    I feel like we did utilized his skills (shot-blocking) to the fullest potential.

    It’d be great to see Benzing commit in the next few days, but actually getting Morris into town while Ann Arbor is in full summer swing would be a pretty good idea. I hope Brown isn’t falling through the cracks. A talented big man who has an eye for UM hasn’t happened in a while.

    Watch Udoh’s production drop. That would be interesting.

  • Aaron

    question, will he redshirt, or is he going to have to sit a year out and only have one year left…..either way its a dumb move for him IMO

  • Musket Rebellion


    I think he’ll have to sit a year and then have 3 years left, at least if I’ve read everything Dylan has written correctly. He has played professionally over seas so he has to sit out a year before he can be considered an “amateur” athlete again. At least that’s how I view it. I think the year off for him could be huge. He could lift weights (with eeeeeee Mike Barwis if he is doing the S&C for the bball team too) and learn Beilein’s system for a year before being asked to step on a competitive court.

    But I agree with you, if he has to come over and sit for a year and only gets a year of eligibility out of it then it is a stupid move.

  • Udoh will red shirt and have two to play.

    Benzing will sit a year and have 3 to play (most likely).

  • Musket Rebellion

    Thanks for the clarification Dylan.

  • joe s

    is there any chance Benzing gets a chance to play as soon as he gets on campus???? or no

  • I suppose there is a chance but based on the NCAA’s recent history of rulings I wouldn’t bet on it. I guess anything is possible though?

  • Adam

    Are you sure Dylan? I am almost certain that Udoh will not get a redshirt for this year. When you transfer they don’t let you use the year that you are required to sit out for a redshirt. He will sit out his junior year, and will have one year to play with his new squad as a senior.

    Adam: I think Dylan’s right on this one, though like you, I’m not 100% certain in my position.

  • Adam

    okay yeah dylan is right. I just looked up the ncaa transfer rules and it appears he is correct. thanks for the clarification!

  • jBdub

    It’s official. Benzing has signed! Now we’ll have to see about eligibility.
