Michigan basketball lands veteran forward via grad transfer out of Seton Hall
Michigan basketball is adding a veteran piece out of the transfer portal, landing a graduate transfer from Seton Hall on Friday.
The player is Tray Jackson, a 6-foot-9 forward from the Pirates who spent the last 3 seasons with the Pirates. Jackson originally began his career as a 4-star prospect for Missouri. The move is a bit of a homecoming for Jackson after playing his high school career in the state of Michigan.
Jackson made his commitment to Juwan Howard and the Wolverines per Joe Tipton with On3 Sports.

Jackson is an interesting addition after 90 career games played and only 18 starts. He averaged 6.4 points per game while at Seton Hall and just under 16 minutes per game.
A key aspect of Jackson’s game is his ability to stretch the floor from the forward spot. He is a career 36% shooter from 3-point range and shot 38% from range while with the Pirates.
The Wolverines have a lot of pieces to make up for after losing Jett Howard and Kobe Bufkin to the NBA Draft and Hunter Dickinson to the transfer portal. We’ll see if Jackson can play a key role for the program next season.
