2016 4 Star SF out of Columbus, OH Seth Towns just commited to Harvard to play under former Michigan coach Tommy Amaker.
Towns is the 117 composite player according to 247. At one point he was a top 60 player in his class according to ESPN, and although he's still a 4 star on ESPN, he's no longer in the top 100 list .
Towns had offers from Michigan and OSU, and was long thought to be a candidate to join the 2016 class for Michigan. There was a lot of buzz about him and Michigan early in his recruitment but that slowed down heavily in the past year or so. With the amount of big men Michigan has gotten recently, I'm sure that has something to do with it.
Still, this is a nice get for Harvard. There as one crystal ball on 247 predicting him to Harvard, with the majority predicting him to go to OSU.
I know there was some discussion the other day about the Cavs flashing the Block M up on the scoreboard to get fans to boo (they do). Well I wanted people here to know that not all people in attendance boo when they see the famed block M and I have proof.
Last Thursday as I was heading in I saw a familiar face from college and yelled out "Phil". Sure enough, the great Phil Hubbard was next to me and I had a chance to talk to him for a bit as we walked in and even got him to join me in a "GO BLUE" cheer which I'm sure stunned the people around us.
And FWIW my Cavs arent dead yet. I predicted Cavs in 7 before it started and I'm sticking with it. We're going to win tomorrow night and then again on Friday. And yes, you can
reback raback it!
Might as well start this. I've enjoyed the last few game threads. Seems to be several people on here following this great series.
Don't think it's a bold statement to say that the winner of this game likely takes the series.
Per Paul Biancardi at ESPN, the 5* PG may visit Michigan soon. He has not stated definitively whether he'll be in the 2015 or 2016 class, but many think he's leaning toward 2015. If he stays in the 2016 class, he'd be eligible to forego college and enter immediately due to his age and status as a foreign player.
Kentucky and Oregon appear to be the main contenders for his services, but Michigan has been in contact with him for a long time. Many scouts feel he his a top-10 player nationally and a future NBA lottery pick.
Great story in the Detroit News. The Jalen Rose Leadership Academy's first graduating class held its commencement today. This is the charter school that Jalen founded in the city back in 2011. The freshmen from that first class graduated today. According to the story, 100 percent of the grads are going to college, trade school or into the military.
He also got Isiah Thomas and Big Sean to show up for the ceremony.
So proud of Jalen and what he's done with this school. This is what a hero looks like. He's not changing the world, but he's changing the world of those kids.
