It was a slow weekend in terms of relevant commitments.

But Michigan got a good one.

His name is Matt Vogrich -- a 6-3 guard from Illinois ranked as the 100th-best prospect in the nation by The deadly shooter is a significant commitment for the Wolverines because he's the perfect John Beilein recruit, i.e., someone who fits Beilein's system and also happens to be talented enough to be regarded on a national level. In fact, Vogrich is the highest-rated recruit Beilein has committed since taking over at Michigan in April 2007 and the highest-rated overall since he signed Da'Sean Butler for West Virginia in the Class of 2006.

Michigan now has three commitments for the Class of 2009.

The others are Darius Morris (a point guard from Los Angeles) and Jordan Morgan (a center from Detroit).

Michigan secures Top 100 prospect

A kid that can shoot, pass and screen in the Belein system will score a few thousand points in a four year career....

If this kid is really a top 100 level recruit and athletic as that indicates, he will be silly for one of the best system coaches in the world....

A good shooter becomes a world class shooter under beilien.....

Michigan secures Top 100 prospect

So what exactly is the John Beilein system?  A system that likes talented guards who shoot well?

I guess that's a pretty unique system up there in Michigan...
