Hello Steven Pledger

Steven PledgerSteven Pledger is a new name that is firmly on the national recruiting radar after a big time performance at Boo Williams this weekend. Pledger exploded for 24 points in his biggest game and apparently shot the ball very well. The good news is that Michigan seemingly has been on Pledger for a while as he is already listing Michigan. The bad news is that Steven is firmly in the national spotlight now with his big performance at Boo Williams. Pledger is described as a lights out shooter but also seems to play mostly off the ball. When looking at Michigan’s roster composition I think we need a point guard. Regardless Pledger is one to watch over the summer.

Saturday Night:

Pledger has been the biggest guard surprise in the entire 17 and under field and had his big moment on the big stage. The 6-foot-4* guard scored 24 points and hit big three-pointer after big three-pointer.

School List:

Pledger, the night’s star in the Boo Williams-NY Gaucho game, said Oklahoma, Michigan, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Hampton, Virginia Commonwealth and George Mason comprise of his early school list.

Pledger’s hometown Boo Williams team rolled on to win the tournament. Rivals on Pledger in the finals:

Continuing his great play was emerging guard Steven Pledger, who scored 15 points in the game. The 6-foot-4* guard did a great job in the spotlight and should see his recruitment blow up this week.

*Note: Steven is 6-4 190 pounds contrary to what Rivals listed.

    I Pledger Legion’s, to the flag, of the United Wolverines of Beilein, and to the program, for which it stands, one team, inside Crisler, with plenty of three’s for all.

    lol…very nice jdub…very nice!
    once again we will see the ability of JB’s recruiting! Can he reel in recruits who have schools like oklhaoma, wake, and other programs with bball tradition and what not??? I really think that if you look at JB’s “system” it still is very up and down and somewhat freewheeling, so I would hope that UM looks appealing to some of these guys! Because if we are going to see UM be very competetive in conference and in the tourney, than we are going to need a guy or two who is very highly sought after! A top 25 recruit! Eventual NBAer if you will!

    We like JB’s system, we watched him at Richmond and West Va. He is a very good coach and we think we would do well under him.

  • Thats great to hear you guys watched him at Richmond and West Virginia. I can then assume that you know JB is one of the top coaches in the nation and would make Steven the best ball player and person he could be. Go Blue
