Class of 2009 Basketball Recruiting Primer

A breakdown of the available scholarships for the basketball program for the next three classes and listing of the known targets and commitments for the 2009 class.

Format Change
One significant change to the list is the addition of the "target level" and "interest" indexes to each profile. Target level refers to our OPINION on where each respective player stands on the current recruiting list based on all of the information gathered up to this point. Interest refers to the how strongly each respective player is considering the Wolverines at this point in time. Each category is rated on a scale from 1 (low) to 5 (high).

5 - Interest couldn't be any stronger
4 - Very strong interest. Only a matter of time before they're 5's
3 - Interested with the potential to move up with more familiarity and evaluation
2 - Limited interest
1 - Low interest
U - Unknown

The list is ordered first by Target Level and then sub-ordered by Interest level. These ratings can change from update to update, so keep an eye on them!

This list will be updated regularly as new players are discovered and players already listed make their decisions. The link to the Primer will reside permanently on the left NAV bar under the Best Guess Recruiting Class section.
