By now, most Michigan basketball fans know the name Jett Howard.

The youngest son of Wolverines’ head coach Juwan Howard, Jett has made a name for himself as one of the top recruits in the class of 2022. The four-star wing checks in as the 39th-ranked prospect in the 247Sports composite, while also ranking top 10 nationally at his position and within the state of Florida.

Howard transferred to IMG Academy ahead of last season, where he played alongside Michigan signee Moussa Diabate and 2022 Wolverine targets Eric Dailey, Jarace Walker and Jaden Bradley. He put together an impressive junior season, establishing himself as one of the country’s top outside shooters.

On Friday, Howard released a top seven of Michigan, LSU, Vanderbilt, NC State, Georgetown, Tennessee and Florida. He has locked in official visits to NC State on Sept. 4 and Ann Arbor on Sept. 11, according to HoopGate.

The 6-foot-7 Howard is assuredly at the top of the Wolverines’ 2022 wish list. In addition to Juwan Howard’s advantage as Michigan’s head coach, his brother Jace is a sophomore on the team. And with point guard Dug McDaniel and center Tarris Reed already in the fold, Howard will fill a need in the 2022 class as a reliable scorer who can play all three wing positions.

It’s difficult to envision Howard ending up anywhere besides Ann Arbor, but it appears he’s in no rush to make things official. As a top-40 recruit, he’ll look to get as much of the blue-chip prospect recruiting experience as possible — and rightfully so.
