Even with the pursuit, commitment, decommitment and loss of five star shooting guard Tyus Battle, Michigan’s #1 target in the 2016 class looks to have been the top player in Michigan the entire time, PG Cassius Winston. And now the staff will have their “official” chance to impress him on September 19th for the football game vs UNLV:
@cassiuswinston official visit schedule: Stanford (8-7) Pittsburgh (8-30) Harvard (9-4 – tentative), Michigan St. (9-12) Michigan (9-19).

From day one, it’s looked like Winston was going to stay in-state and play for the Wolverines or Spartans. MSU fans think he’s a “lock” to end up in East Lansing while Michigan’s top basketball recruiting analysts like UofM.
So, who will it be? It’s a toss up at this moment but with Michigan getting the last visit, I believe they’ll have the upper hand after the official visits.
