@LosAngelesWolverine1 Right now I think MSU has a better chance at landing all three 2019s you mentioned. Of the three, I think Watts is the best chance for Michigan to nab. Michigan has made up ground with him in the past couple of months, as the staff seems to have put more effort into him than any other target I know of in 2019. It seems that Michigan has made Watts one of, if not the, top priority in that class. He has a ton of offers from good schools though so it is not going to simply be a in state battle, although I do think it will come down to those two personally. Watts has had a good start to the season, and the staff have been fairly frequent visitors in to workouts, practices and games so far this season.
Regarding Beverly, not much has changed. I know Michigan had at least one assistant at his game against Pershing, but I haven’t heard of them really being at anything else for him recently, and Beverly has not mentioned anything to me about them either. I would absolutely love to have Beverly at the SG spot at Michigan, but right now I do not see it unless the staff decides to offer and put more effort into him. Beverly did not impress against Pershing really. He had a great stat line of 20 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists, but probably had 4+ turnovers and struggled big time shooting from three. He airballed a wide open look and missed 3 or 4 other open threes. He did not make any in that game. The high turnovers and lack of a shot that game are two major flags for a Belein offense, so I cannot imagine that the coaches sent good word back regarding Beverly unfortunately. I think he is a better shooter than that game showed, but he has had a issue with turnovers in the past as well. Hopefully Michigan does go for Beverly harder still, but if not we will be fine.
Regarding Weems, I have heard nothing at all on him lately. Im not even sure if Michigan is even putting a lot of effort into him any more truth be told. Maybe they are but I haven’t heard anything. I think of the three in state 2019s, Weems is the least likely to land. He also seems like the strongest lock for MSU of the three to me, although I think all three would pick MSU as of now if they had to pick between one of the two in state schools. If I am Michigan, I would put all my efforts into Watts and Beverly if going for the in state 2019s at this point. I love Weems but he seems so unlikely to me now.
