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.

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.

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.
