Angelo Brizzi, a three-star point guard in the 2021 class, put Michigan in his top eight list Tuesday evening, along with Arizona, Villanova, Cal, Northwestern, Colorado, Dartmouth and Davidson.
The 6-foot-3, 170-pounder from Warrenton, Virginia is primarily being recruited by Phil Martelli, but Juwan Howard is putting in work on the kid, as well.
The Wolverines offered Brizzi a scholarship back on May 8, just two days before he was offered by Villanova, Marquette, LSU, Georgetown and Iona.
“A great academic and athletic school. The staff is great,” Brizzi told ZagsBlog about his feelings toward Michigan. He also said he does not currently have a timetable to commit and is “just trying to feel out the situation with everything going on currently.”
According to MaxPreps, Brizzi averaged 20.3 points, 6.6 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 3.2 steals per game during his junior season, leading Highland High School to a 28-3 record.
Brizzi is a prospect we spoke about on Future Brew this week as one of Michigan’s top targets at the point guard position in this cycle, along with five-star Jalen Warley and five-star Jaden Hardy.
The Wolverines have three players committed to their 2021 class — four-star wing Isaiah Barnes, four-star guard Kobe Bufkin and three-star forward Will Tschetter.
Brizzi is the No. 19 point guard, No. 4 player in Virginia and No. 117 overall player on 247Sports’ composite rankings.
