Bigham has GREAT stats for a frosh but would be a bit short for a PF. He did not attempt a single trey.

Interesting recruit!!

He also had many Div I offers out of high school.

If you're looking for JUCOs sophomores for 2016 and ones with Michigan connections look at Barton Community KS for this past season:

RE: 2016 Men's Basketball Recruiting
If anyone (Hoopster, are you out there?) want to see some future MI h.s. recruits, The Family, an excellent AAU team plays at 2:00 today and I think later and again tomorrow in spring AAU ball. This is 17U competition so the kids will be mostly 2016 recruits.

Games are streamed live.

I'll try to post their roster. (I've seen box scores and rosters for spring AAU competition).

Here is a box score from yesterday with roster #s. Yes, Winston is a super, super, superstar.

Ty Groce has been offered by IL State (Mo Valley). This will be a difficult recruit for EMU.

He's got over a dozen offers.

RE: 2016 Men's Basketball Recruiting
I just read where Oakland strikes again. Brailen Neeley, a really good PG from Detroit Western (McDowell's school). I saw him play on webcast of the AAU tourney this past weekend. I like him a lot. He played on the team with Cassius Winston, the #1 h.s. recruit in the 2016 class. Possibly could have been a B1G recruit.

EDIT: Here is an article. He is Kahlil Felder II (same size, same style, talent, etc.).

http://www.freep.com/story/sports/high-s.../26490751/

I'll repeat a comment I've made before in other threads: When Oakland came on the scene with their O-Rena and later got into the Horizon they became another option (with UDM and EMU) for mid-major Detroit players who wanted to stay home. We've been struggling to win the recruiting battles in Detroit. Instead of players deciding between say UDM and a MAC school (e.g., EMU, CMU or WMU) now OU and UDM have major sway.

It seems to be that Oakland (and Oakland County) seems 'closer' to Detroit thnn Ypsilanti (and Washtenaw County). [On the other hand, the Western Wayne 'burb, e.g., Westland, Inkster, etc. seem closer toward EMU].

Until we start winning Detroit (again) we'll struggle with high school recruiting in MI. We haven't done well in Lansing. WMU and CMU control 'outstate'. When an student-athlete or student from Grand Rapids thinks of a MAC-caliber school it is likely to be WMU or CMU.

So we struggle in Detroit, Lansing, K'zoo, Grand Rapids, etc. meaning that we MUST go national and also must look hard at JUCOs, transfers, etc.

Dear steve,
Like I said before, McDowell was a mystery while at Eastern. Coming from the Detroit Public School League, we really did not get any recruits out of that league. Since he was let go with Ramsey, I doubt we would get any of his players as recruits to Eastern.

I don't know McDowell so I don't know his stance toward EMU (as he was fired with the entire Ramsey staff it's not likely to be good).

Also, I don't know the AAU coaches of the major Detroit area teams (e.g. The Family). AAU coaches are also very influential, some think much more influential than high school coaches.

RE: 2016 Men's Basketball Recruiting
This player is perhaps the second best point guard in the 2015 class but is going to Hillsdale Prep in AZ:

I thought CC had offered him in the 2015 class for football.

Maybe grades are an issue?
