Michigan offered Jalen Wilson, one of its top targets for the 2019 class, on Sunday evening.

Wilson, a Denton, Texas native, is a four-star small forward and is ranked No. 28 at his position in the 2019 class according to the 247Sports Composite. 247Sports has him favored for Michigan at 89 percent right now.

He received the official scholarship offer after his unofficial visit to Ann Arbor this weekend. Beilein does not offer players until they are through their sophomore year of high school, he has went to see them play in person and they visit campus. Now, Wilson has done all of that.

Wilson put U-M on his final decision list with five other schools — Baylor, Marquette, Kansas, Oklahoma State and UCLA — last week in a tweet before receiving an official offer.

The Wolverines don’t have a verbal commit for the 2019 class to this point, but now Wilson joins four-star point guard D.J. Carton as the most likely targets.

The 6-foot-6, 185-pound forward averaged 16.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists at Guyer High School last season, reportedly.

In the 2018 class, which overall ranked No. 11 in the country, U-M added four-star forwards Brandon Johns, Ignas Brazdeikis and Colin Castleton to their roster.

Here are some video highlights of Wilson:
