Michigan forward Kameron Chatman set to transfer from Michigan

Michigan suffers another hit to depth as the basket program announced on Tuesday that forward Kameron Chatman will transfer.

The Michigan basketball program has suffered its third transfer this offseason.

Following in the footsteps of Ricky Doyle and Aubrey Dawkins, U-M forward Kameron Chatman will transfer from the program according to a program statement on Tuesday afternoon.

"Kam is a wonderful young man with the potential to mature into a fine college player," U-M head coach John Beilein said in a statement. "We have enjoyed coaching him over the past two years and wish him nothing but the best."

Chatman, will undoubtedly be known for his three-point shot to defeat Indiana in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament which likely sealed the Wolverines' entry in the NCAA Tournament this season, has two years of eligibility remaining.

"I honestly don't think I could have had a more quality life experience than I did in Ann Arbor," said Chatman in a statement. "I am incredibly grateful for my two years at Michigan. I would like to thank Coach Beilein and his entire staff for taking a chance on a small town kid out of Portland. I know my experience has inspired others as I will take all of my lessons learned to continue my pursuit of becoming the best man and player I can. Go Blue!"

Due to NCAA rules, Chatman will have to sit out the 2016-17 season.
