New Michigan Men: Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Aubrey Dawkins

With the departure of Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III, Michigan knew it had to use the open scholarships available to fill the depth. Luckily, John Beilein is an unbelievable developer of talent so the pool of players to pick from is always large. And whataya know, he did it again. After recently landing offers, both Muhammed Ali Abur-Rahkman (MAAR) and Aubrey Dawkins decided to pull the (late) trigger and commit to Team 99 and the Michigan Wolverines!

Both players are guards but fill different roles. MAAR is more of a guard that can man both the point and the two thanks to great vision, smooth handles, a killer jump shot and the ability to finish at the rim. He has the look of a player that Beilein and company will turn into an All-Conference player. It will be a role similar to Caris Levert\’s.

As for Dawkins, he is the son of former Duke star, Johnny Dawkins. He is an electrifying athlete that can jump out of the gym but can also handle the rock and can shoot from the outside. He will fill the role similar to Tim Hardaway Jr.\’s.

With these two underrated guards joining the six-man 2014 class, Beilein has fixed the depth issue and has picked up two more players that he can develop from hardly ranked to star players. Along with SF Kameron Chatman, PF/C Ricky Doyle, F DJ Wilson and injured SG Austin Hatch, MAAR and Dawkins will step onto campus this fall with the ability to contribute and help lead Michigan to it\’s 3rd B1G Championship in 4 years.
