    The funny thing with Gottfried is that people thought the stunt worked with the biggest recruit he landed - Dennis Smith Jr. - then it came out in that trial last year that one of the shoe company bag men funneled $40k to his dad to get him to go to State.

    Doesn’t need to fly far, Franz is flying into AA today.

    If LJ stays (more than likely will), I think this one just became realistic. Wow.

    Beilein's departure should really help Butler's chances, if Wagner plays college ball.

    Is this real? I saw it on a Michigan board. Is he really about to land in Ann Arbor? If so, LJ needs to make contact ASAP and get him to Indy before he heads home.

    Is anyone monitoring the planes between AA and Indy yet? How do we know if the plane is going to meet Wagner or for an interview?

    Quick look through Twitter, but there are conflicting reports if he was at Michigan on 5/11. Guess he could still be stateside if those reports are true. Also saw it mentioned he is staying in Germany and is exploring a contract with Alba.

    That was from a faulty tweet. What got lost in the German translation said that his German club is very open to discussing a contract with Franz but nothing has taken place yet and nothing is off the table on Franz playing college ball. He most definitely was on Michigan's campus this weekend, have no clue whether he is still stateside.

    Seems like a long shot/wishful thinking. Do we even know if Butler has been in contact with him in the last month or two or if he's ever even been on campus?

    Not to mention the fact that (unless he's a complete stud) there isn't a TON of immediate playing time for him with Tucker, McD, Nze at the 3/4 spots.

    Yes he is a complete stud, would be the equivalent to a 5 star recruit. He just won best player under 22 this year at the age of 17 . shot 60% for 2, 38% for 3 (117 attempts) and 89% from the free throw line this season for professional Alba

    Wagner currently on an official visit at Michigan. Maybe he'll end up being able to both play at Michigan and for LaVall.

    Hmm. And if he started the official yesterday, perhaps he was there with Lavall. Tin foil hats everyone. Tin foil hats time.

    I could be totally wrong, but I could not imagine UM or Butler would every allow or want the negative blow back of having a potential prospect meeting with a potential coach when the coach has another job. This feels like an ethics issue that UM has tried to be above. But it is college ball.

    Agreed. But I also wouldn’t put it past anyone for a “coincidence”

    Reread the articles posted on here, and Franz said he could be taking visits yet this summer. With him just visiting Michigan, I wonder if he plans to visit anywhere else soon. The three schools originally mentioned were UM, Stanford, and us. Seems like the HC he would have the most familiarity/comfort would be LJ at this point and his brother Mo also gave LJ an endorsement in the 247 article. Anyone know if hes still an option or if we've closed the books on 2019 additions?

    Based on most recent articles from last week make it seem like he's only considering Michigan or Alba Berlin even with Beilein out of the picture.

    I'm hoping the staff knows something we don't and Franz is the reason we still have an open schollie.
