Class of 2016 Pickerington Central (Ohio) wing Ibi Watson is one of the fastest rising prospects on Michigan’s recruiting board.
John Beilein has been tracking him over the first two weeks of the July evaluation period and he recently added a scholarship offer from Indiana. Watson spoke highly of Michigan and Caris LeVert last week and the junior could be on the cusp of a Wolverine offer if he continues his steady play.
“I just love the coach staff there (at Michigan),” he said. “It’s like a family environment there. The facilities are great and I feel like I would be a great fit for their system as well as Indiana’s. Both of them are great places. Offer wise, I think they might have been waiting for Tyus Battle to recommit because some people were thinking he might go back to Michigan, but this morning he committed to Syracuse.
