Matt Costello, who I interviewed last week, has received an official offer from Michigan. I received a text message from Matt’s father earlier today confirming that Matt had been offered.
I saw Costello play earlier in the summer and was very impressed:
Costello is tall, long, tough and coordinated. A lot of times with young big guys, you get the sense that they’re still growing into their bodies, but he looked perfectly at home. You looked at him and expected him to dominate the glass, and he did. He kept the ball high in the post, which takes some guys years to learn. When didn’t receive entry passes, he went and got them. He was quick on his feet for someone his size, losing his defenders in the post and staying in front of whoever he was guarding.
So far we have been able to confirm that Michigan has offered Yogi Ferrell, JaVontae Hawkins, and Gary Harris in the class of 2012. The Indy Star has also reported that Ron Patterson picked up a Michigan offer.
