Dustin Johnston @TKBigCrew Which ’13 recruit has the greatest opportunity to make an impact as a freshman? The easy answer is Derrick Walton. Walton is a great prospect and likely to contend for the Mr. Basketball award in the state of Michigan plus Trey Burke is a likely NBA early entry candidate. Combine those two facts with the amount of freedom that John Beilein allows his point guards, and why wouldn’t Walton be ready to step in and make an immediate impact?

He was doing so well with getting to the ba...
