Michigan offers 2015 wing Luke Kennard

Dylan Burkhardt

061512[2]UM Hoops has confirmed that John Beilein offered a scholarship to class of 2015 wing Luke Kennard this afternoon.

Kennard, a 6-foot-5 lefty from Franklin, Ohio, has been one of the top recruits on Michigan’s recruiting board for the past two seasons. He’s the first Michigan target in the class of 2015 to report an offer on June 15th, the first day that the Wolverines extend scholarship offers to rising juniors.

Kennard was the star of Michigan’s last two team camps and John Beilein and his staff have followed him closely on the AAU circuit this spring and with his Franklin high school team over the past two seasons. The wing guard is ranked in the top-35 nationally by both ESPN, Scout and Rivals.

Kennard also holds offers from Ohio State, Xavier, West Virginia, Indiana, Dayton, Clemson, Notre Dame, Purdue, Wisconsin and Cincinnati. He also visited North Carolina, who has also been tracking him this spring. Kennard is expected to visit Michigan again in late June when his high school team plays at Michigan’s Team Camp.

Stay tuned to UM Hoops for more on Kennard and other Michigan targets in the coming hours.

    Is there any indication of who leads for Kennard?

    • Michigan is in a good spot. We’ll hopefully have reaction soon.

    I was thinking Kennard might be the one candidate to react like Hatch & Donnal did. Michigan has been recruiting him for such a long time and he would be a great fit. He also seemed to really like it in A2.
    Well, maybe he’ll commit after dinner….

      unlike hatch and donnal, i think kennard has a lot of options, like osu, etc. not that i’m not excited about mark, i think he’ll be outstanding, but the early commit from mark/austin definitely had something to do wtih a lack of interest from other big time colleges. in kennard’s case, he’s getting big time interest, and anything from him will take time.

        Mark and Austin wanted Michigan. Michigan offered they accepted. If they’d wanted interest from other colleges they still had two years to get it. Their first choice offered so they said yes, nothing wrong with knowing your mind.

  • Also a note for you guys. Jalen Coleman is at Adidas Nations today, so tough to offer him during an event although contact is now open. Will be something to follow.

    Matta took KBD and Tate from us. It’s time to return the favor!

      Indeed. 2015 will hopefully be a class we can exact some recruiting revenge against OSU.
