Vincent Edwards adds unofficial Michigan offer

on

Vince[1]Michigan offered its fifth prospect in the class of 2014 on Friday afternoon as John Beilein offered combo forward Vincent Edwards.

Beilein visited the 6-foot-7 Franklin, OH native in his school earlier today.

“It was a pretty good visit. They came and watched me work out. Coach Beilein said what he’s all about is graduating students,” Edwards said. “And he doesn’t just go around recruiting anybody, he recruits kids who he knows will do the work. He doesn’t want anybody who’s going to get in trouble, he wants kids who he knows will get good grades and play hard for him.”

Michigan’s offer won’t be official until he visits Michigan’s campus, which he said will most likely happen on Saturday, Oct 13, the date of the Illinois football game.

The Michigan offer brings Edwards’ current offer list to Xavier, Dayton, Purdue and Michigan. West Virginia has offered, but like Michigan it is expected Edwards will visit in order to make the offer official.

When asked if this offer affects Michigan’s place in his list of schools, Edwards replied, “Most definitely.”

“It’s a great place,” Edwards said. “The facilities are great. The atmosphere is great. Talking to coach Beilein and his staff, it seems like a great place.”

Michigan has also offered Devin Booker, Keita Bates-Diop, Trevon Bluiett and Jae’Sean Tate in the class of 2014.

    Offers starting to pour out to some good players – wonder how soon the first domino will fall. Staff also seems to clearly want a “big” in 2014 as well

    I like this “offer”. Edwards is a good player. Although I’m sure we’ll be fine in ’14, it’s funny I’m feeling better about our ’15 recruiting than our ’14 recruiting. I’m thinking once KBD sees the Michigan product this year as well as how one of our key players (Morgan) can succeed on the court and in the CoE, he’ll see the light!

    Regarding the ’15s, I like our chances with Kennard and it seems we’re in decent enough position with *several* PGs that I’m sure I’ll be happy with whoever we get. Similar to Derrick Walton.

      By the way, thanks for the NIT preview, Dylan!
