Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation national recruiting director Paul Biancardi a question about basketball recruiting? Tweet it to @PaulBiancardi using the hashtag #AskCoachB.

Paul Biancardi: Love the fit here as the Spartans love to push the ball on the fastbreak and that's what Lourawls Nairn (Bel Aire, Kan./Sunrise Christian Academy) does best. The ability to create tempo is so important to each team, and Michigan State pushes to score. In the half-court Nairn, who is called by his teammates Tum-Tum, will settle down his team and execute. He is best at getting into the paint, scoring and distributing. Man-to-man defense is one of many things that coach Tom Izzo's teams are known for, and Tum-Tum can really get up on the basketball, pressure and turn the ball-handler with his quickness and speed. As far as the future, Michigan State hopes to land a couple more recruits in the early signing period. Kevon Looney, Devin Booker, James Blackmon Jr. and Cliff Alexander are all on their wish list.
