Michigan Wing Kameron Chatman Will Transfer

A fourth player may be transferring out of the Michigan basketball program. Kameron Chatman, a 6-foot-8 reserve who averaged 7.2 minutes per game for the Wolverines this season, plans to transfer. Jeff Goodman had the news first, which was then confirmed by John Beilein..

Beilein and Chatman shared their thoughts on the move in a press release by the school.

"Kam is a wonderful young man with the potential to mature into a fine college player," said Beilein. "We have enjoyed coaching him over the past two years and wish him nothing but the best."

"I honestly don't think I could have had a more quality life experience than I did in Ann Arbor," said Chatman. "I am incredibly grateful for my two years at Michigan. I would like to thank Coach Beilein and his entire staff for taking a chance on a small town kid out of Portland. I know my experience has inspired others as I will take all of my lessons learned to continue my pursuit of becoming the best man and player I can. Go Blue!"

Chatman joins Spike Albrecht, who committed to Purdue today, Aubrey Dawkins, and Ricky Doyle as departures from the program. Chatman averaged 2.8 points per game in 2015-16, down from 3.6 in 15.2 minutes per game as a freshman. His biggest moment as a Wolverine was the three pointer that sent Michigan past Indiana in the Big Ten Tournament, which likely locked up an NCAA Tournament berth for the team.
