Lost in the excitement of Mitch McGary’s commitment yesterday is the fact that Michigan fans will have their first opportunity to see the 2011-12 Wolverines in action this evening. With exactly one week until the season opener, Michigan welcomes Wayne State to the newly renovated confines of Crisler Arena. The exhibition match-up doesn’t count in the record books but it’s the first chance to see the team that we’ve discussed for the past six or seven months.

Recapping Mitch McGary’s Commitment

Michigan’s signing of the nation’s No. 2 recruit, Mitch McGary, prompted us to look back at some of Michigan’s top signings over the last 20 years. McGary is among the best of the bunch, but how will his career at Michigan compare to some of those previous highly touted Michigan prospects.

Chris Webber – #1, Class of 1991 – Webber was the #1 recruit in the nation coming out of high school and one of the most dominant prep players of the last 20 years. He was dominant at the college level with the Fab Five, being named an All-American and leading Michigan to back-to-back National Championship appearances. However, his story comes with a catch. There’s the time-out call against North Carolina in 1992 and of course the infamous Ed Martin scandal that scarred Michigan basketball for years.
