Chase Simon, who was one of the top 10 Players in Michigan's loaded 2007 class, decided to transfer to Detroit today. Out of high school, Chase was being recruited by high majors, and opted to go with Ernie Ziegler at Central Michigan, who is one of the best mid-major recruiters in the biz. Chase decided to transfer from Central Michigan last year, but has landed at Detroit with Ray McCallum. Detroit will quickly shoot to the top of the Horizon League with the players they have acquired since McCallum took over the reigns at U of D. Remember, they also signed 7'3 Jason Bennett who was a Top 100 prospect out of high school in 2006, Eli Holman a 6'10 PF who played at Indiana last year, but red-shirted; also 6'7 Thomas Kennedy from Mott JC (Flint, MI), who was a JC All-America, as well as other good players. So it looks like the U-D Program is on the up and up.

Other Detroit Titan tidbits

-Detroit is in 6'9 2009 PF James Still's Top 5 along with Baylor, Purdue, Providence, and Marquette. Still, would be a Top 100 prospect nationally if he was stronger. He started the AAU season off with The Family, before switching over to the Detroit Fire.

-Detroit is also targeting in the 2009 class 6'3 Wing Bobby Lewis from Mott JC as well as 6'7 PF DeAndre Neely from Mott JC. Bobby played at Saginaw High while DeAndre played at Detroit Central. The Titans also like 6'1 SG Mike Green from Saginaw High in the 2009 class as well.

-The Titans main targets for the 2010 class right now is 5'9 PG Mike Talley from Melvindale Busineess & Tech, 6'10 C Corey Petros from Utica Eisenhower, and 6'7 SF Mohommed Conde from Belleville.
