Michigan beat Notre Dame on Saturday and Florida on Tuesday. As it turns out, an unofficial visit to…
Al Horford Commits!
"He just called today and made it official."
I came down to see you guys at the Glass City Tournament and watched you guys win a few games. Al was pretty good that day. A couple months later at the Nike All-American camp he was great. What do you attribute that growth to?
"Al is a super hard worker," Oden said. "He really works on his game. He was already a really good back to the basket player. Now he's added a nice 15 footer to his game. He can rebound and block shots and he's grown at least a solid inch over the summer.
"His knees were hurting over the summer; the last time they hurt that bad he grew three inches. So the kid is still growing. When it's all said and done there is no doubt in my mind that he'll be 6-10 or 6-11."
Do you think that by the time he gets to Michigan he will be a kid that they can throw right into the fire?
"Absolutely. By the time he gets to Michigan he's going to be outstanding," Oden said. "He can put the ball on the floor better now and he's hitting the 15 foot jumper. He's just going to keep improving."
