Today is the first day of the early signing period for the class of 2010. There are not expected to be any surprises as Evan Smotrycz and Tim Hardaway Jr. are both expected to sign. As has been reported for sometime, Trey Zeigler will not sign a letter of intent today, opting instead to wait until the spring signing period. Michigan, UCLA, and Central Michigan among others remain in strong position for his services.

    One of the many things I like about Coach Beilein is that we don’t have to worry about him chasing recruits like Royce White.

    Thank you…exactly.

  • Kevin Garnett competitiveness would have raised Maurice Taylor’s game. Along with Baston and Traylor it would’ve been an unbelievable front line. They might have put a banner in the rafters (only to have it removed).

    nice comments in yesterday’s chat from Bilas (

    how good will michigan be this year with manny harris, zack novak, and deshon (sic) sims. how far will they go in the tornament!!!!!!!!!!

    Very good. I think that Manny Harris and DeShawn Sims form perhaps the best one-two punch in the Big Ten, and Michigan has some shooters around them and a kid from Los Angeles named Darius Morris who can step in and play some point for John Beilein. It all comes down to how the Wolverines shoot the ball. If they make shots, they win. If they don’t, they lose. Pretty simple. This will be a solid NCAA team with Sims and Harris, and should play in the second weekend because of those two. GREAT kids, both of them.

    White could be suspended for either half or all of this season. Isn’t that what happened when AJ Price at UConn stole laptops?

    Is that a real pic with Garnett wearing the Michigan shirt? Is it 100% that he was committed to M if he could qualify? Or were we just in the lead?
