Michigan had a big weekend on the football field with a win over Notre Dame on Saturday but it was an important hoops visit weekend as well.

Kameron Chatman and Donte Grantham both made it into town for their official visits.

Jalen Brunson, Jalen Coleman both made it into town. The class of 2015 guards are two of the three prospects that the Wolverines have offered in the class thus far. Class of 2015 guard Eric Davis also made the trip down from Saginaw.

Although class of 2016 stars Derryck Thornton Jr. and Tyus Battle didn’t make it to Ann Arbor due to scheduling issues but a pair of highly regarded ’16 prospects still amde the trip. Cassius Winston and TJ Leaf, both top-50 players in their class, made the trip to Ann Arbor.

Michigan also welcomed back Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr. and the rest of last year’s team to be honored on the field during the game. After the jump find a rundown of visit reactions, tweets, pictures and notes from the weekend that was. We’ll have more on all of the recruiting action in the hours and days to come.

Kameron Chatman

Chatman’s visit to Ann Arbor went very well. Arizona and Oregon are serious contenders for Chatman’s services but Michigan has made a strong push. The fact that the Chatmans made the trip from the West Coast for their June visit shows that the interest is serious. Chatman and his father tweeted throughout the visit covering everything from on the field, to dinner the night before and car service to the airport.

Car service just arrived....Kameron taking his parents off to Michigan for his 1st official visit! #ThanksSon #Blessed #TheChatmans

“Car service just arrived….Kameron taking his parents off to Michigan for his 1st official visit!”

Go Blue!
Dinner is Served! #SpoilsOfLife

“Dinner is Served”

Welcome to the Big House! #GoBlue

“Welcome to the Big House!”

His father also hinted that there could be a change in the original schedule, which was to take all five official visits.

Jalen Brunson

Brunson made the trip up from Chicago for the football game and was hosted by Spike Albrecht. He tweeted that he enjoyed the visit and posted a Vine from the field.

Other Notes

Jalen Coleman visited Michigan State last weekend and was offered a scholarship last week. TJ Leaf made a recent trip to Indiana before his Michigan visit. Tom Crean offered a scholarship and Leaf said it would be “hard to say no to Indiana”. Devin Booker visited Michigan State officially over the weekend and is already in Kentucky for his next official visit. Michigan has visit No. 3 which is scheduled for October 5th.

    Grantham is about 6’6″, not 6’8″. Probably a 3/4 like GRIII. If Chatman is thinking about changing the visit schedule, could be good news.

  • Northern Blue

    From what I can tell, Kameron’s dad would really like him to go to Michigan. He might be the most important piece to this class…. looks taller and longer than Grantham in that pic and will probably end up playing a lot of 4 for Mich if he chooses to go there.

    Need a versatile guy like him to go with all our shooters. Hope the hint of maybe no more possible visits comes true and he commits right now.

  • DingoBlue

    Definitely some encouraging news on Chatman. I take it we don’t know if Grantham got an offer at this point? I’d still really like to snag Bolden in this class, but that’s a longer timeline.

    • Tyrell

      I want Bolden in Michigan too!

  • BlimpyBlue

    Don’t be fooled by who looks taller in that picture, the angle the shot was taking at clearly impacts the perspective and you can’t assume everybody is standing straight up. If players were all the size they appear to be in that picture before accounting for perspective or slouching, then Stauskas and Chatman would both be taller than McGary, and Grantham would only be a couple inches shorter than McGary.

    Fun!
