Five-star Isaiah Todd decommits from Michigan, will play overseas

It’s another brutal blow for Michigan basketball recruiting.

A report from Sports Illustrated’s Jason Jordan says five-star forward Isaiah Todd will not sign with the Michigan basketball program and will instead sign with an agent and turn pro.

It’s the second huge blow to the Michigan program, coming about 12 hours after five-star guard Josh Christopher spurned the Wolverines for Arizona State.

Todd is expected to play overseas for a year before heading to the NBA.

Todd chose not to sign with Michigan during the early signing period, sparking concerns that he was still considering a pro career right away. He is the No. 13 overall player nationally in 247 sports composite rankings.

The loss of Todd opens up another scholarship for Michigan, which now has two available.

It remains to be seen whether three-star commit Jace Howard will now end up on scholarship or if his father, Michigan coach Juwan Howard, will opt to use those scholarships on other recruits or grad transfers.

It doesn’t appear likely that either David DeJulius or Colin Castleton will return to the Wolverines, despite the scholarship openings.

Michigan still boasts the top ranked recruiting class in the Big Ten and sits at No. 12 nationally.
