According to Tremendous (link here), Diamond Stone—the number 2 basketball recruit (according to both ESPN and Scout) in the 2015 class—will be visiting Ann Arbor for the Michigan-Michigan State game this weekend. Although it's still very early in his recruitment, this is great way for Michigan to get a good early impression, and this could lead to another huge pick up for the MBB squad.
SI.com's Luke Winn has released his preseason Power Rankings. Michigan checks in at #9. Other Big 10 teams on the list are #1 Indiana, #6 OSU, #11 MSU, #16 Wisconsin, #26 Minnesota. No other Big 10 team is in his initial 32.
So any surprises on this list? I'm a little bit surprised OSU is ahead of us, I thought it was going to be a battle between Indiana and us for the conference crown this year.
Young is the #5 player in the country out of Rochester, MI. We weren't recruiting him hard, due to academic issues with the kid. But at least he didn't end up at Michigan State, which was my fear!
