The Detroit News's John Niyo has a nice overview of Jon Sanderson's S&C program - and how he works with Beilein to develop '15-'16 Moe Wagners into '16-'17 Moe Wagners.
The whole article is worth a read - here's a taste:
“(Beilein) has a lot of confidence in recruiting and signing a kid that isn’t quite big enough, strong enough or athletic enough,” Sanderson said. “Because I think he has a lot of confidence that we can develop and make him better.”
Much is made of Beilein’s finicky recruiting, and a reluctance, it seems, to chase five-star talent.
“But if you get a guy who’s A-plus in every category, he’s a top-5 recruit — those guys are hard to get,” Sanderson said. “And if you do get ’em it’s hard to have a stable program because you only have ’em for one year. So to me, if you’re going to be deficient in any of these categories, get the length, get the skill set, get the kid that fits the culture, and I’ll make him a better athlete. I’ll develop him.”
