Although we're in the throes of 2016 football recruiting, 2017 basketball recruiting is starting to heat up. Michigan recently offered 2017 PF Kyle Young (Massilon, OH) and received an unofficial visit from Danilo Djuricic (somewhere in Ontario) per TodaysU.
Danilo is a pretty intriguing player. About 6'7"/6'8" with possibly some room to grow from the looks of it. He seems to have good defensive instincts and timing, and moves really well for his size. Form on his jumpshot looks nice and steps into it. Handle looks weak and has a bit of trouble adjusting when attacking the basket.
Beilein hasn't offered yet, but Washington St, Duquesne, and Niagra have. Other major programs watching him right now are Florida, Purdue, Illinois, and Stanford.

Huge road win against the Illini. I think we all need to give Mark Donnal a break. He played the best game of his career and added another great game against Penn St. unfortunately that game was not recorded and i have no way of getting it. If anyone has the Penn st game message me because i actually havent watched it. Next 3 games will be big for Michigan and especially Donnal. Enjoy GO BLUE!!
Yes, yes, yes. It's stupid to be talking bracketology in early January. You don't need to point that out. But I'm still looking forward to our match-up in St. Louis against seventh-seeded George Washington!
Michigan basketball is entering a possibly season-defining three-game stretch against 3 ranked teams (Iowa will be after they beat MSU and Purdue in consecutive games). We play at Purdue, vs. Maryland and at Iowa. It reminds me of January 2014 when Michigan played at Wisconsin, vs. Iowa and at MSU and went 3-0.
What are the expectations from everyone in these three games? I think a 1-2 record would be holding serve, and anything on top of that is gravy. Hopefully Caris will be healthy for Purdue and going forward!
WIthout Caris, this one is going to be a dog fight.
