Reports have been swirling all week that Mitch McGary was close to reaching a decision and that Michigan was in the lead for his commitment. That news appears to have taken a backseat today as the latest consensus appears to be that McGary’s recruitment is completely open.
ESPN’s Dave Telep reports that all six schools that McGary has previously listed – Michigan, Duke, North Carolina, Florida, Maryland and Kentucky – are viable options in his recruitment at this time. Here’s a snippet from the free portion of Telep’s ESPN Insider update:
A few days ago, the recruitment of Mitch McGary (Chesterton, Ind./Brewster Academy) looked like it was coming to a conclusion. The information that came across my desk from multiple sources involved in his recruitment, pointed directly at the University of Michigan. I’ve been doing this a long time and when the talk heads in this direction, the outcome typically follows right on down the road. McGary’s recruitment is nothing, if not atypical.
Michigan, Duke, North Carolina and Florida would have to be considered viable options. You hear less regarding Maryland and Kentucky. Round and round we go, where McGary lands, no one knows. During the Recruiting Nation show Paul Biancardi nailed it. “The thing that is absolutely sure about Mitch McGary is that he’s unsure about where he wants to go.”
