"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
On today's recruiting roundup, Sam Webb provided a good summary of where Michigan basketball's 2014 recruiting stands following Bates-Diop and Tate committing to OSU. Here's a link to the podcast and an embed:
Sam briefly mentioned the two other prospects who currently have Michigan offers—Devin Booker, a 6-4 shooting guard from Moss Point H.S. in Mississippi, ranked #18 in the country by ESPN, and Trevon Bluiett, a 6-5 small forward from Park Tudor School in Indianapolis, ranked #47 nationally. Sam said that the Wolverines seem really strong with Bluiett.
Two other 2014 prospects seem to be next in line to get a Michigan offer, according to Sam:
- Vincent Edwards: 6-6 small forward from Middletown H.S. in Ohio. Michigan staff has told him that if he makes it to campus, he'll get an offer.
- Ricky Doyle: 6-9 power forward out of Bishop Verot H.S. in Fort Myers, Florida. Doyle is looking for a school combining academics and athletics, so Michigan and Duke both have a good shot at him.
Also, here are a couple more names to keep an eye on: Tyler Wideman, a 6-7 PF out of Lake Central H.S., the same school that Glenn Robinson III attended, and Kameron Chatman, a 6-6 small forward from Long Beach Polytechnic in California.
This may all be old news for those who have been following Michigan basketball recruiting closely, but I haven't really been doing so, and I found Sam's rundown useful. More than anything, I think this points out that there are still plenty of other good prospects on Michigan's radar for 2014
