MICHIGAN BASKETBALL SIGNS ZERO RECRUITS
Michigan Basketball Coach John Beilein has stepped out-of-the-box again. The ingenious innovator who took power-forwards out of his game-concept, and dropped interior passing in favor of bombing away from long-distance, has offered a new way to approach recruitment of players.
Yesterday was National Signing Day in college basketball, and Beilein did not sign-up any players to play for UM in the Class of 2015. You read it right, zero players have signed to play for the Wolverines next season. Zilch, nada, the null-set.
Perhaps the old coach got tired of the recruiting trail, choosing to sign six players last year, and apparently deciding that was enough to carry his team forward without any new blood in the 2015 class.
It's an unprecedented move, as no major programs have ever been known to leave a class totally empty, at least not on purpose. Michigan State has added as few as two players in a class, but never zero.
In case you were wondering why you haven't heard much about the Michigan Basketball recruiting class of 2015, now you know the reason why!
