We're about a month away from the start of the season and at this pace one has to wonder if the Hoosiers will have any healthy bodies for the season. I kid, I kid, but the Hoosiers have been dealing with a surprisingly high number of injuries and will hopefully get everyone back to full health prior to November.
Indiana held their Hoosier Hysteria event this weekend and it was eventful to say the least. Unfortunately for the Hoosiers, the injury bug that's taken residence in Bloomington was present once again. The Hoosiers have already seen Troy Williams and Luke Fischer suffer injuries in the off-season, now the team is dealing with an injury to freshman point guard Stanford Robinson. Robinson unfortunately suffered a knee injury towards the end of the scrimmage and according to the News-Sentinel, the freshman is currently out indefinitely. Also of note, Noah Vonleh sat out the scrimmage as he's currently dealing with an ankle injury suffered during practice last week.
Besides the scrimmage, the Hoosiers also had several other events at Hoosier Hysteria. Two of these events included a three point contest and a slam dunk contest. Yogi Ferrell was the winner of the three point shooting contest and you can see the video footage here. Ferrell ended up making 30 of his 50 three pointers to win the event. The dunk contest was won by Devin Davis because of his final round score, though the consensus seems to be that Hanner Mosquera-Perea stole the show:
Also, more highlights from Hoosier Hysteria can be seen below:
Michigan added another player to their 2014 class this weekend as 6'8 forward D.J. Wilson committed to the program. It didn't take long for Wilson to decide on the Wolverines as he was just offered this weekend during his official visit. Wilson is a three star recruit that also held offers from California, USC and Gonzaga and is ranked just inside Rivals Top 150 recruits for 2014. Wilson has shown an effective perimeter game and has strong ball skills, but he'll need to bulk up for the collegiate game as he has a tendency to get pushed around. UM Hoops offered a detailed scouting report of Wilson here and seems to think he's a relatively under the radar recruit that should fit well in Beilein's system.
Wilson's commitment to the Wolverines helps lessen the sting of four star target Donte Grantham choosing Clemson instead of Michigan to kick off the weekend. Quite a few people thought that Michigan was the front runner for the four star combo forward, leaving a number of people surprised by Grantham's announcement Friday morning.
