New Michigan basketball coach Juwan Howard has made his first known offer to a recruit, and it’s a 2020 5-star guard.
Joshua Christopher, from Bellflower, California was the recipient of the offer.

The 6-4 guard is the No. 6 overall prospect in the 2020 class and is the No. 2 shooting guard. Under John Beilein, Michigan didn’t try recruiting many five stars, but with Juwan Howard in control that trend may be changing, and the fact Howard offered a 5-star as the first offer during his tenure indicates Michigan will be going after the best players in the country.
When asked what type of things he needs to work on heading into his senior season, Christopher said “just overall efficiency, being able to shoot the ball at a high clip of course, being able to get my teammates more involved. All of my senior guys that are D1 are leaving so I’m going to have to make plays for my guys and set them up pretty easy. So just facilitating is a big role I want to step into.”
