Spike Albrecht

Michigan received a visit from 2012 point guard Michael “Spike” Albrecht this week and he pledged to become the 4th member of the Wolverine’s highly touted class. Albrecht originally hails from Crown Point Indiana, but played this past season at Mount Hermon prep school in Massachusetts. While there he broke the school’s single season assist record by dishing out 241 dimes.

Regardess of what Trey Burke decides, the Wolverines were in dire need of adding another point guard to the roster. Albrecht is a true floor general, who handles the rock as if it were on a string. He can get in the lane to create a shot for himself or to set up a teammate. He played AAU ball with fellow Michigan commits Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary for SYF. Here are some highlights from Albrecht’s season at Mount Hermon.

ESPNU recently released their final rankings for the class of 2012. Glenn “Tre” Robinson landed at #18 overall on the list and was anointed with 5-star status. Mitch McGary landed at #27 on the list and Nik Stauskus checks in at #76.

Meanwhile, Trey Burke is expected to decide by April 10th whether or not he will return to Michigan for his sophomore season or declare himself eligible for the NBA Draft. His return would cement the Wolverines as a preseason Top 5 team. It would also allow Albrecht to be mentored by an All-American point guard.
