Caris LeVert, a two-guard out of Pickerington, Ohio is back on the market and is looking strongly at a few schools. One such school is The University of Michigan.
When GoBlueWolverine made it down to Pickerington to see Central prospects Taco Charlton and Je'Sean Tate in hoops action, it was Levert who stole the show. In that game he had 33 points and was certainly the star of the night.
At the time the young man was committed to Ohio University, a development that registered in the minds of many pundits as one of the biggest mid-major steals in the country. However, when head coach John Groce left the Bobcats to accept the Illinois coaching position, LeVert decided to rethink his future. And last week he was officially granted a release from his LOI.
Now he is looking at going through the recruiting process again. And there is a school Up North that he is interested in.
"I am interested in Michigan," LeVert told GoBlueWolverine. "I'm looking at them, and the program there (offers) an opportunity to get better as a player. There are other schools showing interest as well."
Those programs also looking at the kid with a self-described "all-around game" are Purdue, Iowa, Xavier, and Dayton.
GoBlueWolverine will have more on this story in the hours and days to come.
