Michigan adds international prospect to finalize 2022 roster
Youssef Khayat, one of the top international prospects in the 2022 cycle, has committed to Michigan.
Khayat, a 6-foot-9 small forward from France, was born in Lebanon and has thrived on the hardwood for a professional French league, Limoges.
“I chose the program for their experience of developing international wings,” Khayat told On3 Sports. “They have one of the best coaches right now in coach Juwan Howard who I grew up watching and admiring. The coaching staff made me immediately feel at home. And Michigan has one of the largest Lebanese community in the U.S. so that impacted for sure.”
Khayat chose the Wolverines over Xavier, Depaul and Wake Forest. He averaged 17.4 points and 7.7 assists per game in Limoges.
