The Michigan Wolverines women's basketball program got a boost of good news in the early stages of the offseason.
On Sunday, the program received a commitment from guard Greta Kampschroeder, a former McDonald's All-American who played at Oregon State this past season. Kampschroeder, a native of Naperville, Illinois, is the first McDonald's All-American to make the Michigan women's basketball roster.

In a tweet, Kampschroeder announced her arrival to Ann Arbor.
"We are so excited that Greta chose to commit to Michigan," Michigan head coach Kim Barnes Arico said in a statement. "I have known Greta for a long time and she is a perfect fit for our program, especially for the culture we have created here. She is incredibly hardworking and disciplined, both as a basketball player and as a student. Greta's versatility and ability to do so many different things on the basketball court will immediately make an impact for us. She is the total package — an ability to score, a knack for making people around her better, defensive prowess, rebounding and leadership. Greta is a playmaker and a winner who has experience playing against the very best."
During her freshman season at Oregon State, Kampschroeder saw plenty of action over her 31 games played averaging just over 21 minutes of time on the floor per contest. Despite just averaging five points and two rebounds a game, Kampschroeder had some bright moments, including a career-high 16 points against Idaho in the Maui Jim classic. In conference play, she put up 12 points against the Stanford Cardinal.
"I chose Michigan to help build on the winning tradition that has grown under Coach Arico," Kampschroeder said in a statement. "I've always admired the way her team competes while having fun. I also look forward to developing my own game with such a great coaching staff. I feel fortunate to have the chance to pursue my education at a world-class institution."
