The Michigan Wolverines got even more good news on the basketball front Friday night, as they announced that Wake Forest transfer Chaundee Brown will be immediately eligible to play this upcoming season:

The former top recruit has experienced mixed results during his first three years of college, but a change of scenery could be exactly what he needs. This transfer waiver is huge for Michigan, as Brown could possibility fit in at three different positions and gives the team another veteran presence in the lineup.

Brown’s immediate eligibility is not a huge surprise given the NCAA’s relaxed stance on recent transfers. Add in the fact that all athletes are receiving an extra year of eligibility due to the impact of Covid-19 on the 2020-21 seasons, and it became a matter of if, not when for Brown to be able to play this year.

Michigan will have some new faces on the roster this season, but the talent is there to make some noise in Juwan Howard’s second season in charge. Add in the fact that the Wolverines are primed to bring in a monster recruiting class next year, highlighted by Caleb Houstan, who committed earlier on Friday, and it looks like all arrows are pointing up for this program right now.
