Dynamic athlete... Improved his jump shot a great deal... Didn't play a lot, sort of got lost in the shuffle, but should help this program a great deal.

Hopefully he can be Anthony Grant's Jordan Sibert

Not sure if the UofM board is always nicer to their transfers than we tend to be here, but a lot of nice words were said about Ibi in this thread: http://forum.umhoops.com/t/ibi-watso...erring/3638/13

"Well, that should dull all the transfer speculation.
I always hate to see any Michigan players transfer. I think Ibi was a valuable asset and would have continued to help us win.
I wish him well at his next stop. I think he will do well."

Whenever a player transfers or a coach leaves (Archie), the majority of this board acts like a scorned ex towards them.

Off-season workouts are underway for the Michigan men's basketball team, and Ibi Watson is already turning heads when it comes to metrics.

The 6-foot-5 sophomore wing apparently set a new team record in the vertical leap on Friday, jumping 44 1/2 inches to touch 12 feet, 1/2 inches, strength and conditioning coach Jon Sanderson tweeted out.

To help put this in perspective, the vertical jump record at the NBA Draft combine is 46 inches, set by Memphis' D.J. Stephens in 2013.

Man I wish we had him this year, but he'll be a nice addition next year with his great athleticism and a year to develop. Mikesell, Landers, Toppin (?), Policelli. I'm not sure we'll have a real stud level athletic specimen for that team, so this is what was needed. Add in 2 junior guards in Crutcher and Davis, I like the look of that team next year.

Nicely done.

Hopefully he can be Anthony Grant's Jordan Sibert
Jordan Sibert only averaged 3.0 points a game during his sophomore year at OSU. I think it's a legit comparison.

While his stats are entirely unimpressive at UM: https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb...-watson-1.html
The one thing that stands out to me is his increase from 0 offensive rebounds and 8 DRB in his freshman season to 11 ORB and 10 DRB his sophomore season. Illustrates an improvement in size. I like when guys (especially guards) are good offensive rebounders.

I'm probably reading into it too much because of the low sample size, but I thought that was interesting.

That UD originally recruited him probably didnt hurt. Familiar with the school and academic/program goals. Reaching out, even when its Grant, is a hand he had seen before. Didnt have to start from scratch. Ohio kid. Good fit. Sibert literally couldnt get on the court at Ohio State. His shooting percentage was terrible when he did. And yet name another UD jumpshooter in the last 20 years at UD that made more clutch Js. The Fort Wayne bomb, 24fter vs Syracuse w/50 seconds left, and cold-blooded knife-twister vs Boise will live forever. They didnt just change outcomes. They changed seasons and changed UD MBB history as it will be told.

Hopefully Watson has that same upside and just needs a platform and playing time to show himself.

good to have someone who comes from winning programs at the high school and college level in the locker room. AG mentioned that'll he'll be good for the younger players on the roster.

Big character and chemistry upgrade with a guy like Ibi

I like this a lot. The upside is huge and you can't play it safe with every scholarship. Great athlete, improved his 3pt % a great deal this past season and has a year off to keep working on it.

He also spent the last 2 years on a team that was having great success and was 40 minutes away from winning a National Championship this year. That type of experience will help him, even if he wasn't getting a lot of minutes.

I like that he has a Sit Year. Seems jacked in upper body fromone picture.

Good size at 6 foot 5". On paper it doesn't look like a great pickup.

But paper don't play da games! Hope it works out.

Welcome Ibi!

Check out Sibert's stats from tOSU. His transfer didn't look good on paper either.

There's a reason he went to UM...they don't recruit projects.

Ibi has a vertical leap of 44.5".

That is some very serious hops, better that Chris Wright if you can imagine that.

Certainly agree stats don't always tell the story.

Sibert was a top 50-75 recruit in the country. If hadn't broken his leg in high school there was legitimate thought that he might have been a borderline McDonald's AA caliber player

Watson was a 3 star recruit who was ranked around 200 in the country who had two power conference offers, Tom Crean's Indiana and Michigan.

With his athletic ability and combine measurables if he's skilled at basketball he's a top 10 pick.

I can hear it now on national TV. Starting at guard is “THE MICHIGAN transfer Ibi Watson”. Or maybe it doesn’t matter as much since it is only Michigan and not an in-srate rival like THE Ohio State University?

Probably not as often. Don't recall Vee being constantly referred to as the "Georgetown transfer", or Josh from Bradley

One other detail. I think his former coach at Pickerington is a guy who played HS hoops in Dayton, 15-20 years ago. If that's the case, I'm thinking he probably put a good word in for Dayton basketball in general.

I understand your drift on this, but actually you certainly can teach hops. The training the HS kids undertake these days goes a long way to adding to their vertical. My grandson is a conditioned Senior all district football player in HS, and he and a whole gaggle of his teammates under 6' can now touch the rim. I was shocked at the progress they made with lifting and squats and weighted jumps. They also work on explosiveness.

I genuinely have no idea what we can expect out of Ibi on the offensive side of the ball. He's got the size and athletic ability to really help out on containing dribble penetration on defense. He's pretty intriguing on the defensive side of the ball being a bigger guard/wing who could probably defend multiple positions.

I have no idea how much zone AG wants to play but a 6'5 guy with bounce is a good fit for the top of a zone.

Point well taken, guys can certainly improve but if you have a standing vertical leap of 40”+ you have the man upstairs to thank, not training.
