Michigan Basketball landed a big commitment on Tuesday night when 4-star forward Kameron Chatman (Portland, Oregon) pledged to join the Wolverines 2014 recruiting class. The 6-foot-7, 200 pound Chatman chose Michigan over his other final choices; Arizona, Oregon and USC. He is ranked the #29 overall player in the 2014 class by rivals.com and #49 by ESPN.
Chatman joins Ricky Doyle and Austin Hatch in the Wolverines 2014 recruiting class.
Here’s an excerpt of his scouting report on ESPN
Chatman has a terrific frame with very long arms and overall great length. The left-hander has a soft shooting touch that should get better with added strength…Chatman is a confident offensive player that looks to score and can in a variety of ways. Threes, mid range, to the rim and finish with length and post smaller defenders and simply elevate over them…He’s a scoring wing with great length. He can get buckets in a variety of ways and will be a major college wing that will be a factor and contributor on the offensive end of the floor.
Prying Chatman away from the west coast is a real coup for John Beilein and his staff. Michigan was in home with him on Tuesday night. When I say they were in, I mean they were in. Reportedly, all 4 of the coaches were at the visit and they were able to seal the deal with the explosive forward. Chatman played the last two seasons for Long Beach Poly (California). He will play his senior season for Columbia Christian in his hometown of Portland, Oregon.
The Wolverines are also a finalist for Top 100 forward Donte Grantham, who will decide this week. Michigan is hosting 5-star guard Devin Booker and 4-star forward DJ Wilson this weekend.
