunrise Christian Academy in Wichita, Kansas, gave his verbal commitment via twitter to pledge to play as a Spartan.
Nairn, affectionately nicknamed “Tum Tum”, is a 5’10” 175 pound point guard who makes up for his small size with his lightning speed, toughness, and leadership qualities. He is listed as a four star recruit by ESPN, Rivals, 247Sports, and three stars by Scout.
Landing a recruit of this caliber gives head coach Tom Izzo and the rest of the program and nice sigh of relief. Looking to fill the void guard Keith Appling will leave after his senior season, Izzo and MSU heavily recruited top point guard Tyler Ulis, who went on to commit to Kentucky. Afterwards the program focused their attention on Nairn, who recalled his initial visit with coach Izzo as very natural.
"That's the crazy thing about it, I never felt like I didn't know him," Nairn told Scout.com. "As soon as we talked, it was like a match made in heaven. We are the exact same people. Everything he told me wasn't always about basketball. Even though it was late, it wasn't always basketball, basketball, basketball," he added. "The biggest thing he said to me was that he was going to make me a better person and that was big for me."
Nairn was courted by numerous other universities including but not limited to; Oklahoma, Minnesota, and Indiana. He will join a back court that is composed of great talent like Travis Trice and Denzel Valentine.
