Michigan basketball recruit Austin Hatch will remain in school another year, planning to graduate in 2014. Hatch, a forward from Canterbury (Fort Wayne, Ind.) is still recovering from injuries he received in a June 2011 plane crash that killed his father and stepmother.
He received a special waiver from the Indiana High School Athletic Association, according to WANE-TV in Fort Wayne and will reclassify as a recruit in the 2014 class.
That gives him two more years of high school ball and allows him to recover athletically and academically from the time he has missed due to severe head injuries from the crash. He averaged 23.3 points a game as a sophomore. Michigan coach John Beilein said in a May interview with the Detroit Free Press that he would honor Hatch’s scholarship whenever he arrives.
