More on Watts, Smith

Justin Watts’ name has serviced recently of late, and Michigan has seen him play. Rivals posted this article
($) about his recruitment and it seems like he would be a good fit for UM. A wing that can score and score a lot seems like a definite fit. WRAL had this report on Watts from his loss to Taft and UNC commit Larry Drew earlier today:

Jordan’s Justin Watts wanted to remind everyone that he is still capable of playing. In addition to hammering home several slam dunks, Watts put up 24 points – the only Falcon to score in double digits.

Eric Lacy also has the latest on Jerret Smith, an interview with his father who claims to know of no glaring academic problems. Beilein would not have suspended Smith for academics if there were no problems, however it seems pretty clear that there is more to this than the grades. Bottom line is Beilein wants his point guard to be a leader on the court, in the classroom and on the practice floor. Just my opinion but I think there is going to have to be some major compromise to get Jerret back on the team. (Lacy also wrote a good piece on Michigan’s struggles and where they go from here).
