Thursday Notes & Links: Reggie Cameron visit canceled
As first reported by Sam Webb, 2013 forward Reggie Cameron won’t visit Michigan this weekend. Cameron was originally scheduled to take an official visit for the UMass game but confirmed via text message that the visit is off. John Beilein watched Cameron workout in New Jersey earlier this week and Cameron’s canceled visit could spell the end of Michigan’s 2013 recruiting as the board is lacking prospects with serious mutual interest. Expect Michigan head coach John Beilein to put the full court press on high priority 2014 targets Devin Booker, Keita Bates-Diop, Jae’Sean Tate and Trevon Bluiett.
Despite Cameron’s canceled visit, Michigan still has an impressive group of 2015 visitors expected in Ann Arbor this weekend. Jordan Ash (unofficial, story), Chandler White (unofficial) and Justin Greason (unofficial) are all expected to make the trip.
Inside the Huddle with Tim Hardaway Jr. – “On whom he sees rising as leaders … “Zack (Novak) and I have always been very close. He gave me a lot of advice and showed me the ropes on how to be a good leader. When I was being recruited, he coached me. Building that relationship with him, seeing him and being able to follow in his footsteps would be great. We don’t know who the leader will be yet; we are trying to figure that out. Whoever the leader is, we are going to stand behind them one hundred percent, it doesn’t matter who that is.”
Inside the Huddle with Matt Vogrich – “My team goal is to try to win another Big Ten championship. Personally, I want to get my three-point percentage above 40. I’ve been shooting a ton whenever I get the chance. I had a disappointing year three-point shooting-wise from my standards. I am trying to do whatever I can to make sure that this team can count on me.”
