Do you prefer Bacon over Luke Kennard?
Just imagine a class of:
Luke Kennard/Dwayne Bacon
Stephen Zimmerman (probably a bit of a pipedream)
I don't think it should be either/or between those two. They're too talented (i.e. multi-positional/versatile players).
For instance, I've repeatedly advocated an offer to AJ Turner because of his ability to play the 1, 2, and 3 spots.
Likewise, I want both Bacon and Kennard because they are triple-threats who don't need to dominate the ball to be effective.

Turner will probably have to be redshirted though if his weight is anywhere close to what it says on his 247sports profile. That is fine though, we finally have good depth now.
Then again, I said the same thing about Levert, so who knows.
We also don't follow other school's recruiting closely
Another good video that shows Bacon's ability. This is from the middle of last year and Bacon has clearly improved from back then.
Dwayne is a 6'6" PG with offers from Baylor, FSU, Virginia Tech. He plays travel ball with the Showtime Ballers out of Orlando.
Trevon Buiett. Dude's gonna be a BOSS.
A white SF, how is Duke not in on this guy.
I mean, we are probably going to have 4 scholarships each in the '14 and '15 classes, right? Somewhere around there. Should be able to pull in some MIGHTY FINE talent...while also losing a bunch. 'Tis the world of college sports though, lol.
We're at eleven now and Morgan is out of eligibility after 2013-14. So that's a minimum of three open spots for the 2014 class. If both McGary and Robinson also leave, we would have room for five in 2014.
Which...I'm going to go out on a limb and say they are both gone after their sophomore seasons, lol.
Corey Sanders is a bad MOFO. His highlight video is off the charts. I am fired up. It will be fun to see which PG
grabs the U-M scholarship, when offers go out for the 2015 class ? & who does Beilein offer first ? Or does he offer multiple players, Sedrick Barefield, Hyron Edwards and Corey Sanders on June 15 and make it first come, first serve ? If you put a gun to my head I am partial to Barefield but Sanders is a human highlight film and if Corey helps with Bacon-- I could be swayed.

I have only one concern about Corey Sanders...his highlight videos show very little passing.
Is he an undersized scoring guard (like Russ Smith of Louisville) or did he not have as many opportunities to create for his teammates?
By comparison, Bacon (his teammate) shows a lot of passing ability in his tapes.
Michigan draws Duke in the Big 10/ACC Challenge.
Game will be played at Duke.
Good. F Duke!
This will be a good early test for this team at Duke. Through in the Arizona game and they have a pretty solid OOC schedule.
I like that umhoops shows the makes and the misses.
http://www.umhoops.com / Trevon Bluiett has 20 scholarship offers and is one of the top scorers in the class of 2014. Michigan, Butler, Indiana are some of the top schools to offer him a scholarship.
Looney's perimeter skills are a work in progress.
He looks like a PF that's trying to become a SF.
http://www.umhoops.com / Kevon Looney is ranked in the top ten of Class of 2014 and is hearing from Duke, Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Florida and others.

He looks good. McGary/GR3 hybrid.
Is Michigan recruiting him yet?
I think Michigan is interested in him but the coaches have yet to offer.
Interesting note on Edwards Michigan may offer come June.
Derrick Walton taking an A-O and dunking, like omg....
