2011's Brundidge Commits Early

When schools show up at 6 a.m. to watch you workout, that means one thing: they want you in a bad way. On Monday, junior Carlton Brundidge reciprocated the interest from a Big Ten program.

The Michigan Wolverines scored a big pledge as 6-foot-2 Carlton Brundidge of Southfield (Mich.) High picked the Wolverines.

Scout.com's 64th-ranked prospect from the Class of 2011, made his commitment after three Michigan staffers should up at 6 a.m. to watch him workout Monday morning.

"Three coaches came this morning, they were really pursuing him," Clennie Brundidge said of his son's decision. "He thought it was a good fit, his sister goes there and Coach Beilein did a great job of showing what he could do for the program. The players were unbelievably supportive of him."

Beilein has Detroit players on his team in Ann Arbor but Brundidge is the first one the coach recruited start to finish since his arrival in town. Michigan evaluated him thoroughly and found the junior guard to be a strong match for the style they employ.

"(Beilein) watched him at the Peach Jam, saw him in Kansas City and he went to his games as a sophomore. He didn't know the kid could shoot like that. He thinks (Carlton) can fit in his system."
