- AnnArboor.com writes, "How did these kids get so smart, with a the 'brain drain' and lack of 'cool cities' in Michigan? Four seniors have committed to play at Ivy League schools: Flint Powers point guard Patrick Lucas-Perry to Penn, Dexter's 6-8 David LaMore to Cornell, Novi's 6-8 Samer Ozier to Columbia and Okemos do-it-all guard Mack McKearney to Dartmouth. Another all-stater, 6-7 Jackson Lumen Christi senior Dan Chilcote visited the Air Force Academy last week, but continue to have Columbia under consideration. The NYC school has hit up Michigan hard, and is looking for its second score with Chilcote. He'd likely take the East Coast prep school fifth year to add some muscle to his versatile wing forward game."
