Kameron Chatman, the jewel of Michigan's 2014 recruiting class
With perhaps knowing that he would need a large recruiting haul with the possibility of McGary, Stauskas and Robinson III all leaving early, Beilein roped in a rather impressive class.
In the fall, Michigan signed Kameron Chatman, Ricky Doyle, D.J. Wilson and Austin Hatch. Then after McGary, Stauskas and Robinson III all officially declared for the NBA draft, Beilein and company brought in versatile guard/forwards in Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Aubrey Dawkins in the spring signing period.
Collectively it is a nice class, as it is ranked as the No. 28 class according to 247Sports. If there is one thing Beilein can do better than almost any coach, it is to find jewels on the recruiting trail and coach them into stars. There may be a learning curve with this class, but in due time it is sure to leave its mark.
