Legion to Kentucky, or UCLA, or UConn, Or . . .

In an article about how much the players like Beilein's system, Rivals reports that Legion is no longer considering Michigan. We wish you well (sort of). You still have time to make at least two more commitments and at least one decommitment.

Alex Legion, another Detroit guard and Rivals top-50 player who signed early with the Maize and Blue, asked for and recently was granted a release. Legion had planned to make an official visit to Ann Arbor next weekend, but told on Thursday he is no longer considering the Wolverines.

On the brighter side,

"A lot of it was completely different from what we are used to," Michigan junior forward Ronald Coleman said. "We did a lot of work on foot speed and shooting. Coach Beilein even demonstrated a lot of the stuff himself. He had a lot of energy and did a good job communicating.

"He put us in a lot of game situations. During one drill, we had to make a certain amount of jump shots in a certain amount of minutes. By the end I could barely lift my arms, but I think it really helped. It taught us how to shoot when you are exhausted."
