The Michigan basketball program has some wiggle room with scholarship numbers this offseason as it has one open scholarship spot heading into next season. It appears, at least for now, that the Wolverines are in the beginning stages of utilizing that open scholarship spot to add an experienced graduate transfer.
According to the Wright State basketball program, guard Mark Alstork would be released from his scholarship to allow him to pursue other opportunities next season. According to MADEHoops.com's Pat Lawless, it appears U-M is one of a handful of schools that have reached out to Alstork to gauge his interest in transferring to Ann Arbor.
Alstork, who averaged 19 points a game with Wright State a season ago, is keeping his NBA Draft options open as he has also declared for the NBA Draft. He has the option of putting his NBA dreams on hold, however, to play one more season of basketball at the collegiate level.
A potential feather in the Wolverines' cap is Alstork played two seasons under current assistant coach Billy Donlon.
