Trey Zeigler granted release from CMU, report says Michigan basketball may be in the mix
Trey Zeigler was once an extremely hot basketball prospect in the state of Michigan.
And it appears he will be once again.
Zeigler, a former Mount Pleasant High School standout and four-star prospect, was granted a transfer request by Central Michigan on Tuesday, and is now free to look elsewhere.
The site also listed Michigan State, Duke, UCLA and Pittsburgh as schools possibly interested in Zeigler.
Zeigler himself tweeted Tuesday that he has plans to take a visit to Duke this weekend.
Another recruiting site, www.therecruitscoop.com, listed Michigan State, Duke, UCLA and Detroit as possible destinations for Zeigler -- but not Michigan.
The former Chippewa is leaving CMU after his father, Ernie, was fired as the program's head basketball coach earlier this month.
Zeigler, who would likely have to sit out next season due to transfer rules, turned down the likes of Michigan, Michigan State, Duke and UCLA to play for his father in 2010.
Presently, Michigan does not have any scholarships available for 2012.
