According to Rivals' Chris Balas ($), German basketball recruit Robin Benzing, who had committed to Michigan earlier this year, will not enroll at Michigan. The 6'10" forward did not qualify to play for a Division 1 team by NCAA initial eligibility requirements.
This is pretty disappointing, considering Benzing would have added depth to this years' incoming class. As a 6'10" forward with deep shooting range, Benzing fit the mold of a big man in John Beilein's offensive system. On the bright side, this does give UM an additional scholarship to use in a future class.
