Juwan Howard lands his first five star recruit for Michigan Basketball

Juwan Howard lands his first five star recruit for Michigan Basketball”

He could be one of the last high school prospects who does not have the option to skip straight to the NBA, but those top recruits are exactly the type of players who might see themselves in Howard and be a key to maintaining Michigan's status as a national power after John Beilein's departure to the NBA. "What made me believe in it, just over the months that I've talked to him I started to trust him more and more and I started to connect with him". "Or email", Howard said. "From there, we were talking and just instantly clicked". "I think he had to have another 6-10 coach to recruit him". You've got to do a really good job with your text game, too. MI hired Howard in May.

MI basketball is ushering in a new era under recently hired head coach Juwan Howard.

Hours after his media day news conference, Howard had a recruiting victory when Isaiah Todd of Word of God Christian Academy in North Carolina chose MI in an announcement streamed on WRAL.com.

Todd, who is ranked as the No. 12 overall player in the 2019 class, is a superb snag for Coach Howard as a building block for the future.

"He said he's going to push me and he told me he's going to make me the person I want to be first of all and then the player I want to be, and he said he's going to do it in the time that I'm there". "I want them to know that I'm in their corner 110%, and that has to be proven by my actions, not just my words". Howard says the team is healthy at the moment.

In the summer, Howard secured a commitment from Franz Wagner, who will technically always. It was he that became the recruiter to bring in the rest of the star players. Under Beilein, Michigan wasn't necessarily beating out Kentucky and Duke for the top-ranked high school prospects, but the coaching staff excelled at identifying talent and developing players. So far, Todd has said that he plans to be in college next year but it is likely something that Wolverines fans will have to deal with until he shows up on campus.

Although there are rules governing what coaches can and can't say about their recruiting efforts with specific players, Howard was asked at media day to explain how he pitches MI to young prospects. "One of the best institutions in the world".

"When we went and watched MI and compared it, it was exactly where I feel comfortable", he said. We were like, in the mountains.
