While I typically do not like pre season hype stories, it is nice to read some positive news about Michigan for once. Forde has some very positive things to say about Caris. Here's hoping Caris and the Michigan team grow and become a force this season.
16. Caris LeVert, Michigan. Gifted athlete played a supporting role his first two years in John Beilein's system. Now he's ready for a star turn. LeVert was hardly destined for that role, though – he was a mid-major recruit ticketed for Ohio until John Groce left to go to Illinois. That led him to Michigan, where he's blossomed into arguably the best two-guard in the nation.
Title says it all. Sources saying that senior starting forward, Markus Kennedy, of SMU is ineligible.
Given our questions up front that should be a big help to us against Larry Brown's squad.
One of our 2015 basketball targets, we were in his final 5 schools.
I guess it's not really a surprise that he didn't select us, but it is kind of surprising that he picked USCe over Louisville (his presumed number 2).
EDIT: Looks like some people are having trouble... USCe is South Carolina, USCw would be Southern Cal.

If you have a few minutes, check out this story I came across on mlive about Beilein's journey from a trench digger to UM's basketball coach. Great read.
This kid is incredible.
I don't know how to embed from BTN, so here's the link.
Just in case anyone missed it, Austin Hatch was Scott Van Pelt's Star of the Night on SC tonight. I don't know how to embed from an ESPN website, can someone please embed. This might have been mentioned or posted on another thread, but I think recognition for this young man's heart and perseverance deserves its own. Go Austin and Go Blue!
