    Just a continuation of the tremendous job of recruiting the past two to three years. Believe me there will be more big guns to follow from now on. Are you listening DJ Carton? Will you be the next to enjoy being a Michigan Wolverine?

    Was looking for actual game film of Jalen and found a game this past year against Austin Westlake. Didn’t know much about either team but noticed quickly there was some serious talent on the floor. Several high majors playing. Watched first half so far and Wilson looked very good.
