Webber was a lousy shooter, though. Averaged about 50% on FTs, and hit less than 1 3-pointer per game as a sophomore.

He only took 2.2 3-point shots a game, so making less than one isn't a surprise. 34% is still decent for a 6'9" 245 lb. guy in that era. He was better from 3 than Jalen and Ray that year...though Ray seemingly made 1 every other game with his toes just over the line.

I checked in with a couple of ESPN guys today as where Iggy would've been ranked if they'd put him on there.

They'd just updated their rankings today. Johns is 57 and DeJulius is 90, I believe.

Since ESPN updated their rankings, 247 updated their composites as well. With that said, these are probably (?) 247's final rankings for the 2018 Class:

Johns moves up to #69
Iggy moves down to #76 (still #40 in 247's own rankings and it sounds like that's where he'd be in ESPN's, if they'd ranked him)
DeJulius moves up to #96
Castleton moves up to #123
Nunez moves down to #203

247 has us as the 15th best class and spartie is #13.

Who knows, maybe Larry Nance Jr. will still come as a preferred walk-on? I'm sure his dad still has money so maybe a scholarship isn't so important?
A little flashback. Wishful thinking after the Max Beilfeldt commitment.

Well, 247 did one last composite update:

Iggy moves all the way up to #36
Johns moves up to #65
DeJulius slides to #98
Castleton moves up to #117
and Nunez plummets to #290

Also, after the final rankings, Michigan wound up having the 8th best recruiting class (according to 247) in the nation and 2nd best in the B1G, behind Maryland. spartie finished at #14/#3.

BTW- 7 B1G teams finished in the top 24 recruiting classes plus Minnesota #37, Rutgers #40, and Purdue #41 did okay. The league should be a little stronger overall next season.

Has a good bit of room to improve, B1G was essentially equal with SEC for #4 behind Big XII, Big East, and ACC... Pac 12 was a very, very distant 6th and essentially a mid major.

6'6" SF Jalen Wilson, #29 (247comp) in 2019 is making a unofficial visit the weekend of May 11th and is rumored to be getting an offer. His Crystal Ball predictions on 247 have it a 3-way split (with only 3 predictions) between Michigan (predicted on 4/5), Oklahoma (predicted in March) and Marquette (predicted in '17). It's been a while since we got a commit from Texas. I don't think Beilein's ever landed one from down there.

Michigan makes Jalen Wilson's Final 6. The other contenders are OSU (Okie St., that is), Marquette, Baylor, Kansas, and UCLA. He's making an unofficial this weekend.

Jalen's quote about U of M: “I talk to assistant coach (Luke) Yaklich and head coach John Beilein all the time,” Wilson told Zagsblog.com last month. “I was named after Jalen Rose … so I know all about Michigan basketball, and my mom loves Michigan. They produce great players in the NBA, and they’re a great program in the Big Ten.

“I love the coaches there. They really get to me and tell me where I’m at, how I will fit into the program, and how much they really want me. I really enjoy talking to them.”

Fab Five fallout!

As for producing "great players in the NBA", it's nice that TIMMAY got paid big time, that Caris keeps improving and that Trey Burke had a bit of a resurrection in New York. GR III was injured almost the whole year but still may become a rotation player. Nik, I think, is fighting for his NBA-life. DJ is buried in a deep front-court in Milwaukee, so he may need to find a different team to get minutes. We'll see where Moe lands. Jamal Crawford is from 3 coaches ago, so I don't think his production is relative to this topic.

Hopefully, at least 1 or 2 of our guys get to all-star level. That can only continue to help in recruiting.

Jalen Wilson and DJ Carton are both getting some Crystal Ball picks for Michigan.

Wilson (#28 in the 247 composite) is now at 88% Michigan, with 8 predictions. Carton (Currently #33), with 7 predictions total, is at 71% Michigan. Let's hope the Crystal Ball is right!
