PLAYERS: Mitch McGary
Andrew Dakich (Photo credit: IndyStar) Michigan Basketball needed to add some depth to their 2013-14 roster and they found the perfect player to do that when they offered Andrew Dakich a chance to be a preferred walk-on. Dakich had similar offers from Butler and Purdue, but was drawn to the Wolverines. He is the son of Dan Dakich and played AAU ball with Mark Donnal. Dakich is a 6-foot-2, 170 pound point guard out of Zionsville, Indiana. He is an excellent facilitator and very cerebral player who also possesses great leadership traits. He reported on twitter that he received a big hug from Mitch McGary when he committed and said he is excited to become a part of the Michigan Basketball family. Dakich tweeted: “Thank all the people who helped influence me on my decision. I just want to win national championships and that’s what Michigan is all about.” With the addition of Dakich, Michigan now has 12 players on the 2013-14 roster.
