Benzing To Michigan

It seemed like everyone was just waiting for this to become official, Robin Benzing has signed with Michigan. I have written lots about him the last week or so, make sure you check out this big post if you missed it. I think Benzing is going to play the four at Michigan and is the perfect skilled type of four man that Beilein loves. Benzing will enroll at Michigan this year but most likely sit out a year and then have 3 years to play because of eligibility rules with the NCAA. Here is what Beilein had to say on Benzing:

“With a lot of hard work, we feel Robin will be a valuable asset to the program,” said Beilein. “He is long, versatile, and at 6-10 has a high skill level. The recruitment of foreign players is a bit more complicated now than in the past. The NCAA’s current academic and amateur certification process may affect Robin’s initial eligibility to play at Michigan. We will follow the situation closely and hopefully know more as soon as possible.”

    Great news for the program. Let’s hope he can play this year even though it’s a long shot. Although a year in the weight room isn’t going to hurt from what I’ve seen.

    So how much hard work is “a lot”? Are we talking two years before he can contribute? Three? Anybody seen any video?

    I think he sits this year, then the following year backs DeShawn up at the four and then the following year starts. Maybe thats just what I hope though. I have not seen any video and Robin’s team was upset early in the big tournament over there which means it will probably be hard to find anything new.

    AWESOME!

    Thanks again Dylan for all your coverage. You are filling a vital gap for a lot of us.

    Who is the transfer that rivals is referring to, when they say he has interest in coming home? Is it the kid from St Johns?
