Crump Planning Visit to Ann Arbor

Dylan Burkhardt

According to his AAU coach, Givon Crump (PF/SF 2009) plans to officially visit Michigan in September.

Crump has already taken unofficial visits to Maryland and Rutgers, but he still plans to take officials in September to Michigan and Oregon State, said his AAU coach Mark Matthew of AZ Pump ’n’ Run.

His coach also talks about his defensive abilities:

“I think he’s an underrated defender,” Matthew said in a phone interview. “He can defend a two (shooting guard) to a four (power forward). I think he’s an underrated athlete. He’s more explosive than people think. He’s bouncy off one feet, he’s bouncy off two.

And has a top list of schools:

Michigan, Oregon State, Rutgers, Wake Forest, Maryland, DePaul, South Florida, Cal and Southern Methodist.

Getting Crump on campus would be a big step in his recruitment. He has already visited Maryland (no offer) and Rutgers unofficially and plans to make a decision after his September visits. Read more about Givon Crump.

    This is Great news!

    Good news, and I think Beilein has let the Crump circle know that he is our #1 Target for 09. Hopefully we can wrap this one up in a month or so

  • Thankfully he’s said he wants to make it official by September, so his wait shouldn’t be half as traumatic as Morris’ was.

    Any word on the rumor of free student tickets for this season?

    On tickets, just a rumor at this point ;). We’ll get confirmation on a decision within a few weeks. Things like this take a long time to become official within the athletic department, and they often get “cold feet” and can turn on a decision.

    But, I will say that it was Coach Beileins’ idea and he was the driving force behind getting free tickets for students this year, so if they want a happy coach, then they will have free tickets.

    I want free tickets :/ Curse this whole “aging” thing!
