The internet has been buzzing with rumors and speculation surrounding Mitch McGary’s recruitment after the news that cancelled all future visits and plans to make a college decision within the next month. Several national reporters have chimed in during the last 24-hours on where they think the consensus top-5 prospect in the class of 2012 will decide to play his college ball.
The Courier-Journal’s Jody Demling agrees with Telep, noting that he’s hearing Michigan leads as well:
Word on the street is that Michigan has emerged as a leader for 2012 big man Mitch McGary, who was supposed to make an official visit to Kentucky for Big Blue Madness. Scout.com national analyst Evan Daniels reported on Sunday night that he was hearing Michigan was a “major favorite.” There is also some speculation now that McGary, a native of Indiana, won’t make any more visits.

Michigan and Duke have been considered the leaders for the past several weeks but at this point it appears Michigan has pulled ahead. McGary hasn’t made a commitment but the coming days and weeks could be some of the most important for Michigan basketball in quite some time.
