Michigan Men's Basketball Recruiting

Here is where you can post info on the future of the men's basketball team. Things that may be included;

1. Recruiting announcements
2. Info on commits, recuits, visits, targeted players, etc.
3. Video clips or highlights
4. Really anything recruiting related

P.S. Anyone wondering why I created this, we don't really have bball updates in the recruiting thread. That seems like it's mainly football.

Derrick Walton - Class of 2013 senior highlights

Reminds me a lot of Burke with his handles, though not as smooth. Shot looks nice, can't dunk. Really fast.

Zak Irvin - 2013 Class. Not really a revealing highlight, but this is the reason I'm not worried about losing Tim. Of course, I hope he stays one more year, but Zak Irvin is the real deal.

Mark Donnal 2013 class - I can see this kid starting in place of GR3 at the 4 if he decides to leave school early. If not, he'd be a great guy to bring off the bench. Big guy that can rebound, play in the post, and step outside if needed. Pretty much the type of 4/5 that we need in this offense.

Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton to compete in 3pt shooting contest

Two of Michigan's future players are headed to the Final Four.

Sort of.

Michigan signees Derrick Walton (Chandler Park Academy) and Zak Irvin (Hamilton Southeastern, Ind.) will take part in the 2013 American Family Insurance High School Slam Dunk and 3-point Championships -- held in the Atlanta area on April 6, the Saturday of the Final Four.

The event will air at 2 p.m. from Greater Atlanta Christian School, and air live on CBS. This year's Final Four will be held in Atlanta.

Walton and Irvin -- both four-star prospects -- will both compete in the 3-point shooting competition.

The rest of the 3-point shootout roster includes: Bryce Alford -- La Cueva High School (Albuquerque, N.M.) -- New Mexico; Conner Frankamp -- North High School (Wichita, Kan.) -- Kansas; Brannen Greene -- Tift County High School (Tifton, Ga.) -- Kansas; Nick King -- East High School (Memphis, Tenn.) --Memphis; Race Parsons -- South Sevier High School (Monroe, Utah) -- Southern Utah; Matt Thomas -- Onalaska High School (Onalaska, Wis.) -- Iowa State.

Walton reminds me a lot of Burke in terms of handling the ball, but is Walton actually 6ft? He looks a little small, which could lead to problems guarding large point guards if we have Walton and Spike Albrecht at the point next year.

But he looks like a solid player who knows how to find the open man and has a pretty good-looking shot.

Looks like he has pretty good potential, but I think he needs to bulk up a bit to play down low in the Big Ten. Looks like he can get up and ESPN says he has good hands and feet, which is always key for big men. Should be a solid player.

Update on the recruiting rankings of the 2013 commits. ESPN, Rivals and 247 have recently updated theirs, I'm assuming these would be the final #'s?

ESPN
Irvin - 5*, #22
Walton - 4*, #30
Donnal - 4*, #89

Rivals
Irvin - 5*, #24
Walton - 4*, #37
Donnal - 4*, #111

Scout
Walton - 4*, #42
Irvin - 4*, #49
Donnal - 4*, #95

247
Irvin - 4*, #35
Walton - 4*, #67
Donnal - 3*, #149

As crazy as it sounds, and it looks kind of convenient for me to say so, but isn't ESPN considered the best around at ranking basketball recruits? This is what I've gathered around the net anyway.

How many 5 stars do they have? You'd think 30 would be awful close to 5 star status.
