Michigan has added another recruit to their Class of 2013.
Andrew Dakich, the son of ESPN college hoops analyst and former head coach Dan Dakich, will enroll in Ann Arbor as a preferred walk-on starting next year.
“An unbelievable day in Ann Arbor and after speaking with my family about it, I have decided to attend the university of Michigan!,” Dakich tweeted. “Can’t thank all the people who helped influence me on my decision. I just want to win national championships and that’s what Michigan is all about.”
Andrew had received interest from a number of mid-major programs around the country, according to Rivals, but was not holding any scholarship offers. But John Beilein seems to find success with point guard recruits that no one else knows about. Trey Burke went from being a three-star recruit to the National Player of the Year. Spike Albrecht was a one-star recruit and then scored 17 in the national title game’s first half. We’ll see what happens with Dakich.
I’m mostly curious to see whether or not having his son on a Big Ten team will affect Dan Dakich’s integrity when it comes to the DD Index next season.
