In Depth Scouting: Mitch McGary


Depending on who you talk to, Mitch McGary is the best big man and the second or third best player in the class of 2012. Despite his lofty ranking, the second most popular question that I’ve heard this fall (after “will Michigan get McGary?”) is just how good is he really? A ranking is one thing, but what does he bring to the table at the next level.

On the eve of McGary’s announcement – scheduled for Thursday at 5 p.m. on ESPNU – we take a closer look at McGary’s strengths and weaknesses from the summer circuit. There’s endless highlight and scouting video of McGary out there on the internet but here’s our first hand impressions of McGary as well as some quality hand selected reports from other outlets this summer.

What I really like about Michigan is its coaching staff, especially Bacari Alexander. He’s probably one of the most underrated coaches in the country. He really knows what he’s doing with the big men.

I just like that I can trust the coaches there, and I actually like that they’re not on the biggest stage yet. That gives me the opportunity to go there and make a huge impact from day one.

A con for Michigan is that the Big Ten has a reputation for being a slow paced conference with slow big men who don’t really get out and run the floor at all. That’s not the way that I want to play so I’ve definitely got to take that into consideration. I know that if I went there it would help change the perceptions a lot.
