No Fucking Way

I was ready to write this post about the excitement of Michigan picking up their 3rd verbal commitment for the 07 Class in DE/TE Ryan VanBergen until MGoBlog had to post this: Alex Legion: Panic. Alex Legion is the highest rated recruit to commit to Michigan basketball in a long time and it was rumored he would be transferring from Country Day to Oak Hill Academy but I remember reading somewhere his coach/guardian say that as long as Coach Amaker was around he was going to be a Wolverine.

For Wolverine fans that have followed basketball recruiting the past few years this is too similar to the commitment and de-commitment of Joe Crawford and Al Horford who ended up at Kentucky and Florida, respectively. The other fucked up part about it is that this could end up like the Crawford situation where we lose out on other targets because of the his initial commitment, in this case Durrell Summers and Kalin Lucas who committed to Michigan State after the commitment by Legion. Not the news I needed to hear today but I guess we'll have to move on without him. He does have the coach/guardian situation which has a lot of people worried so it could be the best. Not sure if re-opening means Michigan is completely eliminated or still has a chance we will have to wait and see.

  • Rumor seems to be he might take a four year visit out to LA and play for the Bruins. I doubt he's even still considering Michigan (it would be suicide if he just dropped them completely), but I just want him to stay the fuck away from UConn.

  • As sad as it is to say I can see why he would want to re-open. It sucks and hopefully he changes his mind but I don't think he will. I can understand why he would want to go to UCLA instead, did you see their dance team?
