Another one off the board, this one is Country Day big man Donnovan Kirk who is headed down south ($) to University of Miami. Kirk was originally thought to be a good bet to attend MSU but after they took other big men (Nix and Sherman) that appeared much less likely in recent weeks. The much hyped 2009 in state recruiting class has been on the decline of late and Kirk to Miami is not the type of high major splash that was expected from this class. Interestingly enough the in-state schools took big men Nix and Jordan who were not originally considered the top big men in the class but have been drawing solid reports of late. One other quick link worth a mention, heres a profile ($) on 2010 Keith Appling who will likely be committing to MSU soon.
Also, Beilein has been busting out his check book to pay off his buy out.
