Michigan basketball coach John Beilein has been out connecting with many prospects during the recruiting period that began Friday.
Over the weekend, coaches were allowed to make in-person evaluations, and Beilein was seen in New York to watch 2017 small forward Jamal Cain, who plays for Michigan’s The Family AAU team and Detroit Cornerstone High.

According to Roundball Rundown reporter Corey Evans, Beilein was in Mars, Pa., this morning to see 2018 three-star guard Robby Carmody.
On Monday, he met with 2017 small forward Brian Bowen, who plays at the La Lumiere School in LaPorte, Ind., and likely would be the best high school player in the state of Michigan if he still played in his native Saginaw.
