"According to a report by Sam Webb, Michigan will host five-star center Mohamed Bamba for an official visit this weekend.  Bamba is ranked 3rd nationally according to 247 Sports Composite and Duke and Kentucky lead his Crystal Ball projections. He’s also considering Harvard, where he took his most recent recruiting visit."…

Fun fact: my wife grew up in the same hood as Ritchie Valens (not at the same time, obviously). Ritchie Valens park is right around the corner from my in-laws. Other interesting thing: Valens didn't speak Spanish. Which is especially weird if you know that neighborhood.

Yeah, but we don't know where Mo Bamba will be ranked when he enrolls either.  At similar points in their recruitment, McGary was also a 5 star.  But yes, I understand that the poster above wasb't trying to make a point he was just trying to be a dick.  In which case, his point was made loud and clear.

Are you talking about me? Was I being an ass or "a dick?" I mean, I didn't feel like an ass or a dick when I posted some mild snark.  Please accept my sincerest apologies for questioning the recruiting abilities of our head coach w/r/t 5* centers. I enjoy the hell of John Beilein and appreciate nearly every other aspect of his tenure at Michigan.

We know this:

1) McGary was a highly rated recruit. Very early 5* with offers from everyone.

2) By the time he signed with us, he was a consensus 4* without as much interest.

3) We were glad he signed with us.

4) Despite his ulitmate and maybe unfortunate inability to stay on the court, we were really glad when he played like a 5* during the 2013 tournament run.

Peeps need to relax. It's a good time to be a Michigan fan and I don't want to be the one to ruin anyone's day.

This is a SHIT attitude, but at this me when he signs. My little heart is on strike from getting excited about MBB recruiting until we start landing some of these top guys again.
