Top 5 Basketball Prospect Makes Second UM Visit

5 Star power forward Delvon Roe made his second visit to Ann Arbor last weekend to take in the Michigan/Michigan State game.

You read that right. Second visit.

Roe made his initial visit to Ann Arbor over Labor Day weekend when Vanderbilt was in town along with several other high 4 Star and 5 Star talent (which included Ohio 7'0" Center Kenny Freese). After his first visit Roe was more than happy to talk with reporters. During that time he publicly mulled a second visit.

And then he followed up on it.

Roe came into town last weekend on another unofficial visit to hit up one of Michigan's "open gyms" with the current Michigan team. Making things more interesting was the official visit taken by Alex Legion over that same weekend. Legion apparently not only took in the game and the open gym, but spent some time selling Roe on Michigan. BTW, Alex Legion is climbing up my list of favorite recruits along with Mallett. He's selling everyone on Michigan that gets within earshot. (No word on whether Harris made an appearance.) Regardless, I'm sure playing around with guys like Legion, Petway and Abram made an impression.

I know it's early, but two visits by the #5 recruit in the country in two month's time is an impressive recruiting job by Amaker. You may commence overhyping your expectations. HOWEVER, please also bear in mind Roe is just a junior with an impressive list of suitors.

His prospects list reads like a who's who of college basketball: Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Kansas, Louisville, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, and... um... Michigan. Rivals has everyone listed at medium interest, but Scout has Michigan and Illinois listed as his favorites. Roe has already taken unofficial visits to OSU, MSU and is scheduled for a UNC visit in the near future. Even so, Michigan is the only school he's visited twice.

And that's pretty cool.
