Looking at the 2020 roster…
C: C. Castleton(Jr.) —
PF: B. Johns(Jr.) —
SF: I. Livers(Sr.)-??? — C. Bajema(So.)-???
SG: A. Nunez(Jr.) —
PG: D. DeJulius(Jr.) — E. Brooks(Sr.)-???
-Livers could go pro?
-Brooks could grad-transfer?
-Bajema could de-commit?
There could be as few as 4/13 scholarships accounted for.
CG Zeb Jackson (4*/#59ovr). Seems to be 100% on board still, so long as we still are. Seems like an outstanding prospect.
F Scottie Barnes (5*/#4ovr). Just 2 CB’s on his 247 profile, 1 to Oregon and 1 to Syracuse (which is no longer in his top 8). Reports interest in Oregon, Duke, UK, KU, FSU, Miami, OSU and Cal. Seems pretty open. Haven’t talked seriously about someone like this since Jaylen Brown. But, HS teammate of Juwan’s sons’. Seems pretty damn realistic to me.
SF Cade Cunningham (5*/#7ovr). Not a teammate of Juwan’s sons’, but a Florida prospect, and one who previously had high interest in Michigan. Seems to be favoring UK at this point, but perhaps Juwan could make a big impact?
PF Isaiah Jackson (5*/#14ovr). Ohio native seems to be favoring MSU at the moment. Had UofM in his top-4 (along w MSU, Zona and Louisville)… before we hired arguably the best big man coach in basketball. Show him some tape of all of Jarren Jackson Jr.'s 10min of playing time in his last game as a Spartan! Not to mention that Izzo is almost surely retiring after this yr. Seems quite realistic to me.
C Walker Kessler (5*/#16ovr). GA native seems to be favoring UGA at the moment. Also had UofM in his top-4 (along w UGA, Duke and UVA)… before we hired arguably the best big man coach in basketball. Might be a tough fight, but I DEFINITELY wouldn’t call it a pipe dream or anything.
CG Nimari Burnett (5*/#23ovr). Chicago native. Has already publicly expressed Howard interest. No publicly stated favorites at this time.
PG Adam Miller (4*/#24ovr). Another Chicago native. An AAU teammate of Howard’s son. Has a rather weak top-4 of Kansas/Louisville/Illinois/ASU.
Should be room for the less heralded Zaire Wade and Jace Howard as well.
Gonna be fun!
