After attrition, Michigan’s guards know there are minutes -- and shots -- up for grabs

  After attrition, Michigan’s guards know there are minutes -- and shots -- up for grabs ANN ARBOR -- Michigan attempted 1,894 shots last season.

Howard, entering his first season as a head coach — and college coach — was asked a general question about recruiting.

The question: "I know in the past you've spoken a lot about the adjustment required in recruiting. I was just curious how that transition has gone, with the early signing period approaching."

The answer: "It's been good," Howard said. "We're still grinding, plugging away. There are some guys out there who we've offered and we're in the running. Hunter Dickinson is one. Moses Moody is the other. Nimari Burnett — ooh, I don't know if I should be mentioning (that)."

  South Carolina football put on one-year probation by NCAA COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina's football program was placed on probation for the next year by the NCAA for a former assistant coach's impermissible actions in recruiting a sophomore prospect in the spring of 2018. South Carolina reported the infraction to the NCAA, which considered it a Level II violation. The school and the NCAA handled it through the governing body's negotiated resolution process. The probation, which runs until Oct. 21, 2020, does not include any restriction on postseason competition, according to the NCAA. The violation involved impermissible texts and in-person contact between the ex-assistant and the high school sophomore.

"No, you should not," said a Michigan spokesperson who was present at the news conference.

"Aw, shucks," Howard said. "That's (one of) the NCAA rules that I have to really get to understand and learn throughout this process. That's a part of the college coaching that's different from the NBA coaching. But no excuses. I will learn these rules."

NCAA bylaw 13.10.2.1 prohibits athletic programs from publicly discussing the recruitment of players, by name or indirectly, who have not signed a national letter of intent or financial aid papers. None of the three prospects Howard mentioned by name has signed paperwork. Afterward, the Michigan spokesperson said that they immediately notified compliance and athletic director Warde Manuel.

The NCAA rarely administers penalties for minor violations.

Dickinson, Moody and Burnett all have been high-priority targets of the coaching staff. All three prospects officially visited Michigan this fall.
