Michigan must have enjoyed its first game in the Barclay's Center this year vs. West Virginia, because the Wolverines have signed on to play another game there this upcoming season vs. Stanford.

Per Matt Vogrich's twitter account, Michigan senior big man Blake McLimans will be using his fifth-year transfer privileges to move down the road to Miami of Ohio for his final year of college ball. McLimans never broke the starting lineup after redshirting for his first year on campus, but we still thank him for all he has done for the program (as well as marvel at the fact that his first year on campus saw Michigan post a 15-17 record).

A few of Michigan's recruiting targets were at the Nike Elite Youth Basket all League in Los Angeles. UMHoops has all the details:

John Beilein was in Los Angeles throughout the weekend while LaVall Jordan also did some recruiting at the EYBL. Michigan's three outstanding offers in the class of 2014 - Devin Booker, Trevon Bluiett and Vince Edwards - were all in action as well as a number of other notable targets.

Stop by there and check out more including notes on each player's performance and some other great notes from the event.
