NBADraft.net is impressed with Zak Irvin, who will decide shortly between Michigan and Butler: “An assistant coach that I sat with during this game told me to keep my eye on Irvin and I was not disappointed. Irvin is young, long and talented. He has a great game off the bounce and has a frame that will get bigger and stronger. He displayed a nice jumpshot out to three and mixed in a couple of beautiful step back jumpers at a pro level. He is still a puppy in his development and that is the scary thing. A large number of Big Ten schools attended f his game Tuesday afternoon and with good reason. This kid has a chance to be special and should be ranked in the top 30 at least in 2013 “
