Michigan added a commitment from five-star wing guard Tyus Battle this afternoon, but the Wolverines weren’t done. Hudsonville forward Brent Hibbitts pledged to John Beilein and his staff as a preferred walk-on.
“I want to thank every school and coach that has recruited me in this process. It was truly a blessing. At the end of the day, my heart led me to one school,” Hibbitts wrote on Twitter. “With that being said, I am very honored, and blessed to say that I have officially committed to The University of Michigan!!!”
Hibbitts, a 6-foot-8 shooter, averaged 17.3 points, 11 rebounds and 2.5 blocks and shot 48% from the floor as a senior. Hibbitts took recruiting visits to Vermont and American and chose the Wolverines over several mid-major offers from other schools.
