The former Wake Forest Demon Deacons Chaundee Brown officially committed to the Michigan Wolverines back in May. Brown is not a graduate transfer, and was expected to have to sit out unless his waiver requesting immediate eligibility was approved by the NCAA. Jon Rothstein of CBS reported late Friday night that his waiver request was granted and Brown is now immediately eligible for the 2020-21 season.

Transfer from Wake Forest.
Brown played three seasons with Wake Forest in the ACC. During his time there, Brown saw plenty of playing time as he averaged more than 20 minutes per game. He finished last season averaging 12.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game. Brown is lauded for having a well balanced game. He can produce for his team on the offensive end, but can also haul in the ball on the defensive glass. That’s a key skill for a player, even on the wing, in the Big Ten.
Brown is widely expected to become a start for the Wolverines this fall now that he is eligible for this season.
