Looks like DeShawn Sims, Rivals #39 overall player in the 2006 basketball rankings, has decided to hop on over from Detroit to Ann Arbor to play his college ball.
He was long rumored to have been heading to Michigan, but now it's public. He joins K'len Morris from Grand Blanc as 2006 commitments for the Wolverines with possible additions of Tom Herzog and Tory Jackson in the not too distant future to make a quartet of talented instate kids for Tommy Amaker's next class. With excitement building for a good year on the court, it's nice to see the recruiting back in top form after last year's disappointments from Malik Hairston and Joe Crawford.
For what it's worth, Sims is now Rivals highest rated player in 2006 headed to a Big Ten school not named Ohio State.
