‘I can’t wait to get started’: Jaelin Llewellyn acclimating well to Michigan

By now, Juwan Howard is well-accustomed to transfer point guards. 

Long gone are the days of backcourt stability with Zavier Simpson, a luxury that Howard enjoyed in Year 1 of his tenure and one he still cites frequently. 

Rather, for the third consecutive season, Michigan is poised to start a graduate transfer at point guard. This time, it’s former Princeton standout Jaelin Llewellyn. 

“It’s been a smooth transition,” Llewellyn said with a smile at Michigan Media Day on Friday. “There’s another level of comfort, being here for a couple of months. I just can’t wait to get started.” 

Michigan will rely heavily on Llewellyn, who averaged 15.7 points per game with the Tigers last season. A team’s success is often dictated by its point guard, a riskier proposition when the point guard is new. It’s also a proposition that the Wolverines are well-versed in.
