Mo Bamba said today that biggest factor in his decision will be relationship with the coach. "Me and the head coach have to be very tight."— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) March 28, 2017
Bamba said he was at U-M vs VCU in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. It stuck with him. "Michigan was a school I loved in like 7th and 8th grade."— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) March 28, 2017
Big part of Beilein's pitch to Bamba is putting him in ball screens & pick-and-pop spots. "They have versatile bigs, which appeals to me."— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) March 28, 2017
Sam Webb has said he has advocates in his circle pushing for Michigan (Wes at Nike). Frustrating this kid had to ask to be recruited. He might be committed by now if Michigan began recruiting him a few years ago like the other schools on his list. Based on his comments I would think Shaka Smart and Texas have the edge given he coached Bamba on the USA U18 team.
