Trey Zeigler to announce college plans Wednesday, report says CMU

By Michael Rothstein

Mt. Pleasant swingman Trey Zeigler, the top remaining uncommitted prospect for Michigan in the Class of 2010, will make his college decision tomorrow on ESPNU, he said on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

Zeigler narrowed his list of finalists to five schools earlier this year: Michigan, UCLA, Central Michigan, Arizona State and Michigan State.

The announcement, according to the the Morning Sun, will come around 4:45 p.m on ESPNU followed by a 9 a.m. press conference at Mount Pleasant High on Thursday morning.

Zeigler finished second in the Mr. Basketball voting in Michigan behind Michigan State commit Keith Appling.

Michigan's site, The Wolverine, is reporting Zeigler will announce he is heading to Central Michigan on Wednesday to play for his father, Ernie Zeigler. Ernie Zeigler received a contract extension earlier this week.

Michigan already has two commitments - Tim Hardaway Jr. and Evan Smotrycz - signed for 2010. Jon Horford, a forward from Grand Ledge, is expected to sign his national letter of intent during the spring signing period, which begins Wednesday.

I agree with Dre regarding concern over John Beilein's recruiting ability. This was probably the big knock on him coming in and it's coming to pass, at least so far. He can sign 2nd tier players out the wazoo. But, so far has been largely unable to sign the Manny Harris or Deshawn Sims-caliber players. This will make it hard for Michigan to return to an elite status in college basketball. As long as Tom Izzo continues to sign the best players in Michigan, U-M will be playing 2nd fiddle to MSU.

anybody else think that perhaps in state recruiting chops will be highest among the qualities sought from new hoops assistant coaches?

Yes I agree that it is cool that he would be playing for his father....well somewhat....I have to be honest if I was coaching a mac school I would not really recruit my son. I would allow him to make the decision to come there w/o my influence. I would have to tell him the odds of going to the NBA from there vs going to a UCLA or Duke or anywhere else at a BIG school. But big gain for CMU...The bigger issue here is John Belien. This guy just can't recruit the best players in Michigan AT ALL. There was plenty of talent in Michigan this year and he came away with Jon Horford? I don't think he was even top 5. He threw his eggs in this basket and loss. Michigan is going to be terrible again this year. They lost over 50% of their production. I don't see how anybody can see great things for this program. AND IM A MICHIGAN FAN!!!!!!
