Michigan receives pledge from Wake Forest transfer guard
Michigan continues to add guards through the NCAA transfer portal.
Tuesday, former Wake Forest guard Chaundee Brown announced that he has committed to Michigan. He is a former four-star player out of Orlando, Florida who hit the transfer portal following the 2019-20 season with the Demon Deacons.
Brown was also considering Gonzaga, Illinois, LSU and Iowa State. He just completed his junior season at Wake Forest but has not graduated, so he will not be classified as a grad transfer.

However, Brown could still be eligible as early as the 2020-21 season because of Wake Forest’s decision to terminate Danny Manning as head coach. He will need a waiver approved from the NCAA to play during the upcoming season.
Brown is the third guard to transfer to Michigan during the offseason. The Wolverines have also received verbal commitments from Purdue’s Nojel Eastern and Columbia’s Mike Smith.
Last season, Brown averaged 12.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists while shooting better than 45 percent from the floor with the Demon Deacons. For his career, Brown is averaging over 10 points per contest.
