The A2i Wheel and Tire Guestline presents 4-star tight end/defensive end Naseir Upshur of Philadelphia’s Imhotep Institute and hockey correspondent Joey Battaino during Friday’s episode of Sports in the Mitten with Adam Biggers and John Gustin.

A huge target for Michigan’s 2016 class, Upshur joins SITM to discuss his recruitment, feelings toward the Wolverines and his relationship with TE coach Jay Harbaugh. The 6’3,” 233-pounder has offers galore, even one from Michigan State

But is he interested in the Spartans?

Find out about that and more during the 15-minute interview with one of the nation’s top recruits.

Battaino joins the show to discuss the official hiring of Jeff Blashill as head coach of the Detroit Red Wings and possible movement regarding Tony Granato, the team’s associate coach. He also chimes in with his opinion on the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals between the Chicago Blackhawks and Tamp Bay Lightning. 

Battaino also delivers notes on the Arizona Coyotes’ lease problems and a little back-story on Cam Gibson, a multitalented athlete was just drafted by the Detroit Tigers.

Adam and John also talk about the NBA Finals, which are tied 2-2. The Cleveland Cavaliers have an uphill climb if they hope to avenge Game 3’s 103-82 loss and regain an advantage over the Golden State Warriors.

Pistons notes plus a new segment—“It Came From the Comments Section!"—and more during Friday’s podcast.
