the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

You need ESPN insider credentials, but the read about this 2015 kid from Kentucky is worth it: http://insider.espn.go.com/blog/colleges/michigan/post?id=6724#more
When I read it I felt like I was reading the "Curious Case of Sidd Finch" SI article but then I realized it was no April Fool's Joke. Watch out if we get RB talent like this kid in the class early or on the team in general. Looks like we are early leaders for him, so GO BLUE!
Crazy stats as Fresh & Sophomore.
Per MIchigan Hockey Net via TheWolverine, Brendan Warren has committed as a member of the 2015 class which means he was born in 97! I was under the impression people born in 1997 were still 5 or 6 but maybe that's just me getting old.
He seems to have mixed reviews (as I would expect a 15 year old to have) where some say
“He is a good, solid all-around player with nice hockey sense, produced at #Select15s too. Yes probably ‘B’ player.”
while others come out and say
Ryan Ballard, a Player Advisor/Representative with International Sports Agency, chimed in that Warren is “considered one of the top 10 97s among scouts and agents.”
Either way, good to have him aboard. He seems to be somewhere between good and amazing. HT: michiganhockey.net
I realize it may seem early to discuss a class of 2015 basketball player, but this kid is a phenom and he has genuine interest in Michigan. He's a 6'11 center with a great handle and in inside-outside game. Umhoops had a nice interview with the kid where he describes his Michigan fandom.
Unfortunately we probably should start counting our chickens. John Calapari recently added the young star to the Dominican Republic National Team. The 16 year old will be coached by Calipari and playing alongside Al Horford and Charlie Villanueva in a quest to go to the Olympics. Calipari will certainly have a upperhand in his recruitment.
