"This is really important to be here," Lewan said. "I'm here to give back and help out my teammate."
Let's avoid the Caris LeVert comparison because other than being a late signee and school he has a comittiment to, and size (6'6), build (makes Caris look fat) and position (SG) he is nothing like Caris... ok ok, feel free to get all crazy on projections.
More seriously he only has one offer and even that offer was originally a North Dakota State offer but said school's coach moved to Ohio and brought the offer with him. Taylor says Seton Hall and Creighton are sniffing around in the general vicinity but no offers. Kid played in same AAU program as Mitch, Spike, and GR3.
Anyhow UMhoops.com has the full story.

Interesting article on the 2014 recruiting landscape. Interesting Peppers quote.......
"There's nothing wrong with Michigan. I'm not worried they went 7-6 or about anything else anyone has written. The future is bright for Michigan football. Don't count us out just yet. It's Michigan for God's sake."
-- Jabrill Peppers, the nation's top 2014 cornerback
Rivals released their final top 250 players today. The only two guys committed to Michigan from #101-250 are Drake Harris and Michael Ferns.
Saw this on Twitter. Kyle Seychel is a kicker/punter from Hartland, Michigan, class of 2014.
From his Kornblue Kicking profile:
Kyle is one of the top combo prospects in the class of 2014. He has as much potential as any specialist we have ever worked with in Michigan, and that includes numerous Division 1 scholarship athletes. . . . We don’t say this often, but Kyle has NFL potential.
This week's scouting report is on Minneapolis (MN) Washburn running back Jeff Jones. If you've been paying attention to recruiting in recent weeks, you probably know that Jones is a Minnesota commit who got a couple more significant offers during/after the Under Armour All-American Game, including the one from Michigan.
Courtesy of Rivals here is the list of recruits that Nussmeier is considered the "lead" recruiter:
|Ronnie Clark||ATH||6-3||205||4.59||1/17/2014||Calera, AL|
|David Cornwell||QB||6-5||235||12/13/2013||Norman, OK|
|Keith Holcombe||LB||6-4||209||1/17/2014||Tuscaloosa, AL|
|Derek Kief||WR||6-4||199||1/17/2014||Cincinnati, OH|
|Bo Scarbrough||ATH||6-2||222||4.5||1/17/2014||Bradenton, FL|
|Roderick Bernard||WR||5-10||175||Houston, TX|
|Nick Holman||LB||6-2||227||4.66||Madison , AL|
|Marlon Humphrey||DB||6-0||168||1/24/2014||Hoover, AL|
|Tyler Luatua||TE||6-4||230||11/8/2013||La Mirada, CA|
|Josh Malone||WR||6-3||195||Gallatin, TN|
|Dailyn Patton||DE||6-1||257||Northport, AL|
|Malik Rosier||QB||6-2||193||Mobile, AL|
|Tyler Swindle||OL||6-5||295||Hayden, AL|
I doubt we have a chance with the Alabama kids but some of the out-of-staters may be up for grabs. I remember Bo Scarbrough being on Michigan's radar and he's yet to take his official visit.
