One of the top players in the 2020 college basketball recruiting class is combo guard Nimari Burnett. The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder from Chicago is being recruited by a lot of blue blood programs, including the Michigan Wolverines.

Juwan Howard and the Wolverines got some pretty good news from Burnett on Monday, when they made it on his top 12 list.

He also included Louisville, Oregon, UCLA, Stanford, Alabama, Marquette, Arkansas, Arizona, Wake Forest, Auburn and Illinois on his top list.

With Michigan only getting two players in the 2019 class, and with Jon Teske, Zavier Simpson and Austin Davis graduating after the 2019-20 season, the Wolverines can take several players in the 2020 class. Burnett would certainly be a welcome addition, along with Michigan’s lone 2020 commit, 4-star guard Zeb Jackson.
