"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
Good pickup for MSU
Gateway (near Pittsburgh, PA) has been a D1 recruiting hotbed since Smith arrived 11 years ago. The school board has been giving him a hard time the past few years because he was both football coach and AD. It looks like he had enough, and moved on to bigger things.
This is Montae Nicholson's school. I hope this coaching change doesn't drastically change his recruitment, as I think UM is the (slight) leader right now.
