Kid Man played right across the river from Detroit in Windsor. I'm not sure if he lied about his age to get out of Sudan, where he's from. Either way, please remove him from your prospective 2018 hoops roster.
Best quote on the whole situation:
After visiting Syracuse and Cal, Grant Mullins is visiting us on Wednesday. He shot 43.9 percent from 3 last season, so I'll take that.
This is from UMHoops via Sam Webb (original article is paywalled). Antetokounmpo is the younger brother of Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Bucks. He's 6'11" and apparently pretty raw.

A highlight showing his size and athleticism:
Michigan has an interesting scholarship situation with regard to '17-'18. Xavier Simpson will be the only true PG on the roster as of right now. And all of Michigan's small forward types will be seniors (I'm counting Ibi Watson as a two and DJ Wilson as a five).
Didn't see this posted, but I've seen a couple different stories recently about the clusterf*ck that is the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (aka the "Milwaukee Panthers") athletic department. This does not sound good for new hire/former UM asst LaVall Jordan.
- Here's a story from a couple days ago. Title: "Jordan in at Milwaukee, but was the process botched?"
5-sec summary: The very descriptive URL tells you.
- Then, the 16-year radio play-by-play guy quit yesterday, and went off on Instagram.
5-sec summary: UWM is full of idiots. His advice: "Win and get out quick, because long-term is fatal at UWM athletics."
I feel bad for the Jordan. It takes a lot of work for assistants to get their shot, and UWM (on the surface) would seem like a decent one, as they occasionally make the tourney. Looks like that is likely not the case.
