Jordan Dumars enrolls at Michigan

By Michael Rothstein

Former South Florida guard Jordan Dumars, the son of Detroit Pistons legend Joe Dumars, has enrolled at Michigan, according to the school's online directory.

Dumars initially told the Detroit Free Press last month he was leaning toward going to the school after leaving South Florida last year in his first semester.

Michigan begins classes Wednesday.

Dumars played in six games at South Florida, averaging 4.5 minutes, and 1 point a game. He took eight shots, all three-pointers, and made two of them.

The 6-foot-5 guard played high school basketball at Detroit Country Day and he averaged 10.2 points, 2.3 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals as a senior at Country Day.

On the South Florida Web site, Dumars said he initially picked USF over Dayton, Duquesne and Michigan.

I coached against Jordan several times when he was in high school. I would be very surprised if Michigan initiated this thing. Jordan is a great standstill shooter but he is very limited (or at least was) in terms of his lateral quickness and his ability to drive the ball to the basket. He seems like a very nice kid and certainly has the size and pedigree but I think he will be mostly a practice player, walk-on type guy at Michigan. But hey, from Coach Beilein's perspective, why not take him on? They aren't giving him a scholarship--there is no risk on Michigan's part and always a chance he develops.

MSU didn't want him.

It makes sense he would go to UM, the line-up should be easier to crack than South Florida's

I've seen Joe Dumars courtside at the UofM games from time to time.... wonder if he's a fan, checking out the talent or scouting for his son... Anyone know how good this kid is?
