Nice story on Mlive as someone mentioned yesterday about how Muhammed Ali made it to Michigan. As has been mentioned, a former coach from Buffalo called Beilein. Coach Rooney, who is now in real estate, but still watched a lot of area basketball asked MAAR's coach why he hadn't signed and he was told he was waiting. Rooney told MAAR's coach he would make some calls. The coach throught it was a joke when he heard he had a message from Beilein who was the first person Rooney called. His next call, if Beilein wasn't interested, was going to be Sean Miller at Arizona, who he also had connections with. It wasn't necessary.
Very good read and you have to feel happy for this kid.
