OT: Trey Ziegler to Pitt

Submitted by Phil Davison on April 7th, 2012 at 5:53 PM

Per Jeff Goodman at CBS, Trey Ziegler will attend Pitt next year.



I know we never contacted him but I think Pitt is getting a solid player - big for them after an unusual down year.

Good luck to him, I agree with rman that he is a very solid player and I would not have minded seeing him in a Michigan uniform but Pitt is a good BB school who have produced some 1st rd picks in the past. He will be fine!

Seems like his breath just be really stinky or something because I don't see the basketball logic in not going after him with the full court given our current situation.

IU ran into a crunch with their wave of early commitments last year. I'm personally glad he went out east. I think he's going to be even better than his ratings suggest.

Isn't he the same guy who reported that Burke was definitely leaving?  A story that no other news organization has reported and is, by all accounts, not confirmed?  Maybe we should wait a week or so before we know for sure Ziegler is going to Pittsburgh.

Goodman usually does solid work at CBS.  He might have jumped the gun on Trey, but we don't yet know if his "sources" are correct or not.  Sometimes, we have a tendency to want to "shoot the messenger" in situations like this, but Goodman is a solid basketball guy.  He either works fanatically hard, is a great curator of information, or both.   

Besides, he also said in the same article that Michigan was looking at Spike Albrecht.  He did sorta nail that one.

Choosing Pitt over the ACC keeps their dominance down. It helps he didn't pick any big ten schools either. The facuilities are great at pitt also. New and well designed. 
Ironic he was looking at UCLA and Pitt too. Holland coached at Pitt before leaving for UCLA and Dixon coached under Holland before becoming the head coach. Zeigler stayed consistent at least.

Any chance that his dad may get a job somewhere else? Maybe as an assistant at Pitt or another bcs conference? Or as a head coach somewhere else?
