According to Adam Zagoria, 2012 basketball recruit Mitch McGary will announce his decision on Thursday. The announcement will take place on ESPNU's Recruiting Nation, which airs at 5 p.m. (Eastern Time).
McGary's list of finalists includes Michigan, Duke and Florida. Although things can quickly change in college basketball recruiting, McGary is expected to commit to Michigan during his announcement. The Wolverines have emerged as the frontrunner for McGary for the second time in the last month, and with an announcement just days away, they are in excellent shape. Of course, Michigan went from being the leader to simply being one of a few schools in contention for him last month, but it appears the Wolverines have again pulled away from the pack.
If McGary does commit to the Wolverines, they will have quite the recruiting class for 2012. Glenn Robinson III and Nick Stauskas are already committed to Michigan for 2012, and they are both four-star recruits. Adding a five-star recruit in McGary to the class would give it consideration for a top 10 or even top five ranking.
