Last night Amir Williams, the talented center out of Detroit Country Day, used the word "recap" a lot because to him in describing his visit to GoBlueWolverine, because that is what his visit was about. He felt like he had been up to Michigan enough times that for him it was a recap of what he already knew.
"I have been up there enough to know what they have. I like the coaching staff
and the players. I have toured the facilities. So I know what Michigan has to
For Coach Beilein and staff, they want to know if they made a big enough
impression on Amir that he will sign with them. Well the fact that Michigan
received an official visit is sufficient, because at one time it didn't seem that
they would even get him back on campus. The relationship he has built with
assistant coach Bacari Alexander has changed that, and Alexander is a big reason as to
why Michigan has a chance with Amir Williams.
"We have a close relationship and that is because we talk a lot."
On his visit this weekend Coach Alexander showed Amir just what he wanted to see
concerning big men.
"Coach showed me all these post moves at their practice. I was focusing on the
drills he was doing with the big men in the low post. The moves were really
advanced, I really liked what they were doing. Coach Alexander has a good track
record with bigs, so I feel like if I went there he would give me a shot to be in the
league one day with the way he develops big men. Coach Alexander answered all of
Williams had the chance to meet with players, coaches and the staff.
"Jordan Dumars was my host. I had met most of the guys before and we all were
together on Saturday. I also talked with Coach Jordan and Coach Meyers, both are
real cool guys."
At the end he spoke with Coach Beilein, and nothing has changed with the way he
feels about him.
"I still feel like I could play for Coach Beilein. He and I have a very good
relationship, I feel very comfortable with him and the staff. Coach told me what
a asset I could be to the team overall. I had a very good visit at Michigan."
With a decision looming next week Amir has enjoyed the process but is glad it is
nearing the end.
"It started out as fun but with the e-mails and phone calls … I am just glad it is
going to be over with. I am ready to make a decision."
