2019 Recruiting Notes


#978

Yeah, we started to recruit Tremont Waters and quickly learned he was not recruitable.


#979

Yep, he was the Director of Operations Beilein’s last few years at WVU and then followed him as an assistant to UM. He still has a decent relationship with Coach Beilein but he didn’t want to leave.


#980

So JB thinks someone else is leaving besides Mathews. There are obvious choices, but the easy one is Davis. He keeps losing minutes. Who knows.


#981

Or Iggy is going pro.


#982

Guessing Mahoney was pushed out, I was always surprised of it too. Seemed like jb reset his staff for recruiting reasons but Mahoney seemed to really get after it on the recruiting trail and was jbs best recruiter on his first staff.He had um as a factor for some very good prospects like Casey Prather, Klay Thompson, and Kawhi Leonard (never was reported but Mahoney claimed last year um was in his top group). I specifically remember Prather saying how Mahoney sent him a hand written letter pretty much every day. He also landed Darius Morris and Tim hardaway.


#983

I actually kinda like their team this year.


#984

Per an insider on 247, sounds like Poole is taking a lot longer look at going pro and getting some nice vibes from NBA teams…


#985

Dot posts here too.


#986

Apologies if I missed this and this is old news, but Jalen Wilson is up to #32 on the 247 2019s list. He’s at #46 on the composite.

Quinones is #75 on 247, but #64 on the composite.


#987

Pretty impressive that Bajema is up to 60 on the composite, too!


#988

Wonder if Michigan kicks the tires with this scoring combo guard.


#989

Current list of officials looks like he wanted to stay pretty close to home. Also, it wouldnt surprise me to see him follow the coach (similar to Kyle Young: Butler --> OSU). Guessing that he wont lack for suitors at this stage of the game and would be interested as well to see if Michigan is one of them


#990

Yeah I’m sure he will be a hot commodity and sounds like his HS coach may be hosting an open gym for coaches next week.


#991

Yaklich started following this guy today or last night


#992

He played AAU on City Rocks with Joe Girard and Isaiah Stewart


#993

Didn’t realize he was a Nebraska decom. Also is that ‘Evaluation’ section of 247 new? Because I think that’s a really cool idea for them to do.


#994

I’m wondering if Michigan would try to take a crack at Chris Harris, the recent Virginia Tech commit. 6’3 combo guard who had a Duke offer. He may well follow Buzz to Texas A&M but if not he’d be a high level player to target that could make a instant impact.


#995

Isn’t it Anthony Harris?


#996

Believe that Anthony Harris decommitted from Virginia Tech and Chris Harris decommitted from Texas A&M.


#997

Yeah sorry I was thinking of two different players and talking to someone else and combined the names lol
