this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Keita Bates-Diop just committed to Ohio State. What the heck just happened here? I thought someone predicted he was going to commit to Michigan a couple days ago.
Michigan b-ball target RT @ReggieRankin: Keita Bates-Diop has committed to Ohio State according to coach Mike Mullins
Official committed to THE Ohio st university!!
[ed: Michigan is likely to get Keita Bates-Diop, says Chris Balas, after saying Michigan was unlikely to get Keita Bates-Diop.]
This would be a huge get for the 2014 class to go along with that already outstanding class of 2013.
#34 nationally - Zakarie Irvin. G.
#47 nationally - Derrick Walton. G.
#107 nationally - Mark Donnal. F.
edit - oops thought he was 2013.
Tomorrow is "offer day" for John Beilien - the first 2014 hoops offers go out. Last Summer was extremely productive, as we locked up our entire #2-ranked 2013 class (thus far) within a month or two of offers going out.
Who commits in the next month or two?
I'm bullish - I think we get Booker and Bates-Diop, plus a quality big (possibly Sean O'Mara) by the end of July.
Great coverage at umhoops.
