Devin Asiasi will transfer from Michigan after his freshman season, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Asiasi, a California native, was a contributor for the Wolverines this season, playing in all 13 Michigan games, and catching two passes for 19 total yards and a touchdown.

According to Detroit News’ Angelique Chengelis, Harbaugh says that Asiasi leaves Michigan in extremely good standing with the program.

As a member of the 2016 recruiting class, Asiasi was a four-star prospect and the No. 3 tight end in the country.

It stands to reason that Asiasi will likely transfer closer to home, although we don’t know where exactly he is looking. He committed to Michigan over Alabama, UCLA, and Washington as a recruit, and it should be noted that one of his close friends and former teammates is UCLA’s Boss Tagaloa.

John Calipari was not a fan of the reporter’s question.

Kentucky took on Missouri in a matchup of SEC teams Tuesday night. Many expected Kentucky to dominate the game, but Missouri came to play.

At the half, Kentucky led by just one point, and the Missouri crowd was fired up.

When the first half ended, Missouri fans started chanting “Cal, you suck.” Sideline reporter Laura Rutledge tried asking a question about the student section, and Calipari wasn’t having it.

Coach Cal gave Rutledge the cold shoulder, but that’s a question that doesn’t need an answer.

Wilson announced a top seven of: Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State, and Virginia Tech. It doesn’t get too much more impressive.

Wilson is the No. 10 outside linebacker in the class of 2018, and the No. 7 recruit in the state of North Carolina.

Numerous other programs are after Wilson as well, including Auburn, Florida State, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Wisconsin. He’s definitely one of the most sought-after linebackers in this class.

Jay Williams had high praise for one college basketball point guard.

Jay Williams was a guest on Michael Rapaport’s podcast when he said Lonzo Ball could be the next Jason Kidd. The talented UCLA point guard has been drawing high praise from many around the NBA, and William’s comments just add to the hype.

According to Ball’s dad, Lonzo is already better than Steph Curry.

We’ll have to see that one to believe it.

Here’s Jay Williams on the potential of Lonzo Ball:

Jason Kidd was one of the best point guards to ever play the game, so Ball has a lot to live up to.

Aidan Hutchinson, a four-star defensive end out of Dearborn, has committed to his home state Wolverines.

Hutchinson, who plays for Divine Child High School, announced the big decision via Twitter moments ago.

His full announcement:

“I would like to thank my family for guiding and supporting me along this recruiting process. Also, a special thanks to all of my Divine Child coaches for assisting me in this journey. I am so humbled and grateful to all the schools that have shown interest in me. But, I am ready to end this recruiting process and focus on this upcoming season. I am blessed to say that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of Michigan #GoBlue”

247Sports ranks Hutchinson No. 4 in the state of Michigan and No. 9 among all strong-side defensive ends in the country.

Hutchinson is the third player to make a pledge to Michigan’s 2018 recruiting class, joining fellow blue chip recruits Emil Ekiyor and Otis Reese, who both made their decisions back in 2016.

Scott Pagano transfer update: the Clemson defensive tackle has narrowed down his extensive list to the five schools that will be receiving official visits.

On Monday, 247Sports‘ Ryan Bartow reported that Pagano had cut his list of 37 programs down to seven: Arkansas, Cal, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Texas. Of course, the former Tigers defensive lineman can only take five visits, so he now has that list.

Arkansas, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Texas will be hosting Pagano in the coming weeks. Bartow, once again, has the scoop.

Clemson graduate transfer defensive tackle Scott Pagano (Honolulu, Hi./Moanalua) said he will officially visit Notre Dame March 24, Oklahoma March 31 and Arkansas April 7.

Pagano has completed his official visit plan by lining up a trip to Texas for April 14 and Oregon April 21.

Pagano, who leaves a loaded defensive tackle rotation at his national champion alma mater, is one of the most coveted grad transfers of the off-season.

Jim Boeheim is not happy with a recent article in Sports Illustrated, which says that he may delay his scheduled retirement after next season.

SI’s Pete Thamel wrote about the coming coaching transitions for four of the ACC’s top basketball powers: Duke, Louisville, North Carolina, and Syracuse. The easiest answer to the question should be Syracuse, which has already named long-time assistant Mike Hopkins the program’s head coach designate. However, Thamel is not convinced that Boeheim will go so quietly into the night after the 2017-18 season, as is the current plan.

The feeling around Boeheim’s circle is that he wants to remain as coach and plot his own exit. And if that’s the case, it’s hard to imagine him exiting cleanly. Whether that amounts to anything remains to be seen, as it would be a horrible look for the university to reverse course in the wake of the NCAA issues. But there are few people who think Boeheim will go quietly.

Boeheim harshly rebuked Thamel’s theory, calling it “pure speculation.”

From Syracuse.com:

“The only thing he got right in that story,” said Boeheim, “is the spelling of my name.”

[…]

“It’s all speculation,” Boeheim insisted during a telephone call. “Pure speculation. There’s nothing in that story that is remotely, in any way, true.”

Jim Boeheim refused to go further into it, but Thamel is far from the first person to speculate that the legendary Syracuse coach may not step away from the program he built so easily, although he does have his handpicked successor in Hopkins set to take over the Central New York power.
