LOS ANGELES, CA - MARCH 22: Moritz Wagner #13 of the Michigan Wolverines celebrates after Wagner makes a three-pointer in the first half against the Texas A&M Aggies in the 2018 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament West Regional at Staples Center on March 22, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

Moritz Wagner, Michigan's German forward, has become one of the biggest stars in college basketball.

The 6-foot-11 forward from Germany has helped lead the Wolverines to a Final Four appearance. He's done just about everything for John Beilein's squad this year.

The Germany native is averaging 14.3 points, 6.9 rebounds and nearly 1 steal a game for the national semifinal-bound Wolverines.

His on-court persona is just as exciting as his actual game, too. He likes to spice it up a little bit.

Wagner seems to be a truly good guy, too, though, despite all of the vitriol he'll get from opposing fan bases.

He had this moment that went viral after Michigan's win over Houston:

Wagner apparently had a Sports Illustrated for Kids reporter following him around a bunch in Los Angeles. He was asked about his "girlfriend" back in Germany. Michigan's star has Instagrammed a couple of pictures of a mystery girl...

Good for Moe.

Michigan is set to play Loyola in the Final Four on Saturday night. The game will tip off at 6:09 p.m. E.T.
