M stil in running for Loucks

Luke Loucks is a 6-5 swing man from Georgia. He was strongly considering WVA before Beilein left. He's now considering Michigan. A couple of quotes from his local newspaper make it look like we are very much in the hunt for him:

There are hordes of basketball coaches jumping in on the Loucks sweepstakes. The latest? Minnesota's Tubby Smith, who called Loucks Wednesday night. The intriguing one? Michigan's John Beilein, who Loucks built a relationship with while Beilein recruited him while coach at WVU.

But, as Loucks said, in making a decision like this, you can be impressed with a campus and facilities all you want. But "you're basically picking a coach."
