Old friends reunite not far from Ann Arbor.

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Indiana vs Michigan Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan forward Kameron Chatman is transferring to the University of Detroit Mercy, joining former Wolverine assistant Bacari Alexander, who is now the program's head coach.

The news was first reported by the Detroit Free Press.

Chatman will have to sit out the 2016-17 season, but will have two remaining years of eligibility starting in 2017-18.

Chatman was a former four-star prospect and had his ups and downs while in Ann Arbor. He played in 60 career games for the Wolverines and averaged 3.2 points and two rebounds per game.

His signature moment at Michigan came in the Big Ten Tournament in an upset win over Indiana, where he hit a buzzer-beating 3-point shot from the corner that help the Wolverines punch their ticket to the NCAA Tournament.

Chatman is the fourth player to transfer out of the program this off-season and third from the class of 2014. Aubrey Dawkins and Ricky Doyle will be heading to Central Florida and Florida Gulf Coast, respectively. Spike Albrecht elected to join Purdue as a graduate transfer.
