The Michigan Wolverines officially added two more players to their 2017-18 roster with the addition of a pair of preferred walk-ons.

Naji Ozeir, a preferred walk-on from in-state, committed to the program back in July.

The 6’8” freshman spent the past year playing at the prep level where he averaged 18.9 points and 8 rebounds per game while shooting 56% from the field. Ozeir has also participated in international play, playing for Lebanon’s National U17 team in 2015 and U18 team in 2016.

“I’ve always known I wanted to go there, but it didn’t really come into factor until June when we started talking back and forth,” said Ozeir.

Also joining the Wolverines this winter is another preferred walk-on in Luke Wilson. The 6’0” guard is from Colorado, playing two seasons at Boulder High School. In his senior season he averaged 19.2 points, 3.8 assists and 3 rebounds per game. Most notably he hit an impressive 91.8% of his free throws.

While Wilson is a Colorado native, he grew up as a Michigan fan and his older brother graduated from Michigan in 2015.
