INTL - Wing - Franz Wagner


#42

Interesting fwiw Josh gershon in a chat was Asked about some of the top upcoming potential foreign college prospects and he listed him as a 2020.


#43

Yep, seems like he should be either 2019 or 2020. I don’t see how he’d be 2018.


#44

#45

He looks good in those videos. Kind of resembles Caris’ playing style.


#46

#47

#48

Based on what I have read and seen, seems to me that franz would be a top 50ish prospect if he was stateside.


#49

Geez get him off the the Caris LeVert HS diet. Looks like he’s been training with Ethiopian marathoners.
I think I meant Kenyan marathoners but the point stands


#50

Am I wrong in thinking that we have an available 2018 scholarship still? I would absolutely love it if Franz somehow ended up with it


#51

Yes. Michigan has a 2018 scholarship available.


#52

Mentions Butler and Michigan here. Says he could legitimately reclassify to 2018 if he wants but doesn’t sound likely


#53

If we want him, i’d try and get him in 2018 and redshirt him next year. I actually hope we do that.


#54

Only thing with taking him 2018 would be we probably recruit one less 2019 guy? So maybe we would go all in on Carton at that point.


#55

#56

Any sense on how high Michigan is on him? Did he come to AA at all, not sure I remember him being mentioned like his mother.


#57

I’d honestly be curious if the fanbase would rather have Franz or Carton if we only had 1 slot…hypothetical I know, but intriguing nonetheless!


#58

To me it depends on if Carton would project to be a significant upgrade to our list of PG’s? If yes I would prefer Carton if only one spot available.


#59

If Carton is a 1 & done and Franz is a three year with the potential to bring “Mo” wins and excitement I’d go with “Mo” Wagners in our system. Maybe Beate wants to see Final Fours for both sons.


#60

Carton is not a one and done


#61

Don’t sell JB short! :grin:
