Former Michigan Wolverines point guard David DeJulius made the decision on his future on Thursday afternoon, announcing his transfer to the University of Cincinnati. DeJulius will have two years of eligibility remaining, though it remains to be seen if he will have to sit out this year or not. The NCAA is reportedly set to vote on a one-time transfer waiver in May that will determine this.
DeJulius entered the transfer portal last week ahead of Michigan’s commitment from grad transfer Mike Smith and winding down recruitment of five-star guard Josh Christopher, who surprised everyone and committed to Arizona State on Monday night.
DeJulius posted a farewell message to Wolverines fans earlier this week.

DeJulius played in all 31 contests for Michigan this past season, averaging seven points and 1.5 assists per game. He was a four-star recruit and 107th-ranked prospect in the country in the class of 2018, per the 247Sports composite rankings.
DeJulius was a part of John Beilein’s final recruiting class that featured Ignas Brazdeikis, Brandon Johns, Colin Castleton and Adrien Nunez. Only Johns and Nunez remain on the roster heading into next season, as Brazdeikis made the jump to the NBA after his freshman year and DeJulius and Castleton deciding to transfer out this year. No word yet has been given on where Castleton may end up or the timeline surrounding his decision.
