Sources confirmed to Maize and Blue Review Tuesday afternoon that Michigan has reached out to 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 recruit out of Oak Hill Academy, Mack spent three seasons with Wofford in 2019-20 after a quiet freshman season at South Florida.
An early fifth-year senior, Wofford was the definition of consistency in his junior and senior seasons. He played in 64 of the team’s 65 games over a two-year stretch, and he averaged 16.5 points as a junior as well as 16.6 points as a senior.
Mack has never shot less than 80% from the free throw line during his four-year career, and is a career 35.9% 3-point shooter.
It doesn’t take a basketball roster genius to figure out that there will undoubtedly be an attrition from the club of Juwan Howard after the season is over, and Mack will likely be the first of many players arriving to Michigan during the off-season.
Michigan could be at risk of losing up to a third of its roster, and that only brings in a two-man recruiting class. Howard has shown no hesitation to visit the transfer portal for players, and he will undoubtedly have to search this year’s transfer field to find some quality replacements.
