Sources confirmed to Maize and Blue Review on Tuesday afternoon that Michigan has contacted Wofford transfer forward BJ Mack. The 6-foot-8, 245-pound forward recently announced his intention to enter the transfer portal after Wofford missed the NCAA Tournament.
A former three-star Oak Hill Academy recruit, Mack spent three seasons with Wofford following a quiet first season in South Florida in 2019-20.
The future fifth-year senior was the definition of consistency during his junior and senior seasons at Wofford. He played in 64 of the team’s 65 games over the two-year span and averaged 16.5 points as a junior, as well as 16.6 points as a senior.
Mack has never shot less than 80 percent from the free throw line in his four-year career, and he’s a career 35.9 percent 3-point shooter.
It doesn’t take a basketball genius to figure out that there will undoubtedly be some attrition from Juwan Howard’s club after the season ends, and Mack is likely the first of many players that Michigan will contact during the offseason.
Michigan could be in danger of losing up to a third of its roster, and it’s only appealing to a two-man recruiting class. Howard has shown no hesitation in taking to the player transfer portal, and he will no doubt have to scour this year’s transfer field for quality replacements.
