Verbal commitment Verbally committed to Michigan State

Christie was one of the hottest prospects in the country in 2019. After training with the USA Junior National Team for the previous year, he was named to the final U16 roster that May. A smooth shooting guard with a solid pedigree, Christie is a top-notch student to boot. He has grown a couple inches since bursting on the national radar — up to 6’6” now — and he might not be done. Interestingly, Christie’s father played basketball at UW-Superior, while his 6’5” mother played at Northwestern. His next challenge is filling out his growing frame and carrying his Rolling Meadows squad to the next level during his senior season. Boasting prestigious early offers from Virginia, Villanova, Stanford, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Florida, Northwestern, and Purdue, there was a sense that Christie is holding out for a Duke offer, a school he was admittedly a huge fan of. But Christie spurned Duke in a rare move for a Chicago area star. Tom Izzo and Michigan State out-worked the field and scored Christie’s commitment in July over Virginia, Villanova, Purdue, and Ohio State, shortly after Emoni Bates announced for the Spartans.
