Nice to have depth in the front court. We have a TON in the back court.

Who knows, maybe Larry Nance Jr. will still come as a preferred walk-on? I'm sure his dad still has money so maybe a scholarship isn't so important?

It'd be great to have Nance Jr., but this may end up being a "if you snooze, you lose" situation for him. I think you're right about his dad having the dough to send him to Michigan as a preferred walk on. He could do that for a year, then wait for a scholly.

Can kids of former NBA ballers go anywhere but Michigan?

Good question, Seattle. If Nance comes aboard, it could start a trend.

I wonder if Shaq has any HS age sons?

I'd prefer not...... unless they are David Wood's kids.

Somebody pointed out on umhoops message board that Jordan Morgan was graded a 75/100 on ESPN and Bielfeldt grades out as a 87/100.

Here are some more insights from ESPN and umhoops.com

Quote:
ESPN has a complete scouting report:

Strengths: This strong high energy power forward never takes a possession off. Bielfeldt runs the floor on a consistent basis and simply out works opposing post for easy baskets. In the low post he scores with good touch and crafty moves. Bielfeldt is a below the rim finisher that can also face and knock down mid range and open three with needed time and space. He can drive from the high post as well. Bielfeldt is a good passer and active rebounder on both ends. He could be affective in both pick and pop or role situations. Bielfeldt won’t wow you with athletic ability but will with his consistent production.

Weaknesses: Bielfeldt must work on attempting to improve his explosiveness he is an average athlete at best. And although his is strong he must continue to add strength in order to continue to hold his own in the low post.

Bottom Line: Bielfeldt is a skilled power forward that rebounds on both ends and plays with great energy and urgency on every possession. His is limited athletically but is consistently productive because of his all business approach on the floor where he simply out works opponents with passion for the game.
Quote:
Bottom Line

John Beilein is methodical, cautious and secretive on the recruiting trail. He always watches a recruit in person before extending an offer and generally requires a campus visit before making that offer official. Like it or not, that’s how Beilein recruits. The second twist is that Beilein prefers to keep his recruiting philosophies relatively silent, trusting his talent evaluation over almost everyone else. One thing that’s become clear during Beilein’s tenure in Ann Arbor is that he prefers production over talent.

There’s no questioning Bielfeldt’s production, as he had one of the most impressive statistical seasons in the state of Illinois. The questions surround his height and athleticism. Bielfeldt is listed at 6-foot-8 but those that have watched him extensively tell us that 6-foot-7 is more accurate. Bielfeldt has lost weight but still has a big body that is ready to bang in the Big Ten. He appears to be an undersized five that could play some four down the road.

The one thing that Bielfeldt appears to provide that no one else on the Michigan roster does is low post scoring. He’s not the biggest guy but he’s someone that knows what to do with the ball in his hands on the block. As mentioned, Bielfeldt is the third commitment in Michigan’s 2011 class and fills the last remaining scholarship for the class. You can find a full scholarship breakdown here.

I like what I'm reading about Bielfeldt.

If he doesn't work out well in basketball, he can go see Brady Hoke about playing TE/DE.

It was on a podcast with the assistant coaches.

I forget which part they mention it in but I think it's closer to the end:

I didn't realize we had another scholly available? I thought Bielfeldt took the last one.

Bielfeldt is in this year's class. Stauskas is committed for next year's class.

Aha ... I didn't realize that.

There's a report in the Detroit Snooze that Darius Morris is considering a jump to the NBA. I can't see him being drafted, but you never know.

Wow, that was quick. Kansas had also offered Stauskas so he's held in pretty good regard.

He and Glenn Robinson III make up our recruting class for next year unless somebody leaves early or transfers.

I guess it's time to start cracking on 2013!
