Michigan Basketball added some much needed height to their program Friday afternoon after six-foot-ten Moritz Wagner signed a letter of intent to play at U of M beginning in the 2015-16 season.

Wagner, the first German member in Michigan basketball history, played in 18 games with Alba Berlin and averaged 16.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists a game in leading his team to the NBBL playoffs.
Before signing with U-M, Wagner was considering Connecticut and California, among other programs.
NBA scouts describe him as a threat around the perimeter, especially in catch and shoot situations, which is something coach John Beilein and Michigan have lived and died on in the past few years.
Wagner will fill the scholarship vacancy left by graduating forward Max Bielfeldt, who has one year of basketball eligibility remaining but has opted to transfer.
Michigan now has one scholarship remaining for the 2015-16 season, after freshman guard Austin Hatch shifted to a medical scholarship in April.
