Class of 2018 four-star shooting guard and small forward Ignas Brazdeikis has picked up an offer to play for Michigan.

“Coach [John] Beilein called me today and told me the news,” Brazdeikis told TheWolverine.com.

Brazdeikis has offers to play for Baylor, Canisius, Cincinnati, Denver, Memphis, Michigan, Niagara, Oregon, SMU, Southern Utah, St. Bonaventure, Tennessee, UNLV, USC, and Vanderbilt.

The 6-foot-7, 210-pound athlete is thinking about reclassifying to the 2017 class, but that decision will not be made until the summer.

“I am just working on getting better but the big thing for me this year will be the EYBL; just showing everyone that I am a good player,” he said.

From Eric Bossi of Rivals: “Ignas is a stretch, combo forward type who is a pure scorer. He's a strong kid who has very good range on his jump shot and he's very tough as well. He's not the most athletic kid in the world but has post game, passes well and is very competitive. Because we don't rank players outside of the states in the Rivals150 he's listed as an unranked four-star prospect, but he's comparable to a top 50 type player.”

From Corey Evans of Rivals: “In an era where everyone loves multi-dimensional ballplayers, Brazdeikis fits that mold perfectly. The 6-foot-7 junior, who is capable of scoring from all three levels on the floor, should see his stock soar this summer. However, it does seem that Vanderbilt and Pitt sit in the best spot for him and a possible late reclassification into 2017 would bolster their chances heading into next year’s college basketball season.”
