"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
T.J. Leaf released a final eight of Kentucky, Kansas, UCLA, Texas, Cal, San Diego State, Gonzaga, and Indiana.
Here are some red pandas if you're feeling bad about this:
Per multiple reports, 2016 5* forward TJ Leaf decommitted from Arizona last night. The 6'9" big man had significant interest in Michigan and was offered by Beilein. He also has family ties to Indiana and was strongly considering the Hoosiers before eventually picking the Wildcats.
Apparently Michigan made contact last night, but 247's Crystal Ball has seen a run on UCLA which makes sense given his apparent (if unstated) desire to stay on the West Coast.
Gonzaga/Washington, Texas/Texas A&M, UConn/Michigan, Syracuse/Charlotte are 1st round matchups in the 2015 Battle 4 Atlantis, per release.

Michigan... not on the list.
B1G: Maryland (1), Indiana (14), Michigan State (19), Wisconsin (24)
Solid article. I feel like Duncan is a player that we don't really hear much from, so it's nice to see something about him.
Per Sam Webb, the 5* F from Flint is set to be on campus today. He's really, really good and this is a big development. We're in his top 5, but before now he hadn't even visited. Webb has previously stated that he thinks we have a shot with Bridges if we can reel in Winston since the two are friends. Assuming his grades are in order, he will almost assuredly leave with an offer.
Most think Bridges is Kentucky or MSU bound, with the other three schools in his top 5 trailing by a wide margin.
