Class of 2018 four-star shooting guard Jamal Bieniemy told Maize n Brew that he will be taking his official visit to Michigan this fall.
“Most definitely,” he said, regarding taking an official visit to Michigan. “Sometime in the fall.”
Brendan Quinn of MLive was the first to report the news regarding Bieniemy’s visit.
“They’ll probably hit me up once a week, see how I’m doing and tell me about the system and how I’d fit in the system,” Bieniemy, who Beilein compares to Caris LeVert, said.
From Katy (TX) Tompkins, Bieniemy is ranked No. 119 in the 2018 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He is the 28th-best shooting guard and the No. 4 ranked player in the state of Texas.
The 6-foot-3, 170-pound athlete has offers to play for Creighton, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State. Michigan coach John Beilein last visited Bieniemy on March 28th. On Tuesday, Michigan assistant coach Jeff Meyer stopped in to see the shooting guard at Tompkins.
“Growing up, I always liked Michigan,” he said to Orion Sang of UMHoops. “I don’t know — I live in Texas — but I always had a liking for Michigan. And then for them to recruit me, it’s just been like a dream come true.”
Bieniemy also believes that Purdue and Butler are close to sending him an offer.
