1137432[1]First reported by Kyle Bogenschutz, Michigan extended a scholarship offer to class of 2014 forward DJ Wilson this weekend during his official visit to Michigan.

Wilson holds offers from Columbia, Gonzaga, USC, Cal and Nevada among others. He took official visits to Gonzaga and Columbia over the last two weeks. The Sacramento native is a prototypical stretch four man with great length, a smooth three-point stroke and above-average ball skills. Read our full film evaluation of Wilson here. Wilson is the consensus No. 162 player in the country according to 247 Sports.

Michigan holds commitments from Kameron Chatman, Ricky Doyle and Austin Hatch in the class of 2014. The Wolverines have outstanding offers to wing guards James Blackmon Jr and Devin Booker. Booker is on campus this weekend for his official visit while Blackmon visited Michigan officially last weekend.

    looks like we will get his commitment sunday morning before he gos back home

    If DJ commits – – think we would only sign 1 more? First of Blackmon/Booker. Or do we take 2 of Blackmon/Booker/Bolden?

    • Rob

      will sign 4 in early signing period. that is the plan.

      If we have attrition and/or Bolden’s academics/test score lines up in a good way, then we could add him in the spring, but the chances are still pretty high that this class will be 4 guys in the end.’

      Not sure the coaches want to hamstring themselves for 2015 class by signing 5, excluding Hatch. Bolden looks very, very good but something to be said for roster balance as well.

      I trust the coaches to make the right moves.

        I like your last sentence there. Recently there has been too much criticizing of recruits. Especially when you consider that there is a staff who won a big ten championship with two players in the starting line up that bascically no one else offered at D1 level. Its pretty clear that coach B and staff know what theyre doing, and for people to openly criticize a recruit that Coach B offers and wants to have as part of the program in a place where the recruit can see the comments is not a good look in my opinion. Im sure coach B would like to pick and choose a bunch of recruits out of the top 50 but it doesnt always work that way when you are running a program with integrity. You have to take the best you can get, and you remember they are just teenagers that worked their tail off to get to where they are and i personally think as long as they represent the team and university well, they deserve some positive support. They aren’t professionals getting paid millions of dollars, they are student athletes figuring out their lives. I love this place to come talk hoops because almost every poster is very supportive of the team with a positve outlook on the contributions of the players and staff. AND the great content is second to none.

        We should redshirt Wilson. I am personally, higher on Bolden than Coleman. Do we really need another guard if we get Blackmon Jr or Booker? We should use the scholarship in 15′ for a big man.

      I think if more than one of those guys wants to come, Michigan might accommodate them.

    • A2JD

      I’m guessing they might take two if two want to come.

      • A2JD

        Sorry, my first reply wasn’t showing up on my screen.

    hatch is going to on a med ship.

    • Rob

      Rick,
      Can someone sign LOI and go right onto a med schollie. Or does he have to enroll and spend a semester or a school year on reg scholle first?

      This is such a unique case, I wonder what the rules say about it?
