Michigan Basketball Commit Taylor Currie Reclassifying To 2018

Taylor Currie committed to Michigan basketball back on June 15. Now, he's set to arrive in Ann Arbor a year early.

Currie, a three-star recruit, is ranked No. 174 in the class of 2019.

247Sports has him at No. 38 among power forwards and No. 3 in Ohio for his current class, but that status is about to change.

Currie will reclassify to Michigan's 2018 recruiting class instead.

He told MLive.com about his decision:

Taylor Currie, the Clarkston High School forward who committed to Michigan's 2019 class on June 15, told MLive on Friday that he is reclassifying to 2018 and coming to U-M one year early.

"I just looked at everything and we considered all options," Currie said. "I believe it's the best fit for me. I'm obviously excited that I have the chance to go to Michgian. ... Looking at the class (Beilein) has coming in, it's a great opportunity to come in and play with those guys a year ahead of time."

Currie joins four-star Brandon Johns, who committed to the Wolverines earlier in the week, as well as three-star point guard David DeJulius.

Before the reclassification, Michigan's class ranked No. 11 in the country and No. 4 in the Big Ten.
