Michigan gets a sweet shooting gaurd to commit, UM is 3-0, MSU is 1-2, the hoops practice facility will be finished in the next couple of years, it sounds like Minor might be ok, I'm about to go on vacation, and my fantasy football team is dominating. The only thing that could make this better is if Molk's foot turns out not to be broken. It's great to be a Michigan wolverine!

Hot damn! We are seeing that wonderful phenomena that comes with hot programs: guys making sure they get their scholarhsip. We see this with Texas, OSU and USC football recruiting, and with top basketball programs. The math is simple - there are just a couple spots left and talented preferred walk-ons competing as well.

Casey and Trey have to feel a small bit of pressure to make a decision if they are leaning UM.

Sam Webb calls Carleton Brundidge the best player in the state of Michigan in the class of 2011. A huge pickup for Beilein and the University of Michigan program. Kid apparently can flat out score. If you're not on the UM Basketball bandwagon already, jump on now.

I have to admit, while I was very happy to have John Beilein as a coach when Bill Martin hired him away from WV, I doubted whether he would be able to recruit big time talent to UM. I assumed he would make Michigan respectable, but would have a relatively low ceiling. He has really proven me wrong and is drawing in some serious talent. I think he has been particularly impressive in recruiting in-state talent. I am very excited to see where he can take this team. He is obviously a great x's and o's coach, and with the talent he is recruiting, Michigan could really take off.

Awesome. It didn't take long for Beilein to turn Michigan into the kind of place you commit early to. Especially awesome is that he's a local kid. When you have that reputation locally, that's right where you want to be. Now let's go get his teammate Amir Williams.
