Another Michigan recruit is playing in the same tournament. ESPNU (Comcast channel 735 in Ann Arbor) will broadcast Nik Stauskas and his St. Mark’s School (Mass.) team's game against Friends Central (Pa.) at 2 p.m. today.

McGary, the No. 3-ranked recruit in the class of 2012 according to Rivals, will go head-to-head with Tilton’s 6-foot-10 Nerlens Noel, Rivals’ No. 3 recruit in the 2013 class, and 6-foot-7 power forward Georges Niang, who will play at Iowa State.
