CBB Review’s Ethan Carbone goes in-depth on the top 30 college basketball recruiting classes. Next up are the Michigan Wolverines who come in at 11.
The Michigan Wolverines bring in the 11th-ranked recruiting class according to 247Sports Composite rankings. This includes center Tarris Reed (35th), small forward Jett Howard (42nd), point guard Dug McDaniel (82nd), small forward Gregg Glenn (120th), and power forward Youssef Khyat (N/A).
What does each player bring?
Tarris Reed: 6-10 center
Reed comes in as someone who is expected to be the man who will eventually take over for Hunter Dickinson. He’s a dream post-player in the Big Ten with the ability to box out for rebounds and put up easy shots off the glass. On defense, he will bully whoever comes in the paint. Overall, Reed does his job to perfection.
As a freshman, he will back up the All-American Dickinson. However, he will play a crucial role this season and for the next four years.
Jett Howard: 6-7 small forward
Howard comes in not as a daddy’s boy but as a lethal offensive weapon. He has the ability to score from anywhere on the court using a mixture of skill and athleticism. If needed, Howard can play the 1-3 as he can pass fluidly and set up his teammates, and score from all three levels.
As a freshman, he will start and be a reliable option on offense. Howard’s full potential is being one of the best players in the conference and potentially a first-round NBA Draft pick at some point.
Dug McDaniel: 5-11 point guard
The prototypical smaller point guard, McDaniel is very fast, athletic, and quick thinking. He gets the ball to his teammates with ease for open jump shots. McDaniel can also make space for himself in the lane and plays very efficiently.
McDaniel will be the backup point guard and will learn behind the veteran Jaelin Llewelyn, helping set him up for an eventual starting spot at the one.
Gregg Glenn: 6-7 power forward
Glenn is your stereotypical Michigan Wolverines forward who loves to play at the rim but can easily make jumpers as well. He’s able to get the ball and take it to the rim with ease. When double teamed he makes the right decisions. Glenn can hold his own while rebounding and playing defense.
From the start of his college basketball career, Glenn will come off the bench. He will soon become a reliable option for the blue and maize.
Yousef Khyat: 6-8 power forward
Playing as a modern-day power forward Khyat is able to shoot, defend, and pass making him set up to help control the future of Michigan Wolverines basketball.
Coming in already developed from his time in Europe, Khyat will play as a backup as a freshman but will increase in playing time throughout his career.
