Recruiting: 2013 Michigan signee Zak Irvin the favorite for Indiana's Mr. Basketball?
The Michigan basketball program finished the 2012 recruiting period by signing the top high school player in the state of Indiana, according to Rivals.com.
That player, of course, was Glenn Robinson III -- who finished as a five-star player ranked at No. 11 on Rivals' Top 150, 14 spots ahead of Michigan State signee Gary Harris (who eventually won the state's Mr. Basketball honor).
The 2013 recruiting carousel hasn't completely stopped yet, but it looks like Michigan might be in position to repeat that feat once again -- this time with Hamilton Southeastern wing -- and Michigan signee -- Zak Irvin.
In a recent roundtable, Indianapolis Star high school hoops writers Mark Ambrogi, Kyle Neddenriep and Nat Newell all pegged Irvin as their early frontrunner for the state's Mr. Basketball award.
After scoring 23 points in a win over Muncie Central last weekend, Irvin sat with a scoring average of 25.5 points per game, according to The Star. His Hamilton Southeastern squad is 10-1.
Presently, Irvin is listed as a four-star prospect by Rivals.com, and the No. 34 player in the 2013 class.
Irvin was in Ann Arbor on Sunday, along with fellow 2013 signees Derrick Walton and Mark Donnal, to catch No. 2 Michigan's 28-point home win over Iowa.
According to Irvin's Twitter account, 2014 commit Austin Hatch was also in attendance.
Speaking of Donnal, the 6-foot-9 big man from Anthony Wayne High School put up 14 points and 16 rebounds in a recent win, besting Wisconsin pledge Vitto Brown.
“Mark carries the load … but tonight it was about the supporting cast,” Anthony Wayne coach Bryan Borcherdt told the Toledo Blade afterward. “I'm so proud of those guys. We talked before the game about being a brotherhood. When we're in the trenches together you have to fight. When you have a guys like Mark, he attracts so much attention it takes other guys stepping up."
