and make up part of his informal top 5. Coach Beilein has been keeping contact the last few weeks and of course it doesn’t hurt that Juwan Howard is his cousin. He’s been very receptive to Michigan and the next few months will be telling in terms of how things develop. He’s a take regardless of Jalen Wilson.

As it is right now, Jalen Wilson occupies our only 2019 scholarship, but that's assuming Charles Matthews DOESN'T declare for the draft after this year, which is almost certain. That leaves us with 2 scholarships for 2019. Then, if either another player declares for the draft (maybe Jordan Poole or Brazdeikis) or transfers (maybe Brooks or Davis), then we'll have 3 spots in the 2019 class. And as Matt said, McDaniels is certainly a take, and I can easily see based on how DeJulius plays and if we get DJ Carton, that Brooks transfers

In football it's easier to make room for a stud recruit late in the recruiting game. But in basketball with so many fewer scholarships if we already have 2 commits would we be able to accept McDaniels if he wants in? I know "yes" is an easy answer but how? Convince a guy to transfer?

carton seems most likely to be commit #2 and then shoot for stars with mcdaniels. 

if not who else?

brooks is picking up kentucky steam, girard things have cooled down, would watts be next realistic option (in terms of take/mutual attraction)? 

sounds like mcdaniels could be the best player since webber if we were lucky enough


thanks as always matt

Any thoughts on RJ Hampton? I know that he is tight with Wilson and heard a rumor of reclassifying to 2019. Another guy that I would love to get

while I haven't spoken to RJ direct (I've spoken to those associated with him), the consensus seems to be that he may jump straight to the NBA should the one and done rule change be implemented.
