Report: 5-star forward decommits from Michigan to pursue pro basketball career
Juwan Howard had pieced together an elite recruiting class in his first season at Michigan, but it didn’t last long. On Tuesday, the Wolverines’ 2020 class took a massive hit.
According to a report from Jason Jordan of Sports Illustrated, five-star forward and No. 13 overall prospect Isaiah Todd has decommitted from Michigan and will pursue a career in the professional ranks. He was the highest-ranked player to commit to the Wolverines.
“My dream has always been to play in the NBA,” Todd told SI. “I just feel like this route will help my game grow even more. I want to be as prepared as possible when the times comes. This was a no-brainer for me.”
Howard has still assembled a strong class during this recruiting cycle, landing three four-star prospects who all rank inside the top 100 overall players in 2020. Still, the loss of Todd is quite a hit for the class.
Michigan had owned the nation’s fourth-ranked recruiting class and the No. 1 spot in the B1G with Todd in the class.
