    Ha. It was through the SID, I don’t remember exactly how. This was way back when the site was still really small – still much more of a blog than a website. We ended up getting lunch at Quickie Burger I believe, :rofl:. I don’t remember which recruit, it was actually something from another site (I think it was regarding some East coast kid) who reported that he had a Michigan offer or something like that. It was more I think that Beilein just wanted to know who was writing all of this stuff about his program at the time because there weren’t that many people writing about Michigan hoops.

    I think Caleb Houstan is the best-suited to make an immediate impact because his role is so projectable. I think Moussa Diabate might have the highest ceiling because of his physical tools, but I’ll go with Kobe Bufkin.

    I love guards with size who can create their own shot, finish at the rim and hit threes. Bufkin checks all of those boxes and has the tools to be a really exciting college player. Sophomore Kobe Bufkin could be really fun IMO.

    Brendan has that bartender vibe that really lets a conversation flow. I think that definitely is one of his best qualities. I also think we complement each other well with some of his heavier reporting-based stuff and some of my more analytics-based stuff.

    The self scout! I’d probably be harsh on myself but I guess I’d say I’m hopefully improving and at least people are listening. I like to think my strengths are bringing some insight into the numbers/trends behind a game and how they’d play out.

    It’s interesting because sometimes talking through a game on a pod actually makes me look at it completely differently than just writing a preview.

    He is a year away from graduation and by all accounts seems like a good fit in the locker room. If he didn’t play this year and was content through the entire COVID year, it doesn’t seem like that much of a stretch that he’d want to finish his degree at Michigan and enjoy his senior year.
