The Michigan Wolverines got some exciting news on Tuesday as fans learned Wake Forest transfer Chaundee Brown would be joining the program. The Wolverines had picked up momentum with Brown on the recruiting trail in the last few days and this just confirmed what many were thinking. It was great news for Juwan Howard and his staff moving forward.
During his three seasons with Wake Forest, Brown saw plenty of playing time. He averaged more than 20 minutes per game in each of his three years and finished last season averaging an impressive 12.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game. Brown is widely regarded for his balanced game. He can produce offensively, but can also clean up on the defensive boards when he needs to. It’s a nice boost for a guy playing on the wing.
For Michigan, this is a significant addition. The Wolverines had a number of open scholarships after suffering some recent roster attrition and fans were wondering how things would look in the years to come. And while Brown is expected to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules, he should provide a valuable boost in 2021-’22. It seems more than reasonable to think Brown could earning a starting spot then.
Juwan Howard and his staff still have a few more months to figure out the rest of the team’s roster, but this is a nice start. We’ll have to see how things sort out. Either way, Wolverine fans have to be excited about adding Brown to the roster.
