Days after Michigan lost a commit for 2018, John Beilein and the Wolverines picked up another commit to round out their class. Filling the open spot is 2018 guard Adrien Nunez.

Nunez is a three-star shooting guard from New York that is ranked by 247Sports Composite Rankings as the 268th best national prospect and second best recruit from the state of New York. Nunez had visited Michigan this past weekend and chose the Wolverines over Penn State, Boston College and a number of other programs. The addition of Nunez fills up Michigan’s 2018 recruiting class for now, with Nunez set to join a recruiting class that ranks in the top 10 so far.
“Ann Arbor felt like a real city which was comfortable for me being that I’m from NYC,” Nunez told Elevate Hoops. “The coaches were really straight forward and direct with how they see me on the team and my progression.”
Nunez, who didn’t have a scholarship offer prior to this summer, saw his stock rise quickly throughout the summer. Impressing programs at a number of events this summer, Nunez drew offers from Michigan, Penn State and Texas A&M in a hurry. The guard will spend a prep season at St. Thomas More before joining Michigan next year.
The guard should bring some size to the wing for Michigan and Nunez has shown to be a capable three point shooter, likely set to help Michigan spread the floor in the future.
Nunez joins four-star forwards Ignas Brazdeikis and Brandon Johns, as well as four-star point guard David DeJulius. The four man recruiting class jumped up a spot to fifth in the nation, including the second best recruiting class in the Big Ten for 2018.
