Stuart Douglass, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound guard from Carmel (Ind.) has found the perfect marriage for his style of play. The Hoosier State guard is Big Ten bound.
Douglass told Rivals.com on Wednesday afternoon that he has given a verbal commitment to the University of Michigan. The Wolverines offered him a scholarship on Tuesday night and he was quick to jump on the offer.
"I was a little surprised at first because I knew (John Beilein) wanted to think about me some more but I guess he made up his mind and I couldn't be happier," Douglass said.
Douglass, a noted shooter, fits Beilein's style of play. Being able to play at Michigan and play in an offense that fits his strengths was hard to turn down.
"I've always watched his teams at West Virginia and always thought that it would fit me perfectly," Douglass said. "Now I'm playing for him...I've seen what he has done with players like me before. It is exciting."
Douglass said he also considered offers from Evansville and Harvard. Colorado was also in the picture.
The Indiana native visited the Ann Arbor campus last week and will officially visit again on Sept. 22. Douglass joins New York center Ben Cronin in the class of 2008.
