Juwan Howard has been busy on the recruiting trail since taking over for John Beilein as the head coach of Michigan’s men’s basketball program and extended his latest offer on Monday night, this time in the form of point guard Kennedy Chandler out of Memphis, Tennessee.
Chandler posted the development to his personal Twitter account:

Chandler is currently ranked as the third-ranked point guard and the 28th-best player in the class of 2021, according to the 247Sports Composite. Chandler is the state of Tennessee’s top-ranked recruit for his cycle.
Howard has only been on the job for a few months, so a recruiting “style” has not quite developed, per say. However, the one thing that is being made clear that elite talent is a priority. Michigan’s recruiting board on 247Sports shows four and five-star prospects up and down the list in both the 2020 and 2021 classes.
Howard’s biggest win on the recruiting trail thus far has been securing the services of four-star wing Franz Wagner to finish out the 2019 class and pair with another four-star forward in Cole Bajema. The Wolverines have one player committed for the 2020 class so far in four-star guard Zeb Jackson.
