Michigan Tuesday: Basketball School

The number 1 thing you will find on social media about Michigan right now is that U of M is now a basketball school.   Michigan has a former Fab 5 player leading it as its coach, which came out of one of the best run organizations in sports.   This staff is also recruiting its ass off!  Not to mention one of the best college basketball coach in the history of the program is now a professor in Ann Arbor.  

The latest example is 5 star Power Forward Moussa Diabate committed to Michigan in somewhat of a surprise commitment.  It's not that he picked Michigan that's the huge surprise,” Eric Bossi, 247Sports national basketball director, said Monday. “It's just that it happened a lot faster than anyone expected it would.” Diabate plays at IMG and is from France originally.   He is also a teammate of Jett Howard.  

Brian Snow from 24/7: “He can play all over the court,” Snow said. “You would hope he's got the ability to guard maybe a wing in a switch situation then a power forward and even a center given how big he is. I think that's where a lot of people look and are very excited about what he can do because he's got so much ability on that end of the floor.”

This is Michigan's 2nd 5 star commitment to the 2021 class in less then 2 weeks.  Michigan now has the #1 recruiting class in the nation.   Since that is such a shocking statement, I will repeat it:  Michigan has the #1 Recruiting Class in the Nation.  

5 Stars Caleb Houstan and Moussa will join 4 star guards Frankie Collins and Kobe Bufkin, 4 star wing Isaiah Barnes and 3 star forward Will Tschetter in this complete 2021 class.  

That is great Bob, still a long time until signing day! 

Early signing period starts tomorrow.  It will be interesting to see how many guys sign on the dotted line! Lets hope all of them!

Michigan has yet to release a 2020/21 schedule but the future looks very bright!! 

  • Great news keeps rolling in for the football team.  Hutchinson has broken his ankle which will need surgery and looks to be gone for the season.   Can't lose one of your best players on defense and hope to get that unit back on track.  

  • Oak Park's Rayshaun Benny DT picked MSU over Michigan as expected on Monday.  He was a lock to Michigan before the Wolverines lost to the Spartans two weeks ago. 

  • Michigan at Rutgers is a night game as well.

I guess Rashawn Benny didn't worry about that 49-0 shellacking by Iowa. If he did that this past Monday after the Iowa game he wasn't a lock to go to Michigan anyway.
