2017 Basketball Commits

1. SG: Jordan Poole, 6’4” 180lbs. Milwaukee, WI (Rufus King)

Poole is a top 100 player that fits the Beilein mold of combo guards. He is a smooth playmaker that can play either guard positions but looks to be a better fit at the two thanks to his scoring and spot up shooting ability. His skills remind me a bit of a more developed Muhammed-Ali Abdur-Rahkman at the same point.

2. PG: Eli Brooks, 6’1” 170lbs. Spring Grove, PA (Spring Grove Area)

Brooks is an aggressive, scoring point guard that uses his athleticism and instincts to dominate at the high school level. Though, like most rising recruits, he has some ways to go to be physically ready for the collegiate game but with another year of high school ahead of him, he should be able to mature as both a player and prospect.

3. F: Isaiah Livers, 6’8” 205lbs. Kalamazoo, MI (Kalamazoo Central)

Livers is another long, rangy, athletic combo forward that Beilein (and every college coach) seems to love to have on the roster. Though he doesn’t have the height DJ Wilson, he has a pretty similar game. He can score from all over the court as a pick and pop three point shooter or a one-on-one player going into the post. With time in the weight room and with the staff, he should be a nice contributor throughout his career.
