07:17 AM ET 06.27 | Michigan's freshman arrived on campus over the weekend, and point guard Derrick Walton already has plenty of pressure on him. [Most] Michigan fans are hoping Walton -- Michigan's Gatorade Player of the Year in 2013 -- will be able to fill the void left behind by perhaps the best point guard the program's ever known. Just one thing, though. John Beilein doesn't expect Walton to be the next Trey Burke. He expects him to be the first Derrick Walton. "We're very limited on comparisons," Beilein said. ... "Unpack your bags, you're here for four years unless something happens that's really extraordinary -- like what happened with [Tim Hardaway Jr.] and Trey. We're not a stopover, we're a destination. And that's the approach we use."

And never will be . . . but with Beilein at the helm I suspect the program is in good hands. I expect them to contend in the B1G for a long time to come.

Will be interesting to see what happens with Duke after "Coach K" retires.
