The Hoop Group has a great update on the Fall Jam Fest, an annual tournament which includes teams from across the northeast. There were quite a few Michigan targets in attendence including a few we have heard plenty about and a few who have been a little off the radar.Â
You can’t talk Michigan east-coast recruiting without Nate Lubick. Lubick’s New England Playaz team was in attendence at the Jam Fest however his play was restricted by an early ankle injury. Â When talking schools Lubick listedÂ Georgetown, Michigan Virginia, Stanford, and Wake Forest as the ones “coming on him the hardest”.
The most interesting quote for me is that when asked if Lubick had a “dream school” he answeredÂ Â â€œnot really“, of course he doesn’t say who but Lubick has been rumored a Michigan lean for a while now… The 2010 power forward is due on campus for the upcoming Wisconsin game.Â
He doesn’t force shots, knows when to push tempo and protects the ball with his life. Newcomers will take notice of his range from the permiter, but followers will notice his mid-range game is great. A bonifide shooter, Ayers reads defenses well and comes off screens with a vengance.
One more note, the hot board is being redesigned and will be back this week including a complete hot board for the 2010 class.
