Grad transfer Justin Pierce picks North Carolina

William & Mary graduate transfer Justin Pierce announced his commitment to North Carolina today.

Pierce chose North Carolina over Michigan and Notre Dame.

Michigan still has at least one scholarship to fill after Jordan Poole announced he plans to stay in the NBA Draft. The Wolverines most likely will have two spots open with Ignas Brazdeikis leaning toward remaining in the NBA Draft.

Michigan has been linked to German wing Franz Wagner, 2019 guard Nah’Shon Hyland along with other graduate transfer targets including Oakland’s Jaevin Cumberland and Texas A&M Corpus Christi’s Kareem South.

    Bummer for Michigan but hopefully we get Wagner. Eli is starting to look more appealing haha

    This is the guy who’s shooting dropped off this past year, right? So the last thing Michigan needs is another guy who can’t shoot very well. I don’t see this as a loss.

    i know we cant land EVERY recruit and the top 5 recruits in every class, but its amazing to me that our development track record still doesn’t speak louder

    the fact that pierce mentions business school and off the court as advantage carolina is also laughable

    I wouldn’t sweat the drop off much. Wrist injury. We really needed the offense. This sucks. Please Franz!

    Here’s a possibility based on no info…

    Is it possible he didn’t get accepted into Michigan’s MBA program? Awfully hard for anyone to get that done without professional experience.
