So, it appears that we lost out on the Zeigler sweepstakes, but before another thread pops up asking why John Beilein hates recruiting 5 stars, or other nonsense, I thought it would be good to show just how well basketball recruiting has been going for Michigan.
This year's class, thus far features two top 100 players in Evan Smotrycz and Tim Hardaway Jr., to go along with big man John Horford.
It has also seems that Michigan will eventually end up with wing-man Isaiah Sykes, who is an under-the-radar prospect due to the fact that he has shuffled from school to school. It seems that the only thing preventing Sykes from committing is the fact that he has not yet received an offer.
Next year's class already features top 50 point guard Carlton Brundidge. Brundidge also happens to be an AAU teammate of 5 star center Amir Williams, who most early reports have leaning blue.
Not to mention the fact that the consensus number 1 recruit in the nation for 2011, Michael Gilchrist, has been to campus several times.
It seems that Beilein is doing an excellent job recruiting, and even with the loss of Zeigler, the talent that Michigan basketball appears to be bringing in these next few years bode extremely well for the future of the program.
