Michigan commit David DeJulius opens eyes during week one of EYBL tournament

The Michigan commit says he deserves a top 60 ranking after a successful weekend at EYBL.

2018 Michigan commit David DeJulius has been flying under the radar at Detroit Edison PSA.

If no one knew who he was before the EYBL tournament started this weekend, the point guard certainly opened some eyes this weekend. While his AAU team, The Family Detroit, went 0-4 during the first weekend, DeJulius was able to find some personal success on the court.

DeJulius has previously stated that he wanted to work on his three-point shot. The hours he worked on it appeared to have paid off as he saw success from beyond the arc.

Despite his teams struggles, DeJulius was pleased with his personal performance.

"(Laughs) winning wasn't one thing that went well," DeJulius joked. "But far as individual performance, the thing I believe I did well was just being comfortable and playing my game. Shooting at the right times and passing at the right times. My three ball was clicking due to countless hours of working on that stating that it was a weakness of mine some time ago. I motivated my teammates, gave them the ball in positions to be successful. I was very confident in my game this weekend."

With three more weekends to state his case as someone who deserves consideration to rise in the rankings, DeJulius definitely started the tournament off on the right foot. While other coaches still try to pry him away from grasp of U-M head coach John Beilein, he remains firmly committed to the Wolverines.

He's also committed to opening eyes and proving that he deserves to skyrocket in the rankings.

"Other college coaches still give their pitch although I'm 100% committed to The University of Michigan," DeJulius said. "As far as reporters, analysts and things of that nature, I believe that I showed them that I deserve to be in that top 60 ranking. I'm currently not in it but it fueled my fire and made me go harder.
