Wolverine Wednesday: A Bird In The Hand

Michigan Basketball news dominated the day as PG Cassius Winston decided he was no longer considering Michigan and was down to MSU, Pitt and Stanford. That news came as a shock to many Michigan fans as we thought he was a very strong candidate to Go Blue.

Then a few hours later it all made sense as 4 star PG Xavier Simpson committed to the Wolverines. He is 5'11 and 165 pounds from Lima, OH. He was going to announce between Illinois, Miami, Iowa State, and Wisconsin, when he made a surprise pick for the Wolverines.

It's hard to know what happened for sure, but it seems the Michigan coaches got tired of waiting for Cassius and took a commitment from Xavier. 

Side Note: It's a crime that Xavier is not playing for his home state school Xavier! :-)

Xavier joins Watson, Teske, and Davis in the 2016 class.  More info at UMHoops
