Michigan basketball is in on an Arizona State transfer

Michigan basketball has a couple of scholarships open for next season, and the Wolverines have a few holes in their roster.

One of the major holes is at the center position. Michigan has one center on the roster, sophomore Tarris Reed Jr. The maize and blue were hoping to get Hunter Dickinson back, but the big man decided to transfer to Kansas and leave Michigan after three years.

Michigan has three transfers coming. One is Tray Jackson from Seton Hall who can play center, but is primarily a 4.

Since the 5 is a position of need for Michigan, the Wolverines have reached out to former Arizona State big man Warren Washington, according to Jon Rothstein. Washington is considering Michigan along with Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Memphis, TCU and Texas Tech.

The 7-foot, 225-pound center would be a bridge player for Michigan since he is a graduate transfer with one year of eligibilty remaining. Washington originally committed in 2018 to Oregon State where he played one season. He transferred to Nevada for two seasons and played last year with ASU.

Last season, Washington averaged 9.2 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 26.9 minutes per game. When he played with Nevada for two seasons, he averaged over 10 points per game.
