MSU men's basketball lands dynamic transfer forward Frankie Fidler

Omaha transfer Frankie Fidler has committed to the Spartans after visiting MSU on April 11, as reported by on3. Izzo and his squad needed size on the wing following the departure of graduate forward Malik Hall, and Fidler fits that bill well. What the Spartans lacked in many areas last season — perimeter length, shooting and rebounding — Fidler is a major acquisition for Izzo and his staff.
