Got an e-mail from Sean Ceglinsky of the LA Times reminding me to keep an eye on Keegan Hornbuckle from Campbell Hall HS in California. Hornbuckle is a class of ’09 wing forward at 6-6 who claims a U-M offer:
Arizona State, Oregon State and Michigan are among the numerous schools that have offered him a scholarship. Arizona is another major player and plans are in the works for an official visit to Tucson this weekend. Based on those facts, it appears the sky is the limit for Hornbuckle, who has emerged as a legitimate prospect.
Note: This Rivals article mentions a U-Arizona offer as well as a U-M in home. ($)
Here is a (lackluster) Dunk of the Day from Hornbuckle:
Hornbuckle, Barrett, and Vogrich are the main recruits claiming offers right now. Of those three, Barrett and Vogrich have visited an Ann Arbor. Another ’09 name that has been floating around with a potential offer is wing forward Isaiah Philmore who is planning to trip to Ann Arbor as well. At this point, one thing you can’t criticize Beilein for is his work ethic on the recruiting trail.
