UM Hoops relayed the information, reported by EagleAction.com, that German hoops star Patrick Heckmann has decided to take his talents to Boston College. While he would have been a nice addition to Michigan's recruiting class this year, this is not a devastating loss. Luke Hancock is a possible filler now, but I would prefer they just save the scholarship for a later year. If you recall, this is the second time since Beilein was hired that we have missed out on a German, the other being potential NBA Draft pick Robin Benzing.

"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns
