Former Michigan Wolverines big man Colin Castleton entered the transfer portal a few weeks back and now has his new school picked out, announcing on Sunday night his commitment to the University of Florida.

“First off I would like to say thank you to the University of Michigan for these past two years,” he said on Twitter. “I will be forever grateful for the wonderful memories I’ve had and the relationships built. After careful consideration with my family, I have decided to continue my athletic and academic career at the Univeristy of Florida.”

Castleton was a four-star prospect and the No. 128 overall player in the country in the 2018 class. In two years in Ann Arbor, he played around six minutes per game and averaged 2.3 points and 1.8 rebounds.

Michigan currently has one scholarship spot open for the 2020-21 season and has been keeping its eyes on the transfer portal for more help, Their entire 2020 recruiting class is now signed, which features three four-star prospects (Hunter Dickinson, Terrance Williams, Zeb Jackson) and a three-star signee (Jace Howard) and is currently ranked as the No. 8 class in the country.
