David DeJulius surprised many Michigan Wolverines fans when he decided to enter the transfer portal earlier this week, but it appears things are moving quickly on where he might decided to go next. According to Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers, the guard has named a list of four schools to pick from in Iowa State, Cincinnati, Marquette and Missouri.
The report also states that over 20 schools reached out to DeJulius in the aftermath of his decision to depart Ann Arbor.
As friend of the site and Michigan Daily reporter Daniel Dash points out, Marquette in particular may be an interesting school to watch given a former high school teammate in Greg Elliott and former AAU teammate in Jamal Cain already on the roster. No indication has been given as of this point as who might be the leader for his services.
DeJulius left Michigan having appeared in every game this past season, averaging seven points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in just under 21 minutes per game. He primarily played the two-guard position, but has plenty of experience playing the one and taking on ball-handling duties.
DeJulius was not the only transfer out of the program this week with fellow 2018 class member Colin Castleton also entering the portal this week. With their two departures and Ignas Brazdeikis entering the 2019 NBA Draft after last season, only forward Brandon Johns and guard Adrien Nunez remain from that recruiting cycle.
The Wolverines moved quickly to add guard help to the roster this week, landing the services of Columbia grad transfer Mike Smith on Friday afternoon. We took an extended look at what Smith’s commitment means to the Wolverines here.
