The Fort Wayne News-Sentinel published a feature story on Canterbury’s Austin Hatch today. Hatch averaged 23.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game as a sophomore while guiding Canterbury to at 17-5 record. Reporting his measurables at 6-foot-6 and 214 pounds, Hatch has begun to draw interest from numerous college programs including Michigan, Purdue, Notre Dame, Indiana, Illinois and Virginia. Michigan appears to be the preliminary leader in his recruitment:
“Michigan is probably No. 1 right now,” he said. “They’ve shown the most interest in me, and I’m most interested in them, especially with their academics. Coach Beilein is a great coach, and they have a great group of guys and a great coaching staff.”

Michigan won’t extend offers to sophomore prospects until June 15th but Hatch appears to be one of several 2013 wing prospects in that class which could receive an offer. Some of those other wing prospects on the Michigan radar include Zak Irvin, Steven Haney, James Young, Bo Zeigler and EC Matthews.
