Michigan Tuesday: Some Recruiting News Basketball and Football

With Michigan Basketball probably losing two players to the NBA draft, Coach B has to fill a few holes in the offense.   One option is William and Mary graduate transfer Justin Pierce.  Justin averaged 14.9 points per game and 8.9 rebounds this past season. He just visited ND last weekend and will get a chance to see Michigan this weekend. His decision could come after that.
Not sure if these guys are on the radar, but brothers Sam and Joey Hauser announced they are transferring from Marquette.  Sam is a 6-foot-8 junior that averaged 15.1 points, 7.2 boards and 2.3 assists this past season. Joey is a 6-foot-8 redshirt freshman that averaged 9.8 points and 5.2 boards. They both shot better than 40 percent from three this season.  These are Coach B type of players but would need a waiver to play next season.  No word yet, if Michigan is interested in the talented brothers.

Speaking of brothers, Franz Wagner is still out there if he decides to come to the US and recruit Harlond Beverly committed to Miami yesterday, so he is off the radar.

We know, Michigan got a 2020 de-commitment just as the Spring Game was ending.  Which is strange timing and pretty good sign the coaches wanted to go in another direction.

-Michigan is looking strong for the top QB in the 2021 class QB J.J. McCarthy from Illinois. J.J. says Jimmy told him that he is the Wolverines top priority for the 2021 class/
-Michigan also leads for 3 star 2020 Tennessee RB Jabari Small who visited last weekend.
-The Wolverines made the top 8 for 2020 DE Antwaun Powell who visited Ann Arbor in March. -Michigan also made the top 5 for Bay City WR 2020 three-star wide receiver Devell Washington.

Bob, you say "probably losing two players to NBA Draft". So you are expecting Iggy or Poole to return ? I was hearing likely both of these gone along w/ Matthews.

Retorts are poole isn't happy at Michigan due to how the fans were riding him. His family isn't happy either. He will either transfer or go to the NBA.
