Class of 2024 recruits are a long way from making their college decisions, but that didn’t stop Michigan coach Juwan Howard from extending a scholarship offer on Friday. The Wolverines’ headman offered guard Christian Anderson Jr., a 5-foot-7, 115-pound guard out of the Lovett School in Atlanta.
Anderson, who just finished his freshman year of high school, comes from an athletic background. According to Sports Talk 2319, his uncle was an Olympic table tennis player and his father played professional basketball in Europe. Most notably, Anderson’s freshman year highlights showcase a promising jump shot. He reportedly scored 43 points in a single game at an Under Armour Association live period event last week. In his prior game, he scored 30 points in a loss against five-star 2024 forward Derik Queen’s team.

Duncan Robinson was in consideration for Team USA replacement roster spot
After it was announced Bradley Beal couldn’t travel to Tokyo with Team USA for this summer’s Olympic basketball games, former Michigan wing Duncan Robinson emerged as one of the potential replacements.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Grant Afseth, Robinson was among the replacement options considered. Robinson has flourished with the Miami Heat over the first three years of his career, averaging 13.1 points on 41% 3-point shooting this past season. The 27-year-old transferred to Michigan after beginning his college career at the Division III level and established himself as one of college basketball’s deadliest 3-point shooters.
Keldon Johnson was ultimately selected for Team USA’s open backcourt spot.
