Michigan Monday: Hunter In and a Win!
Michigan Basketball got their big man they were looking for when 7 footer Hunter Dickinson committed to the Wolverines on Friday.   He is a consensus 4 star and ranked pretty much in the mid 30's by every service.

Hunter is a back-to-the-basket prospect that hasn't been in Ann Arbor for many years.  He also has a very nice mid range jump shot.   I love these type of players because they cause a ton of problem on defense and a perfect compliant to any 3 point shooting team.   For those that don't remember, Juwan Howard had an automatic low post game when the Fab 5 needed a bucket.   My hope is Hunter that is guy for future Wolverine teams.

Michigan also got an easy win over Presbyterian on Saturday.  The news of note was Livers got hurt early in game on strange dunk attempt.  The injury seems to be in the groin area.   Hopefully, he can rest up over the holidays and it won't be an issue for Big Ten play.   Michigan does host UMass Lowell on the 29th.  

Continuing the good basketball vibes, 4 star forward Terrance Williams who just de-committed from Georgetown is planning on visiting for the UMass game.  Williams and Dickinson played on the same AAU team and are friends.    There is also a twitter rumor about a potential transfer that could be joining Juwan Howard's squad as well.

  • FAU is a Harbaugh coaching tree farm!  Willie Taggart is the new head coach and he just hired Jim Leavitt as his DC this weekend.  FAU also won it's bowl game over the weekend.   

  • PFF ranked all 80 college bowl QB's by pro potential :  Shea came in at #23.   Above him was Eastern Michigan's QB Mike Glass at #21. 

  • TE Nick Eubanks is undecided if he will return to the team next season or try the NFL. 

  • Bryan Mone got promoted up from the practice squad and played in yesterday Seahawks game.  He had one tackle and one personal foul for a late hit on the QB.

The rating of Patterson is about right... Hope he does have a career in NFL... but might be a working stiff (like the rest of us ) , in a few years.
