Michigan recruit Austin Hatch's status for his high school basketball season remains in question
Last week, he was spotted attending a Michigan State basketball game.
But will the Fort Wayne Canterbury High School guard play this season?
“It is unknown right now,” Canterbury coach Dan Kline told the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. We are just preparing for the season. I don’t really know how to plan for something like this, but we are moving forward and carrying on.”
After spending three months at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City following a plane crash that took the life of both his father and step mother, Hatch has returned to Canterbury, with a limited class schedule, according to The Journal Gazette.
The 6-foot-6 Hatch averaged 23.3 points and 9.3 rebounds last season at Canterbury and committed to be part of Michigan's 2013 recruiting class this past summer.
Wolverines coach John Beilein is unable to comment on the situation per NCAA rule, because Hatch is an unsigned recruit.
