Scout.com released their updated class of 2011 rankings and there are a number of Michigan targets included. Here are the relevant names:
- #50 – Carlton Brundidge (commitment)
- #23 – Cody Zeller
- #31 – Amir Williams
- #32 – Marshall Plumlee
Not many surprises here. Carlton is ranked as a solid four star which seems to be about right. I don’t think he’ll ever be a true 5-star because he’s not some kind of athletic freak. But on the other hand, he scores against the best of them so he’s in no danger of dropping.
The chances of Cody Zeller attending Michigan are slim to none but Amir Williams and Marshall Plumlee are rated about equally. Amir Williams remains wide open and Marshall Plumlee has yet to trim his list as well.

It was a busy weekend on the AAU circuit with major tournaments in Houston and Bloomington. We didn’t make it out on the road but here’s our best attempt to wrap up the weekend in recruiting. Possibly the most interesting nugget is that a European prospect has appeared on Michigan’s recruiting radar. (Everything after the jump.)

The 2010 class has grown steadily throughout the winter and spring. Michigan has now signed four players for the class of 2010: Evan Smotrycz, Tim Hardaway Jr., Jon Horford, and Colton Christian. Jordan Morgan and Blake McLimans are also going to be freshmen this year after redshirting which brings the count of new players to six.
The larger class has caused some alarm among Michigan fans who wonder “how will we ever sign all of those great players in the class of 2011? 2012? 2013? 2025?” On paper there is now only 1 scholarship remaining in the class of 2011 which means that Michigan could technically bring in only one more player alongside Carlton Brundidge. At this point I expect Michigan to continue recruiting with the intention that they will add two more to the class of 2011.
