“First and foremost, whew! I am so thankful and truly blessed for the NCAA, the Big Ten, Michigan and Coach (Juwan) Howard for giving me this opportunity,” Brown said in a statement. “I also want to thank Wake Forest, Coach (Danny) Manning and all the administrators and fans in Winston-Salem (N.C.) for giving me three unforgettable years. While it took some time, and while I was prepared for any outcome, you cannot believe the smile and how grateful I am.

“Since my arrival in Ann Arbor, I have been welcomed with open arms. I was ready to do whatever I could to help us succeed either on or off the court. All I know is I cannot wait to put that maize and blue jersey on and play with this group of guys.”

“We are indebted to everyone involved in this process,” said Juwan Howard. “From Warde (Manuel) to Elizabeth (Heinrich) and to everyone at Wake Forest, we are appreciative. We are certainly in unprecedented times; however, having a player with Chaundee’s experiences, skill set and leadership only adds to our versatility and depth this season.”

    the combination is quite nice. Brown is somewhat of a luxury to the 2020/21 roster in that he may not even necessarily be a starter but he could have been a guaranteed starter the next season if he didn’t get the waiver. But the addition of Houstan makes the following season lineup that much stronger and less in need of Brown on the wing.

    The new NCAA rules for this year says that the 2020-2021 season does not use up a year’s eligibility for anyone. So Chaundee Brown can play next year as well. In addition, if he does stay an extra year, he doesn’t count against the scholarship limit of 13. So he could play for 2 years!!
