With at least three scholarships available for next season, the Michigan men’s basketball coaches are scouring the nation in search of top basketball recruits.
If the chips fell into place, however, the Wolverines’ next star might already be on campus. Then again, they might be busy.
Sophomore receiver Drake Harris and junior defensive end Taco Charlton — both standout basketball players in high school — discussed the possibility of rekindling the hardwood flame Tuesday after football practice.
Five weeks after a crowded running backs competition began, De’Veon Smith is the last man standing. That shouldn’t surprise anyone, given how hard it is to bring the junior down.
Smith broke numerous tackles Saturday afternoon, bulldozing the Michigan football team to victory. The back ended up with 150 total yards of offense, and became the first Wolverine with three rushing touchdowns since Fitzgerald Toussaint in a 63-47 shootout with Indiana on Oct. 19, 2013.
