Frankie Collins The Fifth Michigan Commit To Sign Letter Of Intent
Wednesday at midnight was the beginning of the early signing period in college basketball, which will run through next Wednesday, Nov. 18. Michigan Wolverines basketball's 2021 commits are becoming signees, as letters of intent have been rolling in throughout the day.
As of 9 a.m. ET Thursday, five of the six pledges in the class have inked with the Maize and Blue, with four-star shooting guard Isaiah Barnes' letter slated to come in Friday.
U-M's six-man class sits at No. 1 in the Rivals.com national recruiting rankings.
Henderson (Nev.) Coronado Four-Star Point Guard Frankie Collins
Collins' letter is now in, meaning head coach Juwan Howard officially has his point guard of the future. Collins made his pledge back in August, picking Michigan over fellow finalists Arizona State, Auburn, Georgetown, Kansas, New Mexico, USC and Vanderbilt.
Michigan Hoops ... Frankie Collins' letter of intent is in. That makes a (fab) five ... (sorry). Isaiah Barnes tomorrow rounds it out.— Chris Balas (@Balas_Wolverine) November 12, 2020
Stewartville (Minn.) High Three-Star Power Forward Will Tschetter
Tschetter was the first to officially join the U-M family this morning, signing at home in with family present. He averaged a whopping 33.6 points and 10.2 rebounds per game last season and could be a force down low for the Wolverines.
Montverde (Fla.) Academy Five-Star Small Forward Caleb Houstan
The No. 11 overall player in the country, Houstan pledged to the Wolverines on Oct. 30, choosing U-M over offers from Duke, Gonzaga, Michigan State and other programs nationally. He is the last five-star to sign with U-M since Ignas Brazdeikis in 2018.
Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy Four-Star Power Forward Moussa Diabate
Diabate committed just in time to sign on Wednesday, with his Monday, Nov. 9 pledge coming as a surprise to many. He chose U-M over offers from Kentucky and others. Diabate attends IMG Academy along with Wolverines' head coach Juwan Howard's son and top 2022 target Jett Howard.
Caleb Houstan, Moussa Diabate and Will Tschetter have signed and sent their letters of intent. Five of six will be in today (Isaiah Barnes Friday). Unbelievable class for Juwan Howard.— Chris Balas (@Balas_Wolverine) November 11, 2020
Grand Rapids (Mich.) Christian Four-Star Shooting Guard Kobe Bufkin
Rivals.com's No. 60 player nationally and the highest-ranked player in the state for 2021, Bufkin committed to U-M on July 10 over offers from Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and other major programs. Bufkin signed his letter of intent on Wednesday at his high school.
