Redshirt junior wing Charles Matthews returned to Michigan after nearly entering the NBA Draft.

Charles Matthews almost didn't return to Michigan, but now he's perhaps the most integral piece of the team.

Freshman forward Brandon Johns came to Michigan as a four-star recruit.

At the Michigan men’s basketball team’s first media availability of the season, John Beilein told reporters that his team needed “two or three” freshmen to work their way into a rotation depleted by graduation and NBA departures. Forwards Ignas Brazdeikis and Brandon Johns came in as highly-touted four-star recruits, widely expected to contribute immediately, but Beilein would only commit to Brazdeikis.

Freshman Ignas Brazdeikis was a top-40 prospect before committing to Michigan and is now learning how to play multiple positions for the Wolverines this season.

Ignas Brazdeikis is officially listed as a forward. Don’t let that fool you.
