Friday was a busy day for the Michigan basketball team as the Wolverines new head coach, Dusty May, landed not just one, but two commitments.

The first came from Justin Pippen, the son of NBA legend Scottie Pippen. He's a 2024 recruit and has tons of potential for the future. Soon after, the Michigan Wolverines secured the second commitment of the day from Rubin Jones, a 6-foot-5 guard/wing from North Texas.

Jones is a likely starter for Michigan basketball next season. Pippen is a guy who could eventually turn into a mutli-year stater and it was a promising start for the new head coach.

The coaching staff did a good job of dividing up talent. Michigan football will hold its annual spring game at 12 PM EST on Fox. Joel Klatt will be on the broadcast, along with Charles Woodson and Jake Butt.

According to Clayton Safie of The Wolverine.com, Michigan football is dealing with some injuries. Myles Hinton, Giovanni El-Hadi, Cole Cabana, and Jack Tuttle are just a few of the guys dealing with something. So expect some players to be limited.
