Harvard graduate transfer guard Bryce Aiken made his school decision on Thursday afternoon, choosing Seton Hall over the Michigan Wolverines, Maryland and Iowa State. He will be immediately eligible to play.

Aiken, a New Jersey native, was injured for most of the 2019-20 season and played in only seven games, averaging 16.7 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists. His best season came as a junior in 2018-19 where he racked up 22.2 points per game and 2.9 assists.

Michigan is also in the running for another grad transfer in Columbia guard Mike Smith, who averaged 22.8 points per game with 4.1 points and 4.5 assists this season. No timetable has been given on his decision, but the Wolverines and Arizona have been mentioned as potential suitors.

Where things stand today, Eli Brooks would likely be the front-runner to start at point guard for the Wolverines next season with true freshman Zeb Jackson in line for time, as well. How this pecking order plays out may depend on who — if anyone — Michigan lands via the transfer portal.
