Summer highlights of 2020 center Mady Sissoko. One of the most athletic bigs I saw all summer. A lot of west coast offers plus Kansas, Texas Tech, Michigan State and NC State. https://t.co/MJhBLM5MTD pic.twitter.com/U68AeJ56kY

Sissoko is a nice boost to Tom Izzo’s class, which already includes 5’11” guard, Jalen Terry. The relentless big man plays for Wasatch Academy and played for Vegas Elite in the EYBL circuit over the summer. During the AAU run, Sissoko averaged 13.2 PPG, 9.1 RPG, and 1.9 BPG.
Izzo will continue to build strong recruiting classes, and the 2020 class appears to be taking the same route. The addition of the Spartans’ next cornerstone big man is a great place to be at before the season starts. Look for Sissoko to make a big-time day one impact.
