2009 Recruiting Class

Michigan kicked off the early signing period by receiving 4 letters of intent. The 2009 recruiting class is a good one and fills many of the needs the team has. Here are the commits:

Darius Morris: 6-4 PG, from Los Angeles, California
Blake McLimans: 6-10 F, from Hamburg, New York
Jordan Morgan: 6-8 F, from Detroit, Michigan
Matt Vogrich: 6-4 SG, from Lake Forest, Illinois

MGoBlue has a good write up on the class, including Coach Beilein’s comments on each player.
Here is the link MGoBlue

Morris is a highly rated point guard. Vogrich was recently named the best shooter in the 2009 class by The Sporting News. McLimans is a versatile big man who Beilein thinks could be a star. Morgan is a good all around player with good size.

 

The Wolverines will lose 3 players from this years squad and they are David Merritt, CJ Lee, and Jevohn Shepherd.

This is what the roster should look like next year:

Jr. PG – Kelvin Grady
So. SG/PG – Laval Lucas-Perry
So. SG – Stuart Douglass
Fr. PG – Darius Morris
Fr. SG – Matt Vogrich
So. SG – Stuart Douglass
Jr. SF- Corperryale “Manny” Harris
RS Jr. F – Anthony Wright
So. SF – Zack Novak
RS Sr. C – Zack Gibson
Sr. PF – DeShawn Sims
So. C – Ben Cronin
Fr. PF – Jordan Morgan
Fr. PF – Blake McLimans

    Looking at next year’s lineup, it’s doesn’t seem like there will be much PT for Kelvin Grady.

    He could be the odd man out. Even this year when LLP becomes eligible on Dec. 20th that will cut into Grady’s PT. Beilein has siad he likes an 8 man rotation.

  3. MattD says:

    It’ll be interesting to see what 8 or 9 he settles on out of that relatively large bunch.

    Coach Beilein has said he likes to find 7 or 8 guys and run with them. Next year’s team is going to be pretty deep, so it will be interesting
