For the first time since Nik Stauskas, Michigan will be adding a Canadian wing to their roster.

Ignas Brazdeikis has committed to Michigan for the 2018 class.

Brazdeikis is a four-star recruit that John Beilein offered a scholarship back in April.

The 6-foot-7, 210-pound guard was thinking about reclassifying to to the 2017 class but elected against it.

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

He's a stretch forward that has a lot of strength and is a pure scorer from multiple spots on the floor. Brazdeikis can pass the ball well and has good range from deep.

Brazdeikis joins Brandon Johns, David DeJulius and Taylor Currie in the 2018 class.

Here's some highlights of the Canadian forward:

Other recruitment news:

Shortly after Brazdeikis committed to be a Wolverine, another forward put Michigan in his final two school choices.

Colin Castleton slimmed his list down to just Michigan and Illinois as of Friday night. The four-star forward is the 13th ranked player in Florida and is No. 116 nationally according to 247Sports.

The Daytona Beach native has not selected a date that he will make his final decision.

The 6-foot-10, 215-pound is a former Purdue commit that also had offers from Florida, Florida State, Xavier, Clemson and many more before electing to pick between the Wolverines and Illini.
