A number of Michigan prospects were in action at the 2013 Spiece Run-n-Slam Classic in Fort Wayne, Indiana over the weekend and UM Hoops was in attendance from Friday through Sunday. In part one of our scouting report we look at Kevon Looney, AJ Turner, Josh Jackson, Cassius Winston and a handful of other priority Wolverine recruits in the 2014, 2015 and 2016 classes.
Kevon Looney (2014, Milwaukee Rebels, Power Forward)
You don’t have to watch Kevon Looney for long to realize why he’s a top-ten prospect. At 6-foot-9, 210 pounds, Looney is a man among boys on the court, using his incredible size and length to dominate the game. To go along with his overwhelming length, Looney has the handles and the range to be effective beyond the arc as well.

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...
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...
It's great that Michigan's Devin Gardner and Denard Robinson are mean-muggin' the camera at UM's graduation, but this photo is definitely missing something. But what?
