This isn’t a complete recruiting roundup and not meant to be all inclusive but here are some notes on a couple Michigan targets and commitments. I will also try to update the hotboards before the end of the holidays.
Evan Smotrycz (Commit)
For information on Evan Smotrycz’ early performances this year be sure to check out his diaries.
Tim Hardaway Jr. (Commit)
Tim Hardaway has put together a few very nice performances early on this year. Tim had a couple 40 point performances early on this year, most recently he scored 20 of his teams 49 points in a 58-49 loss to Columbus in the A-Rod Basketball Tournament.
Mount Pleasant lost to Mike Talley’s Melvindale ABT team thanks to Talley notching 40 points. Zeigler struggled a bit, playing injured, and scored 26 points in the loss.
The biggest change to Zeigler’s recruitment is that Duke has become involved. Michigan still remains in a good position along with the other schools that have been recruiting Zeigler for some time including UCLA, Michigan State, Oklahoma, among others.
The Grand Ledge senior has been playing very well early on. Most recently, Horford went for 23 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, and three blocks in a close loss to Holt. For more on that tournament, read this premium article. Horford also notched 28 points and 19 rebounds in a win over Howell.
Regarding his recruitment, it appears that Jon still has one school on top ($): Michigan. Michigan seems ready to take a big man (Horford) as well as Zeigler in the class of 2010 if they both want to come. Looking at the roster composition right now, it’s hard to fault a decision like this.
Carlton Brundidge (Commit)
Brundidge has not only been putting up consistent scoring numbers, he’s also been rebounding the ball extremely well. In an early season 69-64 win over Macomb Dakota, Brundidge scored 26 points and added 19 rebounds.
Amir Williams had 14 points in a blowout win over Gabriel Richard. He talks about his recruitment with GoSpartans.net here ($).
