Putting into perspective how good Michigan's class could be this year

Submitted by Champeen on May 31st, 2018 at 9:47 AM

Most likely scenario....

DJ Carton
jalen Wilson

Last Year Rank: 40th

If Michigan lands the duo of DJ Carton and Jalen Wilson, it would give them a recruiting team ranking of about 40th.  While at first glance, this does not seem so great, take a deeper look.  Michigan would have been the highest ranked class with only 2 commits.  If you sorted by averge per commit, it would be a top 5 class.


Rocket Watts scenario...

DJ Carton
Jalen Wilson
Rocket Watts

Last Year Rank:  tied 16th

Interestingly, this 3 man class would be about a point and a half away from last years really, really good 5 man class.  Fairly amazing.


Jackpot scenario....

Jaden McDaniels
DJ Carton
Jalen Wilson

Total Points: 63.94
Last Year Rank: 15th

#3 class as far as points per recruit.  With this class combined with last years class and the coaching at Michigan, Michigan wins the NBA finals 3 straight years.  Easily.

head back to the RCMB, where the dillusional belief in Sparty's future greatness following your dumpster fire this year (underachieving hoops team, Nassar, all other felonies) is shared w other genetically challenged fans.  It is a wonderful place full of joy, fantasy and stupidity - enjoy yourself...

Jalen Wilson, D.J. Carton and Rocket Watts would be one hell of a class of 3.  When you add them to the 2017 and 2018 classes, you are looking at a powerful team for years to come...

The future is looking very bright for hoops!!!

If some of this thread no longer makes sense, it is because an account called "FUCK MGOBLOG" was politely told to fuck off.

Well, perhaps not politely. Still, it's gone.

Watts and Carton would be in the same class. Watts is a PG and I believe that JB is recruiting him that way.  It's a take for either PG whoever wants to commit first.

rankings are in basketball. There's so much variation in class size that there's no good way to account for it.

Beilein is recruiting a lot of top 100 players for the potential third opening. It's going to be one of his best classes.

Some teams only have one scholarships and get a top 50 player which already adds to the depth they have. If livers and Poole improve enough but stay 2019 is gonna be very special!

I don't follow bball recruiting as avidly as I do football, so could someone kindly clear up this question?  I thought there was only one available scholarship, until Moe departed, so two available now.  Where does the third come from?  Is someone planning to transfer?  (Names only if its public, please...)
