|Mitch McGary to wear the Maize & Gold|
Hail, Hail to Michigan, the Champions of the West
- The day after his teammate TJ Warren committed to North Carolina State, Brewster Academy big man Mitch McGary committed to the University of Michigan, choosing the Wolverines in the end over Duke and Florida. For the Wolverine basketball faithful, today's commitment was a momentous and historic happening, as McGary, the top big man in America, is the biggest recruiting score for Michigan Hoops since Chris Webber more than twenty years ago. Furthermore, when you throw in Nick Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III, it is safe to say that head coach John Beilein's 2012 recruiting class will come in among the nation's best and will be Michigan's best since the Fab Five.
- "McGary, who plays for Brewster Academy in New Hampshire and is originally from Michigan senior Zack Novak's hometown of Chesterton, Indiana, is a universal five-star recruit. He is ranked third in the nation by Rivals and second in the nation by both Scout and ESPN. All three sites list him as the top player at his position. He is the type of player that is expected to start from the second he steps on campus, and he is expected to be a high NBA Draft pick potentially after just one season in college if he elects to go pro."
