Taylor Currie, a three-star power forward from Clarkston, decommitted from Michigan this past weekend. Currie originally committed to the Wolverines back in June before reclassifying to the 2018 recruiting class.
The in-state product is ranked by 247Sports as the 199th best recruit in the 2018 class and the 44th best small forward, as well as the eighth best Michigan prospect. With Currie’s recruitment now back on, it seems he’s open to either staying in the 2018 class or switching back to the 2019 recruiting class.
The move opens up a scholarship for John Beilein in 2018, with the coach already boasting an impressive recruiting class even after the loss of Currie. As of right now the 2018 class includes four-star forwards Ignas Brazdeikis and Brandon Johns, as well as four-star point guard David DeJulius. That class is currently ranked by 247Sports as the sixth best class nationally and third in the Big Ten, behind only Indiana and Michigan State.
With Currie reopening his recruitment, the 6’8” will likely see plenty of teams take interest in the near future.
As for Michigan, they should be perfectly fine as they already have two highly rated forwards as a part of their 2018 class.
