This past week, the Michigan Wolverines opened the doors of the Crisler Center in order to preview this year’s team to the media. Head coach John Beilein, who enters his ninth year in Ann Arbor, expressed a great deal of optimism while talking about the progression of players such as sophomore forward Ricky Doyle and sophomore guards Aubrey Dawkins and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman.

Of course, he’s hoping for big years from senior shooting guard Caris LeVert, junior wing Zak Irvin, senior guard Spike Albrecht and junior point guard Derrick Walton, Jr.–each one of them is coming off an injury, and their recoveries will directly impact the outcome of the upcoming season.

So far, Albrecht says he’s a “full-go,” while LeVert, Irvin and Walton, Jr. continue to improve.

Take a few minutes to catch the Today’s U interviews and video from 2015 Michigan media day in Ann Arbor.

And last but not least, Wolverines freshman forward Moritz Wagner of Germany. So far, so good, says Beilein. The 6’9,” 225-pounder is learning the ropes and quickly adapting to his new lifestyle in America.

He even mentioned fall Saturdays and football.
