Mitch McGary Commits to Michigan

He's the one on the left.

The Wolverines received a commitment from Brewster Academy's Mitch McGary. McGary is a 6'10'', 250 pound power forward originally from Chesterton, IN (the hometown of Zack Novak) who transferred to famed Wolfboro, NH to play at Brewster.

McGary is rated as the #2 player in the country to Rivals.com, the number 2 player to Scout.com, and the #2 player to ESPN. Yeah, he's pretty good. He chose the Wolverines over Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Maryland, and Florida.

As for his game, he does this...
 And this...

It's hard to find flaws in any highlight video, but damn.

McGary is the program changing player that Beilein needs. He has done "more with less" since his WVU days, and can now show what he can do with elite talent. He is widely considered a one and done, and top-5 NBA draft pick in 2013. UMHoops goes in depth.


He joins Glenn "Lil Dog" Robinson III, the number 34 player in the country, and Nick Stauskas who is rated as the number 79 player in the nation to give Michigan an elite 2012 class.
