ESPN’s Jeff Goodman first reported that Michigan forward Kameron Chatman is planning to transfer and MLive’s Brendan Quinn confirmed the news on Tuesday afternoon.
Michigan confirmed the news later this afternoon.
“Kam is a wonderful young man with the potential to mature into a fine college player,” John Beilein said in a statement. “We have enjoyed coaching him over the past two years and wish him nothing but the best.”
“I honestly don’t think I could have had a more quality life experience than I did in Ann Arbor,” said Chatman. “I am incredibly grateful for my two years at Michigan. I would like to thank Coach Beilein and his entire staff for taking a chance on a small town kid out of Portland. I know my experience has inspired others as I will take all of my lessons learned to continue my pursuit of becoming the best man and player I can. Go Blue!”
Chatman averaged 2.8 points and 1.4 rebounds per game for his career and hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer that helped push Michigan into the NCAA Tournament.
Chatman would be the fourth departure for the Wolverines, who also lost Spike Albrecht (Purdue), Aubrey Dawkins (UCF) and Ricky Doyle (TBD).
