Findlay Prep (Nevada) senior center and Chicago native Gavin Schilling committed to Michigan State via Twitter on Wednesday.
Schilling, a 6-foot-9, 235-pound center, committed to the Spartans over UCLA, Minnesota and Villanova. Schilling is ranked 16th in Illinois and 21st at his position by ESPN.
The 17-year-old attended Loyola in Wilmette, Ill., as a freshman, lived in Germany as a sophomore, transferred to De La Salle in Chicago as a junior and played at Findlay Prep in Nevada as a senior. He helped Findlay Prep to a 34-0 record this season.
"His upside is unbelievable," Mac Irvin Fire coach Mike Irvin said Wednesday. "Really, he's supposed to be a junior in high school. He's younger than everyone in high school. Potentially, he's got a chance to be lottery pick one day. He loves the game. What I like about him is he rebounds. At that size, he rebounds, runs the court and is a physical guy."
Schilling is Michigan State's first Class of 2013 recruit.
