Tennessee graduate transfer Olivier Nkamhoua has set a visit to Michigan, per a report from college hoops anonymous insider Trilly Donovan.
Tennessee transfer Olivier Nkamhoua will visit Michigan on June 2, per source.
He’s also scheduled to visit West Virginia on May 27.
UM was the long-presumed favorite if he did not go pro and remains firmly in the mix despite new suitors. No word on other visits at this time.

Nkamhoua averaged 10.8 points, five rebounds and two assists per game at Tennessee last year. His season was highlighted by signature 27-point scoring outbursts against Duke (in the NCAA Tournament) and Texas. The 6-foot-9 big man would provide a much-needed upgrade in the frontcourt for Juwan Howard’s team with his scoring, defense, and passing.
The Finland native has been testing the NBA Draft waters and weighing his professional options over the last few weeks. He received an invite to the G-League Elite Camp and performed well, but didn’t receive a call up to the NBA Draft Combine. He’s also set to visit West Virginia for an official visit on May 27th.
It is currently a recruiting dead period on the NCAA calendar which means no in-person recruiting, on or off campus, is allowed until after May 26th.
The deadline to withdraw from the NBA Draft is May 31st. Nkamhoua is not projected as a draft pick, but could have an opportunity to fight for a two-way contract or pursue professional opportunities overseas given that he was born in Finland.
Michigan has transfer commitments from Nimari Burnett and Tray Jackson this offseason, but still has three scholarships open on the 2023-24 roster after losing Hunter Dickinson, Kobe Bufkin, Jett Howard, Isaiah Barnes, Gregg Glenn and Joey Baker.

I bet he commits to WVU on his May 27 visit there and cancels the M visit
It would track with the last few weeks, TBH…
Even worse, he commits and doesn’t cancel the UM visit
