Nik Stauskas signs, joins McGary, Robinson III in 2012 Michigan basketball class
And then there were three.
After getting national letters of intent from MItch McGary and Glenn Robinson III on Wednesday, Michigan basketball coach John Beilein completed his early period business Friday when St. Mark's (Mass.) shooting guard Nik Stauskas signed to play for the Wolverines next season.
"Nik is an outstanding three-point shooter who becomes a playmaker with the ball off the bounce," Beilein said in a released statement. "He possesses tremendous ball handling skills and outstanding court vision which allow him to be an exceptional passer. Nik loves the gym and works tirelessly to expand his skill set.
"We welcome him to The University of Michigan with great anticipation."
The official announcement on Stauskas' signing came on Nov. 11, 2011. Staying in theme, Stauskas said via Twitter on Friday that he'll wear No. 11 next season.
A native of Mississauga, Ontario, Stauskas averaged 20 points, six rebounds and five assists per game at St. Mark's (Mass.) last season, leading the squad to a 26-2 record.
The 6-foot-6, 205-pound guard/forward is rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals.com and ESPN.com.
Rivals slots Stauskas as the 79th-best prospect in the 2012 class, and the 12th-best shooting guard. ESPN rates him as the 83rd-best prospect in America.
With McGary, Robinson and Stauskas signed, Michigan sits with a consensus top 10 recruiting class.
