Report: Charles Matthews sets Michigan visit

Kentucky transfer Charles Matthews will visit Michigan next weekend.

According to a report by CBS Sports, Kentucky transfer Charles Matthews will visit Michigan next weekend.

The 6-foot-6 wing guard will also visit Xavier, reportedly on June 16th and 17th. The Wolverines and Musketeers are regarded as a primary options for his services.

Matthews will have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will have three years of eligibility remaining starting in 2017-18.

Matthews is a former top-60 recruit from St. Rita High School in Chicago. He played limited minutes for Kentucky as a freshman, but was widely regarded as a plus-athlete and defender.

Wildcats fans regarded him as a potential defensive stopper in the mold of a DeAndre Liggins andΒ Kentucky coach John Calipari was sad to see Matthews go

“I know Charles’ best basketball is ahead of him,” Calipari said. “And while I’m saddened to see him go, I support his decision and will help in any way I can.”
