Eron Gordon (2016 class) and Eron Harris (WV transfer) are set to visit UM. We have a better chance with Harris than Gordon, it seems.
Erons! It is beautiful here in Ann Arbor!
About twenty years ago?
Must be a central Indiana thing.
who get the first offers in two weeks. I expect Leaf and Thornton will for sure, with Thornton probably the only pure PG. That's a talented group of wings and combo guards showing interest..
Tyus Battle is probably a lock to get one, as long as he goes through with his planned visit. And Seth Towns has at least a decent shot. He's less highly ranked, but UM seems to really like him.
Then it's wait and see with the rest. As far as chances to land those prospects, I'd guess from most likely to least likely...
Battle (has not denied Syracuse is his leader)
As I understand it, Gordon is a bit of a fall back option at this point.
Rivals thinks he's a second tier player, because even though he's a pure scorer, he needs lots and lots of shots to do it. That fact probably makes him a poor fit for what Michigan wants to do as well.
Just looking at the numbers, especially those of Eron Harris, you can definitely see the advantage of having dual Erons on the team, even though it seems Harris might be a better fit. In the end, whatever happens, of course, but both of them showing interest in coming to Ann Arbor, recruit or transfer aside, is definitely a good sign for us.
Indy Star had another article on Thursday with further info on Gordon:
Though coaches can't contact him directly until June 15, a number of blueblood programs keep in touch with Gordon's family. Gordon said Duke, Kansas, Kentucky and Indiana are schools showing the most interest, though IU is the only program among those to offer a scholarship so far. He also has offers from Arizona State, Nebraska and Purdue.
Regarding Harris, I like the timing of his visits, and not just because Michigan will be the last of his three finalists he'll visit. Presumably, he'll be ready to make a decision shortly after his June 6-7 visit to Ann Arbor, so it looks like Beilein & Co. will be able to take his decision into account before issuing their offers to 2016 prospects on June 15.
What is truly amazing is Erin Harris is the only NCAA player other than nik stauskas to have that high a three point percentage unassisted and he is 6'2. We will miss that Canadian a lot - as far as college players go I don't think we will fully appreciate how amazing it is for someone almost 6'6 to create three point offense at that level.
I'd say the opposite. Nik's height enables him to shoot over smaller opponents off the dribble easier than a guy who is 6'2. Eron's height will probably help keep him in college until his eligibility expires.
Are they related?
2016 recruiting seems to be going awfully well. Seems like every week I'm seeing posts here or at UMHoops about a 4* or typically a 5* being interested in visiting Michigan
They commit. And it is even better when they actually sign.
All of your Erons are belong to us.
of a new eron
Belein is using eronautics to lift his team to new heights
No idea why but I read their names as A-ron Gordon and then E-ron Harris.
You mean A-aron?
