The Michigan Wolverines are currently making a push to be one of the teams to beat for a national championship this season, but the future is arguably even brighter for Juwan Howard’s program.
Howard and his staff were able to ink what currently ranks as the No. 1 recruiting class in the country during the early signing period in November. Three of the six signees have been bestowed with one of the great honors at the high school level of the game.

The McDonald’s All-American rosters were announced on Tuesday afternoon with a trio of future Wolverines selected to the team. Those players were five-star forwards Caleb Houstan (No. 8 overall in 247Sports composite) and Moussa Diabate (No. 18) and four-star shooting guard Kobe Bufkin (No. 42). That made Michigan the school that appeared the most among the signees on the roster.
This marks the first time since 2002 that Michigan has any signees appearing on this list, let alone three of them. That took place when Daniel Horton was about to start his college career. Isaiah Todd was named to this list last year but ultimately backed out of his commitment to play in the NBA G-League.
Michigan’s top-ranked class also features four-star point guard Frankie Collins (No. 51), four-star guard Isaiah Barnes (No. 104) and three-star forward Will Tschetter (No. 146).
All six Michigan commitments are signed and will be in Ann Arbor this summer to begin their careers as Wolverines.
