Wolverines coach John Beilein doesn't usually land the top-of-the-ranking, uber-recruits. Instead, he brings in next-tier guys and applies his nearly unmatched ability to develop them into lottery-caliber talents. That's why Michigan was able to absorb the losses of Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. from its record-setting 2012-13 NCAA finalist and barely skip a beat a season later.
