Saw on my facebook that Carlton Brundidge will sign his letter of intent tomorrow @ 11 if anyone was wondering.
I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
a win for michigan!
if anyone was wondering
It might be of interest to a few.
This is awesome!!! He is a great player
I was definitely wondering about this, him and Trey in the back court is gonna be a nasty combination. Now if only we can snag Amir Williams I would be in pure euphoria.
Unfortunately, snagging Williams isn't sounding very likely, despite Michigan making a strong, late push:
Multiple sources have begun to report that Detroit Country Day basketball standout Amir Williams, despite some late, promising visits to Ann Arbor, will be choosing between Ohio State and Florida for his commitment this Wednesday. It sounds like Michigan is going to take the bronze in the recruiting race for the 6'9" center... which means they will take nothing.

I read this as Michigan's "basketball package" was inherently non-existent compared to those of tOSU and Florida.
Unfortunate, but true. Hopefully our play can convince recruits like this to choose us in the future.
Michigan's "financial package" was inherently non-existent compared to those of tOSU and Florida.
Because the three programs are peers in every way, right?
is extremely shady and John Beilein is as straight as they come.
So we have fans that are big enough homers to think its out of the realm of possibility that a recruit would go to OSU or Florida instead of Michigan without some sort of financial incentive? Wow. Just Wow.
people are just frustrated, especially with the possibility of losing a recruit of this caliber from our backyard to the goddamn Buckeyes.
I am LOL'ing at you because you are so shocked by this.
but i hear things from my indiana friends (IU and PU grads) about those indianapolis recruits that brought osu from the ashes in basketball.
They didn't bring OSU up from the dead. OSU was an established program. I believe they won the Big Ten when those two were HS seniors. Your friends may not want to admit it, but over the past decade, OSU has flat-out been a better basketball program than either of the Indiana schools.
Its hypocritical when UM fans criticize other basketball programs for allegedly paying athletes. We pretty much set the precedent for that.
Sorry, but we are not in a position at which we can assume malfeasance on the part of any school that beats us for a recruit. Florida and OSU have been to a combined five Final Fours since 1999, won a boatload of conference titles, and Florida has won two national titles. Over that same stretch, we've, uh . . . won one tourney game and an NIT. And we won't even get into the topic of facilities, or fan support.
Trey Burke and Carlton will make a nice backcourt
Now we need to recruit like 5 young men who are at least 6'7 or taller ranked in the top 100.
...it. Not because I was worried, but because I'm tired of hearing some complain about Brundidge's inability to conform the scheduling of his LOI signing to their preferences.
is living in a really cool fantasy land. Disappointment, sure, but nobody should have thought him anything other than Florida or OSU's recruit to lose.
are great coaches, but so is JB. Plus, AW has the chance to play in his own backyard, and become legendary for turning the UM program around. He won't have that chance at OSU or UF.
Well then I sure hope he goes to Florida if he doesn't come here.
I get why Florida is a national draw for football, but I just can't see a recruit getting excited about SEC basketball, with UK being the only exception.
