John Beilein is losing one of his players from the 2018 recruitment class.

Three-star forward Taylor Currie decommitted from Michigan on Friday afternoon.

Curries original plan was to be in Ann Arbor for the 2019 season when he committed to Michigan on June 15th. A couple weeks later, Currie reclassified to join the 2018 recruitment group.

Currie now seems to be deciding which class he will end up in.

He was listed as a power forward or big man on the 247Sports Composite, where he was also ranked No. 199 in the nation and 44th at his position.

Currie would have been joining David DeJulius, Brandon Johns and Ignas Brazdeikis in the 2018 class. Johns and Brazdeikis are both able to play the four position in Beilein's offensive scheme.

This decommitment means that the Wolverines have space to potentially take two more prospects in the 2018 class, with Moritz Wagner possibly considering the NBA Draft after the 2017-18 season.

It was a "lifelong dream" according to Currie to play basketball at Michigan. Currie earlier said that Beilein thought the choice of reclassifying was a "great move" for him.
