Michigan Wolverines recruiting strategy:Get relatives of former NBA players

Sep 15, 2010, 8:30 PM EST

Take a look at the roster of the Michigan Wolverines basketball team. The Big Lead did and it is interesting.

You have Jordan Dumars, son of the legendary Bad Boy Piston Joe Dumars. There is Tim Hardaway Jr., who is the son of… if I have to explain that to you, your problems have gotten very serious and you should look into getting professional help. They have Jon Horford, younger brother of the Hawks Al Horford.

And yesterday Glenn Robinson Jr. — the son of the Big Dog — committed to the school.

That has to be a recruiting strategy, right? It can’t be coincidence that relatives of that many current and former NBA players are at Michigan, can it?

Now, if they can recruit Austin Rivers, they will have something.
