The 6-foot-5 wing guard took an unofficial visit to Michigan this weekend. We posted a couple of notes on Stauskas’ last night, but I was able to get a hold of him today for some more in-depth answers.
What did you do in Ann Arbor? On Sunday, I got to see them practice and on Monday I met back up with them and got a tour of the campus.
What did you think of the campus? It was crazy. Their facilities there were really nice and they told me that by the time I came their whole basketball facilities would be redone and they’re planning to renovate the arena.
What did you think of practice? In the practice, Beilein seemed really relaxed, and I guess that would be kind of good not to have a hothead for a coach. For most of the practice they spent a lot of time on fundamentals, like passing, dribbling, shooting and that kind of stuff. Then they got up and down for a little five-on-five and what I noticed was that they like to shoot 3’s a lot. About 80 percent of their shots were from 3.
You like that, right? You’re a shooter. Yeah, that’s why I like it more because I definitely fit into that kind of offense.
What did you think of all the coaches? They were all real nice, they all welcomed me and they just showed me a lot of information so it was all good.
You were impressed with the player development center? They showed us on the computer a 3-D video of what the outside and inside of the facilities should look like and it’s just really nice.
The coaches told you they didn’t want to offer you until they knew you were going to commit right away? Yeah.
You aren’t ready to commit right now? I’m not ready to commit right now after talking with my family and my coaches I still want to wait to see who else comes to me, but my parents and I definitely enjoyed Michigan and I can definitely see myself coming here in a couple years.
Do you plan making an official visit later? Yeah we were talking about it hopefully next spring I could come for an official visit.
