Locking down instate recruits is important, I get that. But when you're recruiting well elsewhere, it's just not that big of a deal and you're just looking for something to complain about. If we had a top 3 class of all out of state kids and got zero in state kids, people would still find a way to complain about it

According to 247, we've only offered Jabri Abdur-Rahim, but this doesn't seem super crazy since Beilein usually doesn't offer unless the player comes to campus

I'm really excited for the 2020 QBs, especially Parker McQuarrie. He's got beautiful touch on the ball and makes great throws even with bad receivers. He's 6'7" and pretty skinny, but if he can fill out, then he can be an amazing player

06/13/2018 - 6:40pm "it seems to me that the…

"it seems to me that the combo of Beilein's coaching, an NBA "similar" offense, and Camp Sanderson should be fairly attractive, yet so may players just end up going the Kentucky/Kansas/Duke route"

I think the "problem" with us is that we actually want to build a team, as weird as that is to say. On WTKA recently, Beilein said wants to build and develop a team, not just bring together talent. And building a team and developing players is a process that can take multiple years. He also said that in order to play, you need to prove it in practice and gain his trust. And I think all of those things don't help get one and done's who just want to be the top guns and have long leash until they can go to the NBA ASAP

06/13/2018 - 6:32pm If he's a one and done, I do…

If he's a one and done, I do think that put's Michigan at a disadvantage. Beilein's system is hard to learn and he needs to trust you in order to give you playing time. If he wants to be the top gun from the start with lots of freedom, I don't think he's gonna get that at Michigan

Why so much variability in rankings though? I 100% trust Don Brown, but I do find it odd that 247 had him as a 3* while seemingly everyone else is very high on him

I think we gotta cut them some slack. Can you really blame them for fixating on us given the dumpster fire that is Michigan State right now?

Another interesting 2020 basketball development is that Jalen Wilson is very close friends with 5* CG RJ Hampton, who is currently the #4 player in the nation, and Wilson has said he's actively recruiting him

The Rangers seem to do this a lot

06/03/2018 - 9:34am This means a lot

Elite 11 initial rankings are based off total body of work before the camp, thus giving those who performed well before the camp a head start in rankings, and those with less body a work a chance to move up. Apparently Cade has improved a lot in the last few months and the fact that he was the top performer the first day is another good sign of improvement going into the rest of the camp and his senior year. Hope he keeps it up

06/02/2018 - 7:35pm Elite 11 MVP isn't the best predictor though

Since the Elite 11 started in 1999, I looked at all the MVPs and from a quick rundown, I'd say less than 50% of MVPs have what I would consider a solid college career. Being MVP doesn't really mean a whole lot

06/02/2018 - 1:54pm No, they don't

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elite_11

Here's a list of Elite 11 participants and MVPs. Winning MVP at Elite 11 isn't a good indicator of college success

06/01/2018 - 1:07pm Is it McDaniel or McDaniels???

247 says his name is Jaden McDaniels, but in this post and other places on this site his name is McDaniel. Can someone please set the record straight?

05/31/2018 - 10:57pm Finding space for a 3rd guy isn't too difficult

As it is right now, Jalen Wilson occupies our only 2019 scholarship, but that's assuming Charles Matthews DOESN'T declare for the draft after this year, which is almost certain. That leaves us with 2 scholarships for 2019. Then, if either another player declares for the draft (maybe Jordan Poole or Brazdeikis) or transfers (maybe Brooks or Davis), then we'll have 3 spots in the 2019 class. And as Matt said, McDaniels is certainly a take, and I can easily see based on how DeJulius plays and if we get DJ Carton, that Brooks transfers

05/31/2018 - 11:38am Agreed

I don't mind either and I think his lack of athleticism is over stated. But it is something that people have brought up

05/31/2018 - 10:39am We're in it

Matt D I believe said we are in it with McDaniel at the moment, but Matt hasn't spoken with his camp in a while. Hopefully we can get him on campus

05/30/2018 - 10:47pm It can only help, right?

