Michigan announces signing of Jalen Wilson, Cole Bajema

Michigan formally announced the signing of 2019 commitments Jalen Wilson and Cole Bajema tonight.

Here are Beilein’s comments on both signees:

“Cole is a talented player and his passion for Michigan made him a great fit,” said Beilein. “We are excited that his family roots led him back to the State of Michigan. We love it when kids come running through the door to be a part of such a great university. Cole showed a skill that evolved each time we watched him play. He is a versatile player that we are looking forward to developing in our system. With his willingness to work on and off the floor as well as in the classroom makes him a perfect fit.”

“We are thrilled to have player of Jalen’s caliber join the program,” said Beilein. “He is a strong, physical wing with the ability to score in a variety of ways. Jalen and his family love our university and that was important to us too. His versatility gives him the ability to play multiple positions on offense, and his strength allows him to be able to come in and be an impact defender. He has continued to improve in many areas since we have been recruiting him. With his attitude, work ethic and skill set we cannot wait for him to arrive.”

    Wilson reminds me of another recent Wilson.

    Can’t wait to see these two in uniform next year.
