Mitch McGary dropped almost as much as Glenn Robinson III rose in the latest ESPNU rankings. Michigan maintained its strong class in the latest edition of the ESPNU Top 100 high school basketball rankings released Tuesday morning.
McGary (Chesterton, Ind./Brewster Academy) was the No. 2 prospect in the country in the last rankings, but fell to No. 21 -- and lost his five-star status in the process. The 6-foot-10, 225-pound power forward is still Michigan’s highest-rated recruit. However, he is now listed as the No. 6 power forward in the ESPNU Top 100.
Meanwhile, Robinson (St. John, Ind./Lake Central) took a huge jump. He leapt from No. 52 all the way to No. 26. The 6-foot-6, 200-pound small forward is now the No. 3 prospect in Indiana -- one behind McGary -- and is considered the No. 6 small forward in the country.
Swingman Nik Stauskas (Mississauga, Ont./St. Mark’s) also made a jump in the rankings, but he didn’t make the astronomic leap Robinson did. Stauskas moved from No. 83 to No. 79 on the list, but his movement upward continues improving Michigan’s Class of 2012.
