Apparently in the new NBA 2K16 game, in the MyCareer mode you will be able to choose from 10 schools for your player to attend, and Michigan is one of the 10. MyCareer mode follows you from high school, to college, and through the NBA.

Confirmation from 3 people with the game, Wisconsin is 10th college in NBA 2K16. Here are the other 9. pic.twitter.com/LNC8jsmpx1

Cassius Winston Commits to MSU

Cassius Winston Commits to MSU

Submitted by Rumsey on September 18th, 2015 at 2:42 PM

No real surprise here. MSU has a scary good class now with 3 247 composite Top 50 players and potentially one more with Miles Bridges yet to decide (the two have discussed being a package deal, but we all know how that can go). Bridges announces on October 3rd and has a top 3 of Kentucky, MSU, and Indiana - probably in that order. Oh well. Beilein's still gonna Beilein.

MBB: Miles Bridges is no longer planning on visiting Michigan

MBB: Miles Bridges is no longer planning on visiting Michigan

Submitted by Erik_in_Dayton on September 14th, 2015 at 2:33 PM

Sam Webb reported this on WTKA this morning.  Sam initially said Bridges, the five-star forward from Flint who goes to a prep school in West Virginia, would visit Michigan despite Cassius Winston no longer being an option for the Wolverines (Bridges and Winston are AAU teammates).  But Sam then issued a correction to that, saying he'd just received word that the visit was off. 

Sam also said he considers Bridges a "near lock" to commit to Kentucky, so this may not mean much. 

 

The first Andy Mignery segment has Sam's correction:

Other injury updates from his appearance on WTKA this morning.

Beilein believes that by Michigan's opening game on Nov. 13, Albrecht will be "as quick as he's ever been."

Beilein said both Caris LeVert (foot) and Derrick Walton Jr. (toe/foot) have been "really good in their recovery."
