Found May 07, 2013 on UM Hoops:
It’s no secret that Michigan and Purdue have prioritized Vince Edwards at the combo forward position. The 6-foot-7 forward demonstrated why both John Beilein and Matt Painter want him so badly at the 2013 Bill Hensley Memorial Run-n-Slam Classic in Fort Wayne over the weekend. Edwards was critical in helping his All Ohio Red squad take home the 17U Championship in a loaded field. He can do a little bit of everything at the combo forward spot and improved as the weekend wore on. Edwards had 22 points in All Ohio Red’s semifinal win over Spiece and he added ten in the championship victory over Team Thad. While it was a statement weekend on the court for Edwards and All Ohio Red, not much has changed in his recruitment.

In-state recruiting battle brewing for 2016 point guard Cassius Winston

John Beilein’s two guard offense was originally designed to minimize the necessity of a true point guard. He didn’t have a lead ball handler so he leaned on two guards instead of one. In recent years, Beilein’s offense has morphed into a showcase for superb point guard play. Darius Morris started the trend, Trey Burke took it to the next level and Derrick Walton hopes to continue...

Michigan sees Kevon Looney as potential Robinson replacement

Kevon Looney is arguably the top combo forward in the class of 2014 and Michigan coach John Beilein thinks his system could be a perfect match. “They tell me that they like me,” Looney told UM Hoops in Fort Wayne on Friday. “And that when I come in they think Glenn Robinson would be leaving and I’d probably fill his position.” The fit makes perfect sense. Looney is tall...
