"If he's proven healthy, the air of mystery (around LeVert) could be a positive," said a scout for a playoff-bound Eastern Conference team. "Right now, the air of mystery is negative."
"There's a certain level of confidence and composure he brings to the court," said sophomore forward Aubrey Dawkins, who played the bulk of his minutes as a freshman while LeVert sat on the end of the bench in a sweat suit. "When you know you have a player like that on your team of that caliber, it's just like, we're in his hands and he can do a lot of things for this team. It's a comfort. It's nice."
"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
Knowing what you know now, that loss to Ohio seems... good? Not too bad at all? It started the chain of events that lead to Caris at M.
"He's really playing well, he's really doing well," Beilein said. "He makes a difference with our scout team with defense, and he gets to where he wants to offensively."
“He’s in the gym more than a lot of people,” redshirt junior forward Jordan Morgan said in Chicago. “He just wants to get better. His problem was his body, and he’s already put on a lot of weight and is going to continue to do that. He just has a lot of game, and he’s willing to take what anyone has to tell him and willing to just learn."
"(I'm going to preserve his redshirt) as long as I can, and really make an educated decision after some time and really give us some quality time to work with him. It can backfire on you, but most times you do that when you really think (someone) can be a special player with more time and more weight."
