Michigan basketball eyeing a Pittsburgh Panther transfer

It was reported Michigan basketball had contacted former Wofford forward B.J. Mack, who entered the transfer portal last week.

Well, the Wolverines are still looking around the portal to see who they may be able to snag this year. On Thursday, Joe Tipton of On3 reported Michigan was one of many teams to contact Pittsburgh Panther John Hugley.

Hugley played in only eight games this season before announcing he would sit the remainder of the year to focus on his mental health.

The 6-foot-9, 265-pound forward from Cleveland, Ohio, was a junior this season and averaged eight points and 3.6 rebounds in the eight games he played.

Last season, Hugley led the Panthers in scoring, 14.8 points per game, and rebounding, 7.9 rebounds per game.

He is the second forward we know Michigan has contacted. Mack, the former Wofford player, is more of a stretch four whereas Hugley is more of a bruiser down low.

The Wolverines struggled to find consistent production from the power forward spot this season and that may be where Michigan looks in the transfer portal for next season.
