Michigan Basketball Transfer News

Kelvin Grady has decided to leave the Michigan Basketball program. This doesn't come as a big surprise since Kelvin was benched for most of the second half of the season after losing his starting role due to what Coach Beilein thought was poor defensive play. BHB Perspective: I'm mixed on this transfer, Kelvin showed speed and flashes of greatness but also couldn't finish and the last two shots I remember him taking were really bad 3 point air balls. With the Senior guards leaving the program, I thought Kelvin had a nice shot of running the point next year, but he has decided to pack it in for another program. Over his career in Ann Arbor, Kelvin played in 64 games, averaged 4.9 points, 2.3 assists, and 1.6 rebounds per game. Does this give Laval Lucas Perry a chance to run the point? Or will that go to one of the incoming freshmen?

This also gives Michigan another scholarship for next year which could help the 2009-10 class. I hear a few top recruits from Memphis might have re-opened their recruitment recently.

  • Devin Gardner will announce tomorrow (Friday) at 2:00 at Inkster High School. Don't be surprised if he puts on a block M hat.

  • Rich Rod's coaching clinic this weekend is expected to have about 600 coaches

  • The College Football Hall of Fame is opening a Michigan - Ohio State Rivalry exhibit.

  • The Big Ten Network will provide expanded coverage for Michigan's Spring Game on April 11th.

  • A football movie is looking for extras in Flint. Here's your chance to get discovered.

  • Some 2010 U of M recruits from the State of Michigan shine at the Badger Sports/ passing camp: On Michigan verbal Jeremy Jackson: Said Edwards, "(Jackson) is a huge kid. He has very good size and great hands. He knows how to use his body well to box people out. He understands offenses and creates enough separation. He's a great kid. Detroit Cass Tech corner Dior Mathis, Detroit Renaissance corner Mylan Hicks and Livonia Stevenson athlete Austin White lined up in the secondary, and all three boosted their stock significantly. Many believe Dior's size of 5"8 is too small to play corner at a major program (he has offers from Michigan, Miami, and others): "Everybody was talking about how short he is, and usually when I see a 5-8 corner I say the same thing," Jeremy Jackson admitted. "That was what threw me off. Everyone was like, 'I can get him!' But watch Dior play. Not many people beat Dior that day. As a matter of fact, I don't think anyone did, (except) for one time. He's a real good corner." "He has great makeup speed and is one of the quickest players we had," added Team Michigan's defensive coach, Detroit Southeastern assistant Archie Collins. "He can turn on his acceleration quickly to make up sometimes. He was baiting people to make sure they throw to his side."
