Michigan basketball reaches out to top-five ranked transfer
The Wolverines basketball squad is expected to be active in the transfer portal this offseason. Michigan already made the top 10 for one of its top transfer targets, and the Wolverines have reached out to a huge transfer target.
Forward Chris Leldum out of Harvard announced he was going to enter the transfer portal in early March. The 6-foot-6 forward averaged 18.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game last year playing in the Ivy League. Ledlum was an All-Ivy League selection after his phenomenal play.
According to Adam Zagoria, Michigan basketball — among many others — has already reached out to the former Harvard forward.
According to On3, Ledlum is ranked No. 5 in the transfer portal player rankings.

The Wolverines need forward help for next season. Ledlum has the ability to play the 2, 3 or 4 position. He’s not a great 3-point shooter, shooting only 29% from deep last year. But he is a ferocious rebounder who averaged nine boards a game two years ago and over eight this past season.
Ledlum played three seasons at Harvard and would have two seasons of eligibility left if he chooses.
