Hey, basketball news! Class of 2011 guard Carlton Brundidge, a consensus top 100 player out of Southfield High School, committed to Michigan today. Brundidge, a powerful scoring guard who stands at 6-1, ranks 98th overall on Rivals, 68th on Scout and 33rd on ESPN for the Class of 2011. Dylan over at UMHoops has a great commitment article, which also features highlights from Brundidge’s sophomore season:
Brundridge is the type of player who has no fear taking the ball to the basket, and he shows some very good finishing ability once he gets there. He also has college range (although he is a little streaky from distance), and should be a great complement to Michigan’s shooters when he gets to the basket and creates his own shot. This is a great pickup for John Beilein; Brundridge was also considering Michigan State, Miami (Fl.), and Syracuse, and this marks the first major in-state recruiting victory for Beilein. I get the feeling this won’t be the last.
