PF Taylor Currie Decommits From Michigan Basketball

Taylor Currie originally committed to Michigan as a class of 2019 recruit, was set to reclassify up to 2018, and now will not be a Wolverine at all.

The big man from Clarkston, Michigan is ranked No. 199 in the class of 2018 by 247Sports.

He is slotted in at No. 44 among power forwards and No. 8 in the state of Michigan.

Today he announced that he is rescinding his pledge to the Wolverines.

247Sports has more background on the decision, and reading between the lines, it sounds like it might've been somewhat mutual, as Michigan targets other recruits.

But in recent weeks, the Wolverines have reached out to more big men in the 2018 class. The most notable is four-star Florida forward Colin Castleton, who recently dropped two remaining official visits, named Michigan in his top two alongside Illinois and is currently in Ann Arbor on an official visit.

Currie is in an interesting spot, because he is able to qualify as a 2018 or a 2019 recruit, which could make him attractive to a wide swath of programs. In 2016, he took an unofficial visit to Michigan State, and has also drawn interest from schools like Wisconsin.
