Good article on how the Wolverines' sudden strong presence in the recruitment of Dallas Prime Prep Academy sophomore center Elijah Thomas is shaping up.

was looking forward to reading about a 5* 2014 or '15 Offensive Line target to snap the ball to Shane or Wilton.

Carry on...

We're gonna have to fight off the traditional blue bloods for his services. I hope LaVall Jordan continues to bond and show rapport with this kid...I'd love to see what a 5-star pure center could do in Beilein's system

Here's a video with some select highlights of Thomas. It's from earlier in the year, but as someone pointed out, it would be awesome to see what he could do in Beilein's system. 

I liked the side story about how people around him did not think much of him as a basketball player a few years ago, so he set out to become a good player and has indeed become sought after. You have to admire that sort of drive to succeed in any kid. I think you want players coming in knowing there is room to grow and who want to be better even when they are good already.
