2012 combo guard Amedeo Della Valle, who was originally scheduled to visit Michigan this weekend, is now no longer on the Michigan radar. Della Valle tweeted last night that the Wolverines had stopped recruiting him.
So Michigan STOPPED recruiting me today? That’s really fair !!! WoW !!

With Trey Burke’s return to Ann Arbor and the addition of Spike Albrecht, the Wolverines are likely finished recruiting the class of 2012. If an option were to materialize late, Michigan could add a fifth year graduate transfer (who would be immediately eligible) to the mix to utilize one of two additional scholarships this season without affecting future classes.
The updated scholarship breakdown for the 2012 through 2015 classes can be found here.
