It apparently took a while but Michigan has received a letter of intent from Tim Hardaway Jr. and Evan Smotrycz. For more on Michigan’s pair of signees, here are their commitment articles: Hardaway Jr., Smotrycz.
Here are the obligatory Beilein quotes:
“These are two multi-dimensional players that are very capable of playing several different positions,” said Beilein. “They have good length. They are outstanding shooters. They have a good feel for the game with high basketball IQs. They have great court vision. What really impresses me is their ability to pass which will be valuable down the road.”
“The biggest thing about Tim is he has a pretty jump shot,” said Beilein. “If you look at Manny’s (Harris) jump shot right now, it is perfect, and Tim’s is pretty close to that point early with his development. It’s got great form, great spin and has a chance to go in every time. He is a very athletic player and like I said before his vision on the court in outstanding.”
“Evan can play three different positions for us,” said Beilein. “It is his versatility, great size and shooting ability which we like. Being 6-9, it is rare to see someone shoot it like he does. But what I really like is that he is an exceptional passer. His potential is outstanding.”
