August 20, 2013Michigan is expecting an October visit from Sacramento (Calif.) Capital Christian wing D.J. Wilson, while Indianapolis Park Tudor four-star small forward Trevon Bluiett has moved his visit date back a week. Those notes plus more, including the latest on 2015 small forward Dwayne Bacon
Starting with Wilson. We've confirmed that Wilson will visit Columbia September 19th, Gonzaga the weekend of September 27th and Michigan the weekend of October 4th. Michigan faces Minnesota on the gridiron that day, and Moss Point (Miss.) four-star shooting guard Devin Booker (6-5, No. 27) will also be in attendance for his official visit that day.
Wilson, a three-star and Rivals.com's No. 150 player nationally, was slowed last year by a back injury. UCLA, USC and others took notice of his play this summer in addition to Michigan.
"D.J. can shoot it, handle it and pass it at 6-9 and is just scratching the surface in his basketball career," "LeRohn Dodson, his Team Superstar coach, said earlier this month. "He is going to surprise a lot of people. He's a great kid and an extremely hard worker who wants to be really good at his craft. Schools just wanted to see if the back was an issue and clearly it's not. In our Under Armour Association, he was one of the top kids, period."
Wilson could get an offer on his visit.
Bluiett (6-5), meanwhile, remains one of Michigan's top targets in the 2014 class. He had been planning his Aug. 31 visit for some time, but will now visit on Sept. 7 during Notre Dame weekend. He now plans on visiting UCLA Aug. 31.
In other news, Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy's Dwayne Bacon, a 6-6 2015 ranked No. 22 nationally, is no longer certain about a Michigan visit.
"I just have to take the visit to get the offer, but that's going to be tough, real tough [to get to Michigan]," Bacon said. "They have cut down on talking to me, so I'm not sure yet."
U-M coaches seem to have refocused their efforts on 2014 recruits, which could explain the recent lack of communication.
