Perhaps many of you already know where I'm going with this. Jennings, high school PG phenom, jilts college b-ball for Italy. Makes some cash money, plays against old Italian dudes, then gets drafted first round by the Bucks. Proceeds to get off to a fast start in the NBA (see 55 pt. game), starting premature rookie of the year talkin'.
Anyway, I think that if this is the beginning of a trend - high school phenoms going to EU as opposed to college - it helps Michigan. Beilein's system doesn't attract these types who might otherwise go to the OSU's of the world (see Greg Oden). Thus, Michigan dominates all of college b-ball with slow white kids. Discuss amongst yourselves.
