2018 Recruiting Notes


#1319

#1320

Mattd tweeted Bingham killed it at team camp and we are showing interest. Don’t know much about him myself but he’s top hundred. He’s a pf right?_


#1321

Brian Snow said that he thinks Johns will wrap up his recruitment before the July evaluation period. He doesn’t even make a guess on where he’s going.


#1322

Per umbig11, he’s going blue.


#1323

I’ll take Marcus Bingham, Johns, and Nance easily.


#1324

If the current 247 composite rankings hold, a class of Dejulius, Johns, Nance, Ignas, and Locke would be 10th in the country and 1st in the Big Ten in 2017 and 11th and 2nd in 2016.


#1325

I think we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves with the 5-man class stuff. Wagner first has to go all-in on the draft and that’s not necessarily a done deal. Even if he did, the 5th would have to be a Spring signee.


#1326

If Johns were to commit, any chance that impacts Nance’s decision? Is there really a chance we take 3 forwards?


#1327

Iggy and Hunter can easily play the three. Johns could maaaybe. Though I think he’s probably strictly a four. Nance would probably be in for. RS and be more ready to contribute in year 2 or 3 much like Wilson.


#1328

If Nance is a 4, will we take a 5 in 2018. Or wait until 2019? We could be down to just two 5s in 2018 and zero by 2020.


#1329

Already have Currie in 2019 class so I don’t think a 5 is a huge priority in 2018.


#1330

Presuming a Johns commit is coming, it’s kind of exciting that we have a string of in-state commits coming this way. Livers, DeJulius, Johns, Currie. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think the 2018 class would be the first in a decade with 2 commits from MI.


#1331

Kudos definitely deserved for Saddi Washington.


#1332

Re: the 5 – Teske in 16, Davis with RS 17 eligibility, Currie in 19, with Nance as a small ball option in 18, seems pretty reasonable.


#1333

If the staff feels good about their chances with Nance and Johns, how do you think that would impact the pursuit of Hunter Tyson? I know he plays a different position but spots would then be limited and supposedly (at least according to Sam Webb this morning), Jerome Hunter is the top target on the board.


#1334

So, you see Currie as a 5 at UM, not a 4?


#1335

Yes, that’s correct.


#1336

I bet Currie grows at least another inch and a half. That would put him at a legit 6’10" or 6’11". No reason not to play the 5, especially in JB’s system


#1337

At NBPA he was 6’7.5" right? The staff Views Currie as a 5 though, that’s a viable college center but not really that big?


#1338

6-7.5 with no shoes at the end of his sophomore year. He’s a five all the way in my book. Doesn’t play like a four in Michigan’s offense at all.
