Has anyone heard anything about Isaiah Sykes coming to U-M in 2011 instead of this fall? I have no idea of the trustworthiness of this writer, but a blogger for the Oakland Press, Scott M. Burnstein, has a post about Saturday's Michigan High School All-Star Game played at Oakland University.
Burnstein had this to say about Sykes:
Skyes (22 points, 12 rebounds, 7 slam dunks) was breathtaking the entire way bringing down the house with signature stuff after signature stuff, elevating way above the rim on every one. If all things go his way, this lefty slasher specialist will end up in Ann Arbor next year or the year after playing for UofM.
Indication he might be heading to prep school?
A Flint Journal writer also covered the All-Star Game. This writer called Sykes "currently unsigned but being heavily pursued by the University of Michigan." Further down was this little blurb:
Isaiah Sykes shows his game: While [Keith] Appling and [Maurice] Jones were the two biggest names in the game, Sykes stole the show at times. A strong, fast wing player, Sykes scored 17 points, mostly on dunks diving and slashing through traffic to the rim. He was active and always around the ball, providing the most exciting finishes of anyone in the game.
"That's the first time I've ever seen him play, and the guy can take off," [Demarco] Sanders said.
