McGary averaged 11.2 points and 9.6 rebounds per game last season for Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H., and eventually helped lead the club to a prep school national championship.

The Indiana native, a four-star prospect, will join five-star wing Glenn Robinson III, four-star guard Nik Stauskas, three-star point guard Spike Albrecht and three-star guard Caris LeVert in Michigan's five-man recruiting class for next season.

Other notable members of the Parade squad were Michigan State signees Gary Harris and Matt Costello from Bay City Western High School.

Costello and Cadillac's John Simons, a Central Michigan recruit, were the only Michigan high school players on the list.

Also on the squad were the country's consensus top two players, Kentucky signee Nerlens Noel and UCLA pledge Shabazz Muhammad.

This will be the most talented and hyped up Michigan basketball team in a long time. Let's hope our days of jacking up 3's and playing soft are done.

Are you really an AA native & long-time season ticket holder? If so, you are forbidden from ever misspelling Crisler as Chrysler ...even though we are only 40 miles from Detroit. Just messin' with you (smile).

Not interested in the Basketball program right now, I'm turned off by the Chrysler season ticket priority seating schedule, money talks, this loyal long time ticket holder walks. Will not be buying season tickets this year. The Michigan athletic department has gotten too greedy. Boycott basketball!!!!
