Chris Balas of TheWolverine.com provides us with this (non-paywalled) report of Nick Stauskas's just completed unofficial visit to Michigan. The visit was quite the success.
Stauskas arrived in town Sunday, a day before he was allowed to visit with the coaches. He received the campus tour the following day, watching video of recent games and renderings of the practice facility, wowed by the progress already made.
Following lunch with sophomore Tim Hardaway Jr., the Michigan coaches and others, Stauskas confirmed what many have believed for some time.
"I think everyone knows how good a fit I am for Michigan, and Michigan for me," he said. "Now it's even clearer with how much I love it."
The article then discusses his successes on the AAU circuit this summer and then details Stauskas's upcoming plans.
"I might got to New York for a bit and work out with Steve Nash. He's one of my good friends," Stauskas said of the NBA all-star and fellow Canadian. "I could got to Houston for a bit and work out with [Washington Wizards'] Mo Evans, who is also a friend. I got to know him at the NBA Players Camp in June. Stauskas will return to Ann Arbor in September for his official visit, either on the 17th or the 24th.
And yes, he's hoping his recruiting class is rounded out with the inclusion of one more recruit.
"If we can get [Rivals.com five-star big man] Mitch McGary, that's the cherry on top," he said. "Getting him would be unbelievable. I haven't talked to him - I'm just hoping somehow he ends up at Michigan."
So are we, Nick. So are we.
