Wednesday is Decision Day for Trey Zeigler

image

Update (4/13 @ 7:15): Drew Ellis of the Sun was able to confirm that Zeigler is headed to CMU. The Detroit News is also reporting that Isaiah Sykes will make an official visit to Michigan this weekend.

Update (4/13 @ 6:51 PM): Reports originating on The Wolverine ($) that Zeigler will commit to Central Michigan tomorrow have spread like wildfire across the internet.

So much for those previous reports of a decision next week. Tomorrow is the day according to Trey’s twitter (pictured above). ESPNU’s Signing Day Special airs at 4:00 pm according to ESPN’s TV guide so that’s when I would expect we need to be tuning in.

Zeigler’s top five schools (alphabetical order) are Arizona State, Central Michigan, Michigan, Michigan State, and UCLA.

    Can't help thinking this means CMU, coming hot on the heels of his father's extension.

    That's obviously just conjecture, but it's my first reaction.

    Also conjecture but the counterargument to that is that now that the ink is dry on Ernie's contract… Trey can go anywhere and know his dad has four years left.

    But this argument could also help UCLA, MSU, ASU. Just an idea that's been floated around.

  • BeileinsBricks

    Agreed. Definitely seems like CMU, although hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

  • JLC21

    A valid point. Thanks.

  • MusketRebellion

    I've got a bad feeling about this one. Make me eat crow, Trey. Make me eat crow.

  • umhoopsreader

    wow…right smack dab on signing day, at least we won't have to wait…let the rumors swirl – Hope He is Blue tomorrow!

  • Brick93

    Last second flight to UCLA or ASU? I don't think so. He's staying in state for sure. Hope it's the good guys but I'm guessing CMU.

  • BlueBulls

    Is it safe to assume that UCLA and ASU are out of the running if he going to be signing AT school?

  • ATLblue

    Glad he isn't dragging this out any longer. Michigan needs to move on if he doesn't sign and focus strongly on either developing Vogrich or Hardaway.

  • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan

    I don't think it'll be Arizona State because he did not visit. I don't see any reason that UCLA would be out though.

  • Swolv

    Well, I guess Isiah Sykes does not have to wait much longer to find out his college destination.

    Is it a fait accompli that if we do not land Trey we will immediately target Sykes?

  • umhoopsreader

    Dylan… where do you think Ray McCallum is leaning… UofD?

  • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan

    There have been tons of rumors that McCallum is UofD bound so that's what I expect. He's also announcing tomorrow

  • Evan

    Finally this thing is winding up. Hopefully Trey makes the right decision and goes to um

  • SamGoBlue

    I heard from an unnamed source close to both Zeigler and McCallum last week that McCallum will NOT go to Detroit and is only mentioning it to give his dad's school some exposure and that Zeigler will “probably” go to CMU. I thought McCallum to UofD was all but a done deal, but I guess we'll see tomorrow just how reliable my sources are.

  • troy0605

    I got the tweet myself dylan. Just hope its good news for us, now I will be waiting to hear Sam Webb's gut feeling tomorrow morning

  • http://twitter.com/TJrob0605 Troy J Robinson

    I think so unless Belien has someone under the radar we dnt know about

  • YpsiTuckyBoy

    Sorry, and not to be rude, but it's pretty clear at this point that peoples' “sources” know right around jack squat.

  • http://twitter.com/TJrob0605 Troy J Robinson

    Anyway possible that Ray and Trey announcing tommorow on espnu could mean some kind of package deal for a school

  • SamGoBlue

    Oh, I'm not saying that this is what is going to happen for sure. I just thought I'd throw what I heard into the fire as well, just to say “I told you so” in the unlikely case that it happens.

  • jblair52

    I think it's down to CMU vs. Michigan

    I've heard Michigan looks good right now – great school, Zeiglers really like Beilein, great exposure and early PT, still “near” home, and Trey is supposedly dating Jordan Dumars' sister…who happens to be on her way to UofM like her big brother.

    CMU's extension to EZ only helps us. He's got a solid job now.

  • jblair52

    Also, why would Trey be so intent on extinguishing the rumors about him heading to CMU?

    I mean, his family knows what he's doing. He knows what he's doing. The only thing would be that HE wants to announce it and doesnt want people to know…but…it's not like CMU would be a shocker anyway.

    Michigan though…well…

  • michigan hoops 4eva

    Here's my analysis: I think the only 3 schools it could be are Michigan, UCLA, and CMU.

    ASU is out because he canceled his trip there.
    MSU is out because he didn't wait for Durrell Summers' decision (scholarship issue)

    I think it's up in the air; Trey himself said he hasn't made any indication of which way he's leaning, and the people who really know aren't the ones telling everybody. Everybody's saying CMU based on a bandwagon effect, I think it could be any of the 3: mich, ucla, or cmu

  • http://twitter.com/TJrob0605 Troy J Robinson

    To your point rivals' sources say he's going to CMU

  • Sullycu

    I'm just wondering when “Thrusday” is…

  • MGoTweeter

    thewolverine.com reporting Zeigler is going to CMU. Not good.

  • YpsiTuckyBoy

    Just like Drew Ellis knew he was pushing the decision to next week? I doubt they know…

  • Brian W

    I'd tend to believe the Wolverine on this one. The four-year extension means that he could play for his Dad throughout his entire college career (unless his Dad got fired).

  • JB01

    rivals reports trey's going to central, i think it's pretty certain at this point.

    reasons this is a mistake
    1. the MAC is bad. once in a while a team makes the sweet 16, but they're bad regardless.
    2. no offense to ernie, but izzo, howland, and beilein are way better coaches, plus trey's already received his dad's coaching for his whole life.

    by the way, this completely screwed us out of kearney…

  • JB01

    think miss dumars will find a michigan man? i hear devin gardner is looking good this spring.

  • Billiam

    I'm still not sure about the Sykes thing. Any rumors/interesting view points on this? I personally don't think we'll take Sykes if we don't get Zeg. But I still think that UCLA is out just because they only got big when his dad might have gone there to asst. coach, and he's not doing that any more. I do agree with JB01 tho. Imagine him as a recruiting haul, and then next year CB and Williams. That's 3 top 40 recruits in two years, to go with 2 more top 100. That, and Belein's success with only bad recruits two years ago, really makes me excited if we land Zeg. Imagine his Junior Campaign….

  • maxwells_demon

    I'm gonna be pretty disappointed if three big time Detroit recruits all end up staying in-state, going to different schools, and we couldn't land one.

  • jblair52

    who are the 3 “detroit” big-time recruits?

    Appling? He's been gift-wrapped to MSU for a long time

    Zeigler? He's not from Detroit…and he's going to play for his FATHER

    McCallum? Hardly your typical “Detroit” kid since he's really from Indiana via Oklahoma as he's moved around due to his dad coaching…and if he stays in-state…it'd also be for his FATHER

  • kainkitizen

    If Trey does commit to CMU, Brandon Kearney was all about playing at Michigan until Brundidge commited to us. Does Kearney decommit and takes Trey's scholarship here at Michigan? Hmmmm??? I said that the recruiting would get very interesting and sure enough, it has. I like the possible Georgia Mr. Basketball recruit Marcus Thornton. Brent Petway was from Georgia. We do have a Georgia connection there.

    Already discussed with family and avg. 24 points a game in high school last year. Should help CMU's chances at being a top 25 team.
