I know, I know.  What does this have to do with JH?  Well, Michigan basketball plays today so I hope you at least find it somewhat relevant.  Todays matchup just became a lot more difficult.  

SMU junior forward Markus Kennedy has been academically cleared to play, the team's coaching staff told ESPN on Friday, and he will be available against Michigan on Saturday. 

Kennedy hasn't played this season after averaging 12.4 points and 7.1 rebounds last season for the Mustangs.
 

PG's

Interesting discussion during half time of the Duke v UConn basketball game. ESPN analysts  Jason Williams (former DUke PG) and Seth Greenberg had a discussion about the Top 5 PG's in the country. Surprisingly Greenbery chose Monte Morris as his top PG in the country. Williams listed Morris as his #5 PG in th country.

Some of you will recall that Morris played HS ball in the state of Michigan and was offered by Beilein. At the time Beilein offered Walton and Morris and told both that there would only be 1 PG  in the class. Morris dragged his feet and Walton committed fairly quickly. Presumably Morris held out for "bigger" offers that never materialized. he ended up at Iowas State but I doubt that was his first choice. There hae been rumblings that Morris actually wanted to play at Michigan and was bitter that Walton "took his spot." 

Derryck Thornton (MBB Recruit) to Reclassify to 2015?

Derryck Thornton (MBB Recruit) to Reclassify to 2015?

Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog is reporting that Louisville has offered 5* PG Derryck Thornton, a Michigan basketball target for the c/o 2016, as a 2015 prospect.  According to Zagoria, Thornton's father has said that it's unlikely he would re-classify, but the family is considering the possibility.  If Thornton does indeed re-classify to 2015, it may help Michigan's chances.  Michigan and Duke are the top two teams for Thornton right now, based on 247's Crystal Ball tool.  Thornton may have some hesitation about committing to Duke before he knows whether or not stud freshman PG Tyus Jones will leave for the NBA.  Same goes for Louisville and Terry Rozier.  Although UofM has their own incumbent at the PG spot, Beilein has played two PGs for long stretches of time this year, an idea that may be attractive to Thornton.
