How many 5 stars do they have? You'd think 30 would be awful close to 5 star status.
Zak Irvin is the last 5 star on ESPN. Ranked #22 with a scout grade of 91.

Walton has a scout grade of 89 which is tied with the #23 ranked recruit.

That seems to be the general feeling these days.

How nice is it to bring in two consensus top 50 recruits and not have to rely on them to lead the team right out of the gate. That was a nice luxury to have this year with Robinson and McGary, and should be again next year.

Burke had the same issue of being small, but was an amazing on ball defender. That is hard to come by for a guy his size though. So his size will be a factor, but at the same time, bigger point guards will have a tough time staying on Walton. True point guards like him are hard to come by.

did you guys recently offer Jaylen Johnson? I thought he didn't have an offer from Michigan but some sites are showing him with an offer now.

According to this, no. This site is usually pretty accurate with this sort of thing

"Michigan has four outstanding offers in the class to Devin Booker, Kameron Chatman, Trevon Bluiett and Vince Edwards."

Devin Booker lists Michigan in his top 5 along with MSU.

"Top five- Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan St. & Missouri," Booker tweeted. "No order."

Damn, I thought things would work out with Trevon Bluiett after we dodged a bullet and Butler didn't hire Jordan as their coach, but it looks like another coaching hire made the difference as he's following his old high school coach to UCLA.

Michigan did just offer James Blackmon, a recent IU decommit, as he visited over the weekend. He's yet another guy UM is targeting out of the state of Indiana and plays on the Spiece AAU team. A 6'3" guard that's top 50 across the board...looks like Kentucky will be tough to beat here.
