Michigan coach John Beilein has offered Class of 2018 four-star shooting guard Cormac Ryan.

Ryan, who stands at 6-foot-5, plays for Middlesex Magic AAU team, which helped develop current Michigan shooting guard Duncan Robinson. Ryan was on campus at Michigan for their College Practice Camp this weekend and turned out to be one of the best athletes to attend.

“He has a great handle and a quick trigger on his jumpshot, but he’s also a vastly underrated athlete,” Dylan Burkhardt of UMHoops said. “He can elevate quickly and did several times in drills and game action. He went head-to-head with Poole in the opening game of 5-on-5 play and more than held his own against the Michigan commit as his team won the game comfortably. Ryan is still very skinny and needs to add weight to his frame, but it is easy to envision him in Michigan’s offense.

Ryan has offers to play for Indiana, Florida, Stanford, Northwestern, Boston College, Davidson, Rice, St. John’s, Rutgers, DePaul, Tulane, George Mason, and now Michigan.

"They were amazingly consistent," Ryan’s AAU coach Mike Crotty Jr. said of the Michigan coaching staff. "Nobody watched us play more. So while actually offering (a scholarship) may take a little bit longer, when they know how interested they are, their devotion to showing that is second-to-none."

Ryan will be a junior at Milton Academy in Massachusetts. He is ranked as the 107th overall player in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports. He is the 23rd-best shooting guard and the No. 3 player in his home state.
