Vogrich Visits, Ends Recruitment

Matt Vogrich, one of the most accurate shooters the summer circuit yielded, is headed to play for a coach who places a premium on deep connections. No. 100 is off the board.

The whirlwind recruitment of Matt Vogrich has ended in Ann Arbor.

Scout.com's No. 100 prospect out of Lake Forest (Ill.) High, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard, committed to Michigan after strongly considering Stanford. He visited Notre Dame in early September but recently the Irish decided to move in another direction. The Cardinal and Wolverines hosted Vogrich on back-to-back weekends.

From July 22-26 there wasn't a hotter wing prospect in the country as Vogrich torched the nets of various gyms in Las Vegas while playing for Full Package.

Last year Full Package sported a late bloomer named Iman Shumpert. This time around it was Vogrich's turn in the limelight. Rated the No. 19 shooting guard in the country, Vogrich took his recruitment from the mid to high-level in a span of a week.

How hot was he? One coach who played in last year's Final Four summed it up best: "Do you think we can really get involved with him?"

This weekend, it became official. One of the best shooters in the country will play for a guy who values skilled marksmen. "Matt committed to Michigan," Mary Vogrich, Matt's mother told Scout.com. Vogrich continues a family tradition of attending Big Ten schools. Both his mother and father are Big Ten alums.

In addition to Vogrich, the Wolverines own pledges from big man Jordan Morgan and point guard Darius Morris.

As a junior, Vogrich averaged 18 points a game to go with 8 boards. While shooting over 50 perfect from the field, Vogrich found the bottom of the net 41 perfect of the time behind the arc.
