Michigan offers four-star wing Romeo Weems

Dylan Burkhardt

Michigan extended a scholarship offer to New Haven wing Romeo Weems today. His high school coach tweeted news of the offer.

Weems is a four-star prospect, ranked 84th nationally by 247 Sports composite rankings. He also holds offers from Michigan State, Missouri, Ohio State and others.

Weems joins Taylor Currie, who committed to Michigan yesterday, and Mark ‘Rocket’ Watts as junior prospects with early offers.

He’s currently in Argentina with USA Basketball’s U16 team at the FIBA Americas U16 Championship. He scored 2 points, grabbed 6 rebounds, dished 4 assists and picked up four steals in a win over Puerto Rico on Wednesday.

Here’s footage of Weems from this spring on the Nike EYBL 16U circuit:

    Weems is one of the big fish in 2019.

    He looks all around good. Very versatile. The clip doesn’t show a lot of 3-pointers but it has everything else. Athletic, good slasher, good bounce and body control. He’s a natural. Kind of a hybrid of Zak and GRIII.

    What I see on the video (and I may be–and hope–completely off base and agree that he’s a big fish and excellent pickup for Michigan in any event), is a very young man with great leaping, shot blocking skills, good court awareness, quick hands,a developing handle who is able to dominate because of his size and skills compared to the people he played against. He much prefers to go inside, but on occasion, if he is properly set up and decides to shoot a three for some reason, he can show excellent form (to me), but I was a little uncomfortable with the reference to Zak Irvin because Zak was known on too many occasions to launch an off-balance–or out of form for reason, deep three from the top of the key that was rarely the most effective choice available even if he had time to try to find something better. He definitely knew better, but, for some reason, he just couldn’t help himself. Not saying he wasn’t a great addition to Michigan Basketball hindered by injuries and a stellar young man. He was, but just being candid. I also think that he has shown more handle and slashing ability than GRIII at a similar age, less 3 point potential, and has yet to prove that he can become the gritty, defensive, willing and able to guard a taller, stronger 4 inside and out that GRIII showed at Michigan. Weems may have have all of this, but it’s not on the video.
