Derrick Walton is the point guard of today.
Getting the man of tomorrow is Beilein's task at hand.
Per 247Sports, Michigan has offered three PGs. So if the counts of six schollies are correct, that means that half of the Wolverines' efforts, in a sense, are focused on securing their next 1-guard.
However, it's worth noting that Eric Davis was offered during an unofficial visit on May 15, per UMHoops.com. For some reason, 247 doesn't list the 6'3," 172-pound Saginaw Arthur Hill 4-star on Michigan's page. He's pretty much Michigan State's anyway.
And it's also worth noting that he said he liked his visit, per Dylan Burkhardt of UMHoops:
Take me through your Michigan visit?
“It went really well. I got got there and talked to Coach. We went to campus, to the academics area, the study hall where the guys study at, we went by some frat houses, we went to see where the guys stay in the dorms, went to a couple classes where I’d be at. Then we went back to Crisler Arena and we went in a room and he kind of showed me the offense and then told me that I’d be a perfect fit for the offense and Coach Beilein offered me a scholarship.”
How did he offer you?
“He told me that he wants me, the staff loves me and he said that my game and my character fit Michigan very well and then he said ‘I’m offering you a scholarship to the University of Michigan.’”
How did he say you would fit in the offense?
“Just the way I can score with pick-and-roll offense, where I can attack off the dribble and find shooters and just my overall game."
At the moment, Jalen Brunson, another 4-star, is of prime interest. As the No. 4-ranked point guard of 2015, the 6'1," 190-pound standout from Adlai Stevenson (Lincolnshire, Illinois) has drawn attention from Michigan State, Illinois (the current favorite per 247's Crystal Ball), Villanova, Kansas and UConn, among others.
He may get away, but the Crystal Ball says that Jalen Coleman, a 4-star out of La Lumiere School in Indianapolis, is Michigan's for the taking (92 percent). The 6'3," 160-pounder is tops in his state, has Big Ten powers at his doorstep and is being followed by the likes of Duke, Kansas and Louisville.
He's a popular guy and would fit well into Beilein's offense, as would Davis and Brunson.
But there's one more player of interest: Perry Dozier of Spring Valley High (Columbia, South Carolina), who has "cool" interest in the Wolverines, per 247Sports. The 6'5," 180-pounder seems bound for North Carolina, per 247. He's the No. 8-ranked point guard in his class and packs a great combination of scoring and distributing into his game.
