Michigan ‘fully entrenched’ in landing Lebanese F Youssef Khayat

Juwan Howard and the Michigan Wolverines have one scholarship to give out for 2022-23 and they may have their man.

After losing both Moussa Diabate and Caleb Houstan to the 2022 NBA Draft, Michigan head coach Juwan Howard and his staff have been charged with the task of filling a couple of open roster spots for the upcoming 2022-23 season.

News broke on Friday that the Wolverines had landed a commitment from former Duke F Joey Baker, who is coming to Michigan as a grad transfer, but it does not appear as if they are done there.

According to multiple reports, Michigan currently has its sights set on Lebanese forward, Youssef Khayat.