Rekindling that Michigan connection with Howard since he could be in the area and using it to our advantage to get McDaniel

05/30/2018 - 8:08pm I'd say Wilson is a bit more skilled than Livers

based on the ~100 spots Wilson has on Livers in the final composite ranking

05/30/2018 - 8:05pm He shot 39% from 3 his junior year

So his AAU 3PT%, as the post said, probably isn't the best represenation of his 3 point shooting. I guess we'll see how he performs his senior year

05/28/2018 - 9:19am This is my answer as well

With a win a over OSU, that would've given us a a lot of momentum going into the B1G championship game. Speight still would've been injured, but I still think we could've beaten Wisco again and that would've made for a sure fire playoff spot. Even if we didn't do anything in the playoff, and at least scored any points against Clemson (lol 31-0), that still would've changed the perception of Harbaugh and the program. No longer would people be complaining about how we can't beat rivals anymore or how we underperform. A season beating MSU and OSU, plus a playoff birth would've changed recent history of the program

05/23/2018 - 3:26pm If a UM fan actually thinks Milton can start this year

If a UM fan actually thinks Milton can start this year, you lose all credibility to me and I don't take anything you say seriously. Maybe he's playing well, but there's no way a player who completed less than 50% of his passes his senior year of HS is playing as a true freshman unless it's a last resort.

Speaking of Notre Dame though, I do think it's a crime that ESPN FPI is giving us a 32% chance of winning that game

05/23/2018 - 7:31am This Quote

"The disciplinary process and ultimate finding were motivated by an anti-male and anti-athlete discriminatory bias"

I didn't just read that did I?

05/22/2018 - 10:05pm Gonna miss Moe

I remember seeing him play his freshman year and seeing what he has grown into has been amazing. The passion he showed on the court was truly inspiring and I think he will definitely go down as one of my favorite Michigan basketball players. I'm going to miss his behind the back dribble drives, but I'm really gonna miss his pure energy and enthusiasm that he showed on the court every game. Go make your money, Moe, and show the world what you're made of. It seems impossible to not succeed with the drive and passion he exudes 

05/22/2018 - 6:04am Surprising article

Surprised Eleven Warriors actually wrote an article with any substance or actual analysis. Usually they're just fluff pieces! *slow clap*

05/21/2018 - 5:37pm Not sure

They did get a commitment from Tyger Campbell before he flipped to UCLA last year, so they're able to sorta get top tier guys (even if they flip) without much actual success on court, so there could be some weird stuff going on

05/21/2018 - 4:17pm Wilson vs Weems?

You descirbed Wilson as "essentially Romeo Weems minus the athleticism and game-changing defensive versatility" and while I agree with that to some degree, from what I've seen, it seems like Jalen Wilson is more skilled and advanced offensively at this point than Weems. Has Weems improved that much recently where he is more skilled than WIlson?

05/21/2018 - 4:11pm Why do you believe that the longer they take

Why do you believe that the longer they take, the worse off Michigan is? I heard that Wilson was going to wait until the end of the summer to decide so he can do his due dilligence and take his visits. I'm not sure about Carton

05/19/2018 - 6:23pm Also heard that Oregon is in the mix

Misread what he said

05/18/2018 - 3:48pm Take a look at this list

Take a look at this list of Elite 11 winners. The majority of them didn't amount to anything and didn't perform well in college. So winning the Elite 11 isn't that great

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elite_11

 

05/18/2018 - 3:43pm Oh yeah

His pocket collapses almost immediately and he still makes plays

05/18/2018 - 3:41pm He's got a BAD OL

I noticed from his game tape that his HS O line was terrible. The pocket would collapse almost immediately and he would still make plays with his feet, IQ and quick release. Give this kid a decent OL and he can be really good

05/18/2018 - 3:32pm It's a bit weird

But I don't exactly blame top RBs for not coming to Michigan. We don't exactly have great line or history of great RBs. However, I'm not too worried with the solid lower ranked guys that we've been able to find. With that said, a highly ranked RB would do a lot for our offense

05/18/2018 - 3:28pm I wouldn't call Hudson a "wilted head of broccoli"

I wouldn't call Hudson a "wilted head of broccoli." He was a high 3 star and freak athlete perfect for that position coming out of HS

05/18/2018 - 3:25pm Agreed

I think people are focusing too hard on the "right now," but not looking at what else he said

05/18/2018 - 3:23pm I thought that at first

I thought that at first, but the rest of his quote makes me think that we are all just over analyzing that last part. I'm not saying he won't flip, but the "right now" can easily just be a few words added to answer that he didn't mean and just said in the context of the interview

05/17/2018 - 1:33pm Questions

Can you elaborate why you think Jalen Wilson's drop was warranted and why Girard being in that ~150 range is appropriate? 

Also, while getting Carton and Wilson aren't definite at this point, in regards to Michigan looking at a 3rd guy, who do you think that could be? And do you think we have any chance with McDaniels?

05/17/2018 - 1:27pm Also

We'd have 3 spots if someone else besides Matthews also goes to the draft (Jordan Poole or maybe Iggy Brazdeikis) or someone trasnfers like you said (Eli Brooks seems like a possible candidate)

05/17/2018 - 1:21pm He took a huge jump
