Isaiah Todd decommits from Michigan, will pursue pro opportunities

Five-star forward Isaiah Todd announced that he was decommitting from Michigan and signing an agent today.

“This was a tough decision for him, but he just feels like this is what’s best for him and his development,” Todd’s mother Marlene Venable told SI. “We love Michigan and Juwan (Howard), but, at the end of the day, he has to make the best decision for him.”

“My dream has always been to play in the NBA,” Todd told SI. “I just feel like this route will help my game grow even more. I want to be as prepared as possible when the times comes. This was a no-brainer for me.”

The news comes hours after five-star guard Joshua Christopher committed to Arizona State over Michigan. The Wolverines now have two open scholarships in the 2020 class. Junior forward Isaiah Livers is also testing the waters in the NBA Draft process.

    I feel like Clark Griswold just as he opened up his bonus envelope and saw it was the Jelly of the Month Club.

    Players transfer because they want to transfer. You can’t stop them from transferring. I keep seeing this idea thrown around.

    Can’t we all just go back to Thanksgiving when nobody had Coronavirus and Teske was dunking all over Gonzaga?

    I’m not going to lie and say that the developments of the past 24 hours are not disappointing, but on the other hand I’ve long harbored an uneasy feeling about pursuing roster construction with transient players who (very likely) have more interest in personal pursuits than team goals. I feel at peace, as a fan, knowing that if the buy-in wasn’t there with these guys then it’s probably best that they went elsewhere and the program can build with the guys who are fully committed.

    Also, I have no doubt Juwan will amass plenty of NBA-level talent over the coming years to enable him to run his NBA-level schemes that he likely prefers and is more comfortable with. He will find his recruiting sweet spot the longer he operates at this level.
