Michigan turns up pursuit of Lebanese forward Youssef Khayat

Michigan landed a commitment from Joey Baker on Friday afternoon to bolster its shooting depth but Juwan Howard still has one scholarship left to work with before finalizing his roster.

That final scholarship might be used to add international talent to the 2022-23 roster.

Michigan is fully entrenched in the recruitment of 6-foot-9 Youssef Khayat. Khayat is a Lebanese forward who plays for Limoges CSP’s U21 program, in one of the better youth leagues in Europe. He’s excelled with his club’s youth team – 17.4 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game — and has also played a featured role with Lebanon’s national team at the senior level.

Here’s all of the intel we’ve gathered on Khayat’s recruitment and style of play along with some recent highlights of him in action with the Lebanese senior national team.
