George Mason graduate transfer guard Justin Kier recently named the Michigan Wolverines in a list of seven schools from which he was trying to decide from. It appears that he has trimmed that list even more with Jeff Borzello of ESPN reporting that Kier will make his decision on Sunday from a final three that includes Georgia, Minnesota and North Carolina State.

Georgia, Minnesota and NC State are his final three, he tells ESPN.
Arguably the best available grad transfer. Averaged 14.5 PPG and 6.5 RPG in 2018-19.
Kier was given a fifth year of eligibility after missing the most of this season with an injury and entered the portal on the same day he received that news. He played only nine games this past season with a pair of injuries to his right foot, averaging 9.6 points and 3.6 rebounds. His best season came as a junior, where he averaged 14.5 points and 6.5 rebounds.
Michigan currently has one scholarship spot available for next season and have a trio of guards in Eli Brooks, grad transfer Mike Smith and incoming freshman Zeb Jackson. It stands to reason that they will continue to search the transfer portal for help at guard and see if there is anything worth kicking the tires on.
