Notebook: Expected Campers, Tim Hardaway Jr. and More

Dylan Burkhardt

Michigan will host its 2011 College Practice Camp this Saturday which will feature a number of the top prospects on the Michigan radar, especially in the class of 2013. The timing couldn’t be better as the Michigan coaching staff will hand out the first batch of 2013 offers four days later on June 15th.

Per NCAA rules, the camp is not invite only but we’ve confirmed that the following prospects intend to make it to Ann Arbor this weekend:

Guards: Demetrius Jackson, Derrick Walton, Monte Morris, Jalen James
Wings: Zak Irvin, VJ Beachem, Malcolm Hill, Austin Hatch, Steve Haney Jr.
Bigs: Mark Donnal

This is far from an exhaustive list but it’s also a who’s who of the class of 2013 recruiting primers that we’ve been publishing.

We have several other notes after the jump, including fresh Glenn Robinson III highlights and notes on Tim Hardaway Jr.’s summer workouts.

Glenn Robinson III Highlights

We’ve posted plenty of Glenn Robinson III video this spring but came across this YouTube clip containing more spring highlights from the top-100 Michigan commitment:

Tim Hardaway Jr.’s Summer Workouts

We’ve seen plenty of Trey Burke’s workout footage and a feature story about Matt Vogrich’s summer regimen but we haven’t heard much about Tim Hardaway Jr.’s time back in Miami. Fear no more, Michigan’s leading returning scorer appears to have been putting in plenty of hard work with professional trainer Ed Downs. A quick google search reveals that Downs has worked with several NBA players including Baron Davis, Penny Hardaway, Jamal Mashburn, Alonzo Mourning and even Lamar Woodley.

This is obviously just the warm-up for the big event on Hardaway’s summer schedule: the USA U19 National Team tryouts in Colorado Springs. The tryouts run from June 17th through 24th and if Hardaway makes the squad he’ll travel to Latvia from June 30th through July 10th.

    Looks like the reports of GRIII’s ups were no fluke. They are on display with all the jams in that highlight video.

    scary to think what GRIII could become…pleasantly suprised with the form on his shot as well…pretty high release, good follow-through and good elevation on the shot

    Is this the most talent that JB has ever had attend UM’s camp?  

  • Brian_W_97

    An article about Malcolm Hill.  It also mentions that a teammate, sophomore Darreon Reddick, is getting some interest from Michigan.

    Impressive group of attendees, it would be nice to evaluate them when they play on the same court.

    Anyone have a guess on how many of the attendees listed get a commitable offer on the 15th?  I would guess we offer Donnal, two point guards and two wings and it will be interesting to see how the coaches prioritize the offers.

      I know NCAA guidelines fluctuate but will filming of the camp be allowed ? What type of access does the media get to tomorrow’s camp ? Its great to see the growth of Coach Beilein’s camps and its importance to U-M recruiting. How many commitments does U-M get before the end of June– three or four ?

      BTW I believe I read Bo Zeigler will be attendance tomorrow.
