'15 MI C Justin Greason "Loves" UM Staff

One of the top big men in the State of Michigan for the class of 2015 is Utica Eisenhower's Justin Greason. Greason visited the Wolverines last week and came away extremely impressed.

The Wolverines pool of prospects continues filling up with class of 2015 big men.  The latest addition to the list is Utica Eisenhower High School power forward/center Justin Greason.  The versatile youngster experienced the Maize & Blue up close and personally during an unofficial visit for the football game against UMass.

“The campus is great,” Greason told GoBlueWolverine. “They gave me a tour of the facility and I got to see the new floor. It’s nice. They’re building a lot of new stuff in the basketball program.”

In addition to seeing the sights, the lengthy 6-8 sophomore also had a chance to meet and interact with the coaches.

“I love the coaching staff,” said Greason. “Coach Alexander, he’s a character. He’s a nice guy.”

“I loved all of them,” added Greason. “Coach Beilein and them make you feel right at home.”

Although John Beilein prefers to have big men that can play both on the perimeter and in the post, Greason admits he has a preference on the floor right now and motivation to improve in other areas.

“I like the back to the basket,” said Greason. “My go to move is the right hook. I’m really working on putting the ball on the floor and just becoming an overall round and good player.”

While in Ann Arbor Greason saw an example of the type of all-around he’d like to become.

“I got to meet Mitch McGary,” he said. “This will be his first year. He’s a big guy. He’s a nice guy,” added Greason. “He just talked about how he’s excited to start this year at Michigan.”

Growing up in Michigan, there are two sides of the ledger most residents can be on: The Wolverines or the Spartans. For Greason, he says he’s teetering right in the middle.

“I’ve always like both of them,” said Greason. “I’ve been mutual with both of them.”

When asked what other schools were recruiting him at this point, Greason mentioned both in-state powers.

“Really just those two,” said Greason of Michigan and Michigan State. “I’ve been playing with the Mustangs, played with them the last few tournaments and they called me up and wanted me to go to their football games.”
