    But, yes. Kyrie was better as a freshman, although it was a smaller sample size for Kyrie. 🤬

    Hurley whined more his freshman year than half the dean dome, and it was all his facial expressions on tv. The coaches showed him a composite video of his actions and that pretty much cured him! Brilliant tactic.

    Kind of curious why we would want a 4-star power forward to reclassify when we already have Coleman and Brakefield coming in, not to mention Johnson.

    We need another center. Mark Williams is the only recruited player on the current 2020-21 roster taller than 6'8".

    Bediako is a 6'11" Canadian center with long arms, very different player than Brakefield (6'8") or Coleman (6'6"). The depth certainly wouldn't hurt, and he's supposedly developing very quickly.

    This is a guess, but I don't think Coach K would offer him right now unless he believes that Bediako may turn out to be a much better player than his current ranking would indicate.

    I believe I'm right that when Mark Williams signed he said he's going to now help recruit Hunter Dickinson.

    I loved hearing that attitude.

    Even he recognizes that we need another big guy to push Williams in practice and give us another option on the interior taller than 6'8".

    According to my go-to Michigan fansite, mgoblog.com, Dickinson could be deciding soon. The scuttlebutt is Michigan and Florida State are his top two, but he's been very quiet about his recruiting so it could still be anyone's game.

    Top-40 center Hunter Dickinson is still very much a priority for the Wolverine staff. Originally expected to commit in November but hold off on putting pen to paper, the DeMatha Catholic senior now appears ready to pull the trigger in the near future via his quotes to Corey Evans.

    “The reason why I didn’t sign early is because, if I did sign, it would have been a rush. I think giving it another few weeks was really beneficial for me and now I feel like I am pretty close to a decision,” Dickinson said before plotting a timetable for his commitment. “I am hoping within the month.”

    One can’t help but to see Dickinson’s response concerning Michigan in that piece as favorable. My sources tell me this is still a Michigan/Florida State battle and the Wolverines are on solid ground. The Crystal Ball and Future Forecast still heavily favor Michigan for what its worth.

    Could this be one of those times where the "close-to-the-vest" recruitment ends up breaking in our favor, surprisingly?

    It wouldn’t shock me. Honestly, the way Duke is using Vernon and Michigan (and Juwan Howard) is using Jon Teske, both places have to look pretty damn enticing for a throw-back, back to the basket big.

    My feeling is the longer Dickinson takes to commit, the more likely K is swooping in.

    Hunter Dickinson and DeMatha played on ESPNU last night. During the telecast, the announcers noted that Dickinson will make his college choice next week. Adam Zagoria has the story as well as some quotes from the young man. Zagoria texted with Dickinson after the game and confirmed that he does indeed plan on committing next week.

    Not an impressive performance by Dickinson, but Montverde is astoundingly deep this year. If they can share minutes effectively it could be another championship for Kevin Boyle.

    I don’t think this has been mentioned yet, according to Twitter Dickinson is announcing next week. Michigan, Duke, Notre Dame, and FSU are the four on his list (in no particular order).
