- Michigan will host its annual College Practice Camp this weekend and the expected visitor list continues to grow. Class of 2018 guard Cormac Ryan is one of the highlights along with OBC guard Dwayne Cohill. The Wolverines will also host Kevin Easley Jr., a dynamic combo forward who has been public about how much he wants a Michigan offer.
- One name that was expected for camp but won’t attend: class of 2018 forward Thomas Kithier. Kithier committed to Michigan State yesterday and is officially off the board. The Wolverines hadn’t offered Kithier, making it clear that they prefer East Lansing forward Brandon Johns (the only offer in 2018) at this juncture.
- It will be very interesting to see who earns the next 2018 offers from the Wolverines. Cormac Ryan seems like as good of a bet as any, but several other visitors could be in line for offers as well. With the College Practice Camp moved from June to August, this feels a lot more like the kick off of Michigan’s 2018 recruiting.
- MLive’s Brendan Quinn wrote a great piece of Michigan’s recruiting philosophy that’s worth a read. It touches on a number of points in the process including offers, evaluation and much more.
- DJ Wilson and Moritz Wagner are jumping higher this offseason. Wilson touched 12-foot-3, matching Glenn Robinson III’s mark, while Wagner reached 12-foot.
- Jalen Rose likes the stability of Michigan’s program, but thinks the program needs more McDonald’s All-Americans.
- Zak Irvin is the highest ranked player on Chad Ford’s big board, checking in at 80th nationally in his top-100.
