ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's basketball sophomore forward Mitch McGary (Chesterton, Ind./Brewster Academy [N.H.]) has been named to the Preseason All-America second team by both Athlon Sports and Blue Ribbon College Basketball Preview Magazines.
With the addition of the two preseason honors, McGary has been named to a total of four All-America teams with USA Today (first team) and Sporting News (first team).
Athlon Sports, which had the Wolverines ranked No. 12, also listed McGary as a preseason All-Big Ten first team member, while fellow sophomore Glenn Robinson III (St. John, Ind./Lake Central HS) was named to the second team. The preseason magazine had U-M's incoming freshman class rated as the second-best among Big Ten teams.
Blue Ribbon, which had U-M ranked No. 9, named McGary and Robinson to its preseason All-Big Ten team and predicted a second place finish for U-M in the conference season. Blue Ribbon also listed U-M having the top-rated frontcourt and the third-best backcourt among all conference teams.
