A Quick Update with Ray Lee

Ray Lee is one of the top 2012 guard prospects in the state of Michigan and he’s backed his ranking up with his play this spring. Here’s a quick update on his recruitment from the IPS Great Lakes Classic:

We will have plenty more from the event over the next few days.

    just wondering, but since this is the same set of questions did you (Dylan) ask the questions? It is nice to see that he is only going to UM camp right now…I hope we get him but he;s so good I just don't see it happening. Optimism tho…

    Joe is at the Great Lakes Classic all weekend. He's the one asking the questions.

  • Brian W

    Is it June 15 when U-M will start offering guys in the 2012 class? I'm pretty sure I've seen a date in June when U-M was supposedly going to offer Javontae Hawkins. Maybe Ray Lee will get an offer at the same time?

    Joe's video shooting style makes it feel you're there interviewing a player; it's sorta Blair Witch meets U-M recruiting. :)

    I don't know if someone has already linked this, Kevin Pangos inteview. U-M mentioned in his top 3 schools.

    Good find. Pangos seems like a good kid. Doesn't sound like he'll be a camper since he's got other things on his plate. Beilein's recruiting some good point guards for 2012. Ferrell, Pangos, and Lee can all play at a high level.

    Joe's doing a great job on the videos too. My comment was intended as a compliment.

  • Bluebufoon

    Brian– have you run across any video of Pangos playing ? I hear everyone bragging on him but I don't think I've seen him play ?

    Gonzaga basketball board (I frequent) has Pangos listed with the class of 2011 and I think I read another article where the Father (Pangos) said his son was going to be part of the class of 2011.

    We are definitely headed in the right direction. Dylan and now Joe..thanks for all your efforts with the site eventhough I may not most as much as the others I do go on multiple times a day and appreciate all the great work. Below is a very good interview of the Tim Hardaways and most of all you get to see what a nice good kid Tim Jr. is. Enjoy all and Go Blue.

    I had no luck finding video of him. It appears that there had been a video on YouTube at one point of a game that he was in, but it got removed. I tried some places in Candada also without any luck…

    Marshall Plumlee and Cody Zeller are in Las Vegas this weekend for the Addidas Nations training camp.

    Is Lee that good? I thought we wanted Pangos and Yogi Ferrell more than Lee. I remember Sam on a recruiting roundup saying that Lee kept switching schools and it is making a bad impression on his recruiting. Just asking the question. Maybe Lee is better than previously reported.

  • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan

    The switching schools thing is a valid point but Lee is still a big time talent. All the transfers have kept him off the court during high school ball but that doesn't mean he can't play. It will be interesting to see where his recruitment goes. A lot of 2012 kids have question marks but the radar is also still a lot wider for 2012.

  • Billiam

    just a random thought on Hardaway but seeing how skinny his face is I just don't see him gaining much weight. I don't know why, or even if it's logical, but I think that people with skinny faces have that skinny build that makes it hard to gain weight.

    that interview was from a long time ago……….i have seen pictures of him and i would say he is pretty similar in size to darius …………he will be college ready when the season starts nothing like vogrich was

  • Bluebufoon

    For the questions about Ray Lee, if you watched his video from U-M's summer camp from a year ago, there would be no doubt this young man is a big time player. Fundamentally solid, scores taking the ball to the hole and is money with his jump-shot. Plus he handles the ball well enough to play PG, but ideally I would think he is better suited to play the two guard.

    I don't think U-M is going to have near enough scholarships over the next two years for all of the top flight talent in the Midwest and at St. Mark's.

    this kid is a better fit for us than Yogi Ferrell I wish we had game film from the REACH game where he destroyed Kearney for almost 30, and topped it off with an embarrassing left hand tomohawk dunk over Jalen Reynolds.
    This kid is a must grab!

    phil_me use must be smoking on something bad. Lee did not do anything vs kearney. He did not check kearney and vice versa.Reach beat Lee's team by 15. Lee played the best ive seen him play but kearney had about 18pts,Reynolds had 18 and Lee had 16 including the slam your talking about.Dont get on hear and lie.Lee cant hold kearney or Reynolds jock strap.lol
