The Michigan football program picked up a commitment last week from a former Florida State commit, and it appears Juwan Howard and the Wolverines are going to try to do the same for the basketball program.
Howard and the Wolverines just landed on yet another top list for an elite talent in the 2021 class, this time it’s the top list for five-star guard Bryce McGowens.

Michigan joins Georgia, LSU, Nebraska and Florida State on the top five list.
The 6-foot-5, 175-pounder plays high school hoops at Legacy Charter in Greenville, South Carolina. He originally committed to Florida State back in February, but reopened his recruitment on Oct. 8.
According to Jake Weingarten, Howard had a Zoom with McGowens last night. So despite already having two guards committed to its 2021 class, it’s safe to say Michigan’s pursuit of the elite prospect is real.
Both Crystal Balls are currently in favor of Clemson, but were made in the summer of 2019.
Michigan currently owns the No. 7 class in 2021, with commitments from four-star point guard Frankie Collins, four-star shooting guard Kobe Bufkin, four-star wing Isaiah Barnes and three-star forward Will Tschetter.
