Earlier this month, the Michigan Wolverines put out a key offer in the 2023 recruiting cycle. Juwan Howard and his staff decided to offer 2023 prospect Javonte Taylor.
After showing out at the @pangosaacamp last week, 2023 5⃣⭐️ small forward JJ Taylor has picked up offers from Kentucky, Duke, Gonzaga, Kansas, Michigan, Michigan State, LSU, Florida, Arizona, and more. @jjtaylorXXlll pic.twitter.com/BnvE2WVvOi— BallerTV (@BallerTV) June 17, 2021
Taylor comes out of Chicago, Illinois and is currently rated as a five-star prospect and the best player in the state of Illinois by 247Sports. The recruiting site also lists him at 6-foot-8 and 185 pounds. Along with Michigan, he also currently has offers from Arizona, DePaul, Duke, Florida, Gonzaga, and Michigan State among others.
Michigan currently has no commitments in the program’s 2023 recruiting class, though the Wolverines have recruited exceptionally well since Howard arrived on campus, including the nation’s top class in the 2021 cycle. Adding a prospect like Taylor would certainly get things rolling in 2023 and build what could be a special class in Ann Arbor. Of course, any decision will likely be some time off as Taylor currently has no Crystal Ball selections on 247Sports.
