Per a few outlets, '17 Canadian guard Shakwon Barrett will visit this weekend. He played at Findlay Prep behind a player Michigan heavily recruited in the past, Derryck Thornton (now at USC, formerly at Duke). He's 6'4" and it's not clear to me where he projects position-wise. Doesn't have a Rivals/Scout/247 profile that showed up in Google and I couldn't find any offers. Is visiting Tulane and Arkansas next week.
On the positive side, he has good length for a guard. Obviously has some room to bulk up and he might get a bit taller. Doesn't appear quick with the first step, but takes nice long strides in the open court. He has decent change of direction with the ball, and seems to maneuver his way through traffic pretty well despite being a bit loose with his dribble.
On the down side, he seems to play below the rim even at the high school level, which is disconcerting given his height advantage. Lack of explosion woould be a concern on both ends of the floor, especially for a B1G 2/3. Would likely have a tough time finishing at the hoop in college. I'd be skeptical that he could play the point. Jump shot looks okay, beginning of his release is a little low and form is a bit inconsistent.

Pick and roll guard.
Dylan has an article up:
Joe Lunardi released his bracketology for 2017-2018. Lo and behold, Michigan is in all-caps and the highest seeded of 7 Big Ten teams (only at a 4 seed). Obviously, it is way too early to think about bracketology for next year but interesting to see a talking head think of Michigan as a Big Ten favorite.
Way too low if you ask me. This is why the AP Poll should have a post-tournament poll as well
