The Michigan Wolverines continue to scratch and claw on the recruiting trail at the pursuit of five-star talent, but one of their targets has officially eliminated them from consideration. Class of 2021 guard Trevor Keels dropped his top three schools on Wednesday, which features Duke, Virginia and Villanova as the final teams in contention for his services.
Keels is currently ranked as the top shooting guard in the 2021 class and the No. 15 player nationally, per the 247Sports Composite.
247’s Jerry Meyer said the following about his skill-set:
“Tremendous physical strength for a shooting guard. Has length as well. Plays a power game but can score from all three levels. Solid ball-handler. Good passer. Has the strength to be a better rebounder. Adequate defender.”
This was not much of a surprise, so it does not register as a big loss for the Wolverines. Right now, their efforts are mostly focused on Harrison Ingram (who is set to decide soon) and the big men on the board in Efton Reid and Charles Bediako.
Michigan’s 2021 recruiting class currently ranks No. 5 in the nation with three four-star commitments in point guard Frankie Collins, shooting guard Kobe Bufkin and wing Isaiah Barnes. They also have brought in three-star forward Will Tschetter. Most believe that they will look to add two more players to the current crop of recruits that have been brought in.
