2012 MBB Recruit Matt Costello Interview

Submitted by MGoShoe on June 20th, 2010 at 7:43 PM

Following up on my post on 2012 MBB offerees, GBW has posted a Sam Webb interview with 2012 offeree Matt Costello (6'8" C/PF, Bay City Western HS).

He talks about being a coach's son, his battles last season with Trey Zeigler, compares himself to Zack Novack and his priorities for selecting a school.

Reading between the lines of his answers, I'd say he's a Michigan lean.  Of course that could change five times between now and next summer when it appears he'll be making his decision.

Seems like another good kid.  I really like the players that Beilein recruits.  He is beginning to pull top (top 100 at least) players that have a good head on their shoulders.  I am also a fan of recruiting players that will more than likely play 4 years rather than the one and done players.  It allows for chemistry and senior leadership ala Butler.

I honestly though Darius Morris had a decent year last year.  He was kind of thrown into the wolves at first but he started to figure things out after a while.  I think we will see him really develop this year.

However, I think the best recruits are coming soon with Evan Smotrycz coming this year and Brundidge coming the following year (hopefully along with someone like Amir Williams).

One Top 100 guy I am not sold on yet is Vogrich.  I am not saying he won't eventually be a good player, I just wish he would have red-shirted.  He can definitely shoot but is he strong enough and athletic enough to play at this level.  He is a guy that really needs to eat some doughnuts and hit the weight room.
