“They’ll probably hit me up once a week, see how I’m doing and tell me about the system and how I’d fit in the system,” Bieniemy, who Beilein compares to Caris LeVert, said.
The 6-foot-3, 170-pound athlete is ranked No. 119 in the 2018 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He is the 28th-best shooting guard and the No. 8 ranked player in the state of Texas. Bieniemy has offers to play for Creighton, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State.
