Report: UNC transfer Seventh Woods considering Michigan

According to a report by, Michigan is one of three schools being considered by North Carolina transfer Seventh Woods.

Woods is reportedly down to South Carolina, Michigan and Gonzaga.

Michigan is the newest school in the mix. He knows of Juwan Howard and met his nephew at a John Lucas Camp several years back.

“He’s kind of knew about me for a long time and just him reaching out was big,” Woods said of Howard.

He averaged 2.5 points, 2.1 assists and one rebound per game as a junior last season. The 6-foot-2 guard would have to sit out the 2019-20 season due to NCAA transfer regulations and would have one year of eligibility remaining. Woods was a top-50 recruit out of high school who gained notoriety for his highlight dunking ability. He’s never averaged more than 11 minutes per game during his three years at UNC.

    Well, for one, we may be in a “just need bodies” state, but also…Frank Martin and Mark Few are also interested, and I would trust their judgment.


    But Michigan needs bodies for this upcoming season.

    I guess the intriguing part is the willingness to walk on. Otherwise not sure how taking a non grad transfer for 1 year makes much sense.

    This makes no sense. If he was a grad transfer, maybe you could make a case just needing bodies but to sit one and play is kind pointless use of a scholarship. I would much rather have a player in the 2020 class who presumably is a much better player.
