Mitch McGary’s final ESPN blog before his Thursday decision was posted this morning. McGary will announce his choice between Duke, Florida and Michigan Thursday evening at 5 p.m on ESPNU. Here’s what McGary had to say on Michigan:
What I really like about Michigan is its coaching staff, especially Bacari Alexander. He’s probably one of the most underrated coaches in the country. He really knows what he’s doing with the big men.
I just like that I can trust the coaches there, and I actually like that they’re not on the biggest stage yet. That gives me the opportunity to go there and make a huge impact from day one.
A con for Michigan is that the Big Ten has a reputation for being a slow paced conference with slow big men who don’t really get out and run the floor at all. That’s not the way that I want to play so I’ve definitely got to take that into consideration. I know that if I went there it would help change the perceptions a lot.
