Bajema is listed as 6-foot-7 and 175 pounds. He comes out of Washington and many figured that he would be joining the Huskies for his college career. He is currently unranked as a prospect by 247Sports. Other interested schools included Eastern Washington, Oregon State, Portland, and Virginia among others.
The story on Bajema’s recruitment is a relatively simple one. He had a blistering hot summer that garnered him plenty of high-major interest. John Beilein ended up putting out an offer to Bajema and he committed soon thereafter.
With Bajema in the fold, Michigan’s 2019 recruiting class is now ranked 20th nationally and fourth in the Big Ten. Bajema joins another talented wing player in Jalen Wilson. The two figure to provide some quality depth as players like Charles Matthews look toward the pros.
No one can be sure how Bajema will progress once he arrives at Michigan, but Wolverine fans should be excited about adding another talented piece to the roster.
