Michigan offers 2014 wing Trevon Bluiett

4759131[1]John Beilein and his Michigan coaching staff extended their third scholarship offer to a class of 2014 prospect on Monday afternoon as 2014 wing Trevon Bluiett received a Wovlerine offer while on an unofficial visit in Ann Arbor.

Bluiett’s father and AAU coach, Reynardo Bluiett, confirmed news of the offer to UM Hoops.

Bluiett, a 6-foot-5 wing scorer, holds offers from Butler, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas State, Louisville, Notre Dame, Purdue, Virginia and Xavier. Bluiett is rated a 4-star prospect by Scout.com and Rivals.com.

Michigan has also offered Moss Point (Miss.) guard Devin Booker and Normal (Ill.) combo  forward Keita Bates-Diop in the class of 2014.

    I think this will push Bates-Diop a little. However, a commitment from Bluiett would be really nice. Kid has a good offer sheet. Then you have to hope he adds an inch or two.

      I think its more likely to push Booker than KBD.

      • Adam

        I doubt it pushes anyone because Michigan will likely have room for all 3 if they wanted to come.. nobody will really be pushed until someone commits

        • Allen

          Even at 6’5″, Bluiett will be a SF and that is clearly what KBD is slated to play primarily. While I think taking both would be acceptable on our end, it won’t be for them. We will NOT get them both. Unless KBD turns into a PF with his length by adding another inch and some weight, it will be the first to commit.

          • DingoBlue

            I see Booker as a 2 (6’4″ish), Bluiett as a 3 (6’5″) and KBD as a tweener 4/3 (6’7″) I don’t see any problem with taking all three honestly, we’d just be short on center depth.

            Center depth: Horford and Donnal (assuming McGary is gone just to be safe) – pretty good.

            And Bielfeldt could play inside, as well.

          • Steve2081

            I guarantee you we want KBD to play the 4. He might play a little at the 3 too but we want him because of his ability to play inside or outside.

          • geoffclarke

            Agree…even with his slight build, at 6’7″ with a LONG wingspan, he’ll match up fine defensively against most college 4s, BUT will be a match up problem going the other way for them. Advantage Michigan.

    Dylan,

    What is goin on with Reggie Cameron. He is seeing a lot of exposure. Any interest either way right now? Really quiet on that front. I think we need to add another versatile wing in the 13 class.

  • Wayman Britt

    With the next level taking some of our players, we will have room for all three. This trio needs to forget about Mizzou, Purdue and IU and join the Wolverine family.

    Drake Harris deciding on Wednesday and plans on playing both football and basketball. Although he had a good football camp at UM last week, his decision is coming off of a weekend of playing hoops at the Izzo Shootout so I don’t think the timing is ideal. Signs seem to point to MSU on this one.

    If football is more important to him I feel good about it, but since I’ve heard that his heart lies with basketball I see him picking MSU (UM hasn’t even offered him yet in bball).

      I know he had a good experience at Michigan camp but he also hasn’t taken a hoops unofficial to Michigan as far as I know. Given the timing of this announcement right after the Izzo shootout… You can see why Webb, Wiltfong, others are “guessing” MSU. Makes sense.

      • SamGoBlue

        Yeah, it seems to be pointing to MSU. If he chooses basketball there, as I’ve said before, I really will not be all that disappointed, I just don’t think he is a great basketball prospect. Football, on the other hand, could be scary.

    • Guest

      He’s pretty much all MSU regardless of JB offering him or not.

    Bluiett is another tall wing player that can score the ball and rebound. I like the 3 offers we’ve given for 2014. Hope we snatch one up soon

  • YpsiTuckyBoy

    Reminds me of Lavell Blanchard. Not great at any one thing, but pretty good at most. Finds a way to score, rebounds pretty well, not particularly fast, but pretty smart.

    • TKWolverine

      Good comparison.

    • Indiana_Matt

      I remember Lavell Blanchard more fondly than that.
