Michigan basketball player to enter NCAA transfer portal

Michigan basketball ended its 2022-23 season on a whimper, losing to Vanderbilt in stunning fashion in the second round of the NIT. It appears the Wolverines are about to lose another battle in a way.

In his second year with the program, shooting guard Isaiah Barnes, a former four-star recruit, didn’t see much time on the court. This was supposed to be a season in which he could be in the rotation, but he didn’t participate outside of early in the season.

According to On3’s Joe Tipton, Barnes intends to enter the NCAA transfer portal.

Barnes was the No. 117 recruit in the 2021 class per the 247Sports composite. He appeared in 15 games in 2022-23 and just two in 2021-22. He averaged 1.1 points per game this past season. He will have three years of eligibility at his next school of choice.
