Zeigler News: Ernie and Trey

While the expected four-year deal between Central Michigan and men's basketball coached has reached a verbal agreement, no deal has been officially signed as Ernie has been in Louisville this week for an All-Star weekend for Trey, who was taking part in an exhibition contest with other top high school basketball stars around the nation. Zeigler is returning to Mt. Pleasant today and the deal should be made official early this week.

As for Trey and the big question of where he is going, he is expected to make his decision this week and the plans are for him to hold a press conference at Mt. Pleasant High School to make his announcement. Some speculation surfaced earlier this week that UCLA is out of the running, but I haven't had that confirmed by anyone in the know. It does seem that CMU could be picking up steam with the extension to his father, but only time will tell. Certainly if Trey decided to come and be a Chippewa, it would be the biggest recruit to sign with CMU since Dan Majerle.

Good news for CMU ... however, "biggest recruit ... since Dan Majerle." That's kinda sad, isn't it? I was there when Majerle was recruited, and yes he was a "big recruit" but nobody expected the player he evolved into. Says something about CMU basketball when our biggest recruits come from Northern Michigan, and not Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland ... or even Lansing or GR.

Well, from what I have been told Majerle had some options, but certainly a kid that is being recruited by UCLA and Michigan State and even had Duke in the mix for a while is a big time land for CMU should he choose to stay in Mt. Pleasant.

No, it's not sad and it doesn't say anything about CMU that this is their biggest recruit in a long time. Recruits this big rarely, if almost ever, go to a "mid-major" college. The ones that do, go to schools that have a long track record of playing with the big guys. Stop hating.
