Michigan’s quick pace on the basketball recruiting front isn’t slowing down. The Wolverines grabbed another highly rated player on Wednesday, picking up a commitment from Dayton Beech (Fla.) Father Lopez Catholic forward Colin Castleton.

“This has been the hardest decision of my life, and I want to thank each and every school that recruited me, gotten to know me personally, and given me an opportunity to play at their university,” Castleton said in a video released by the Daytona Beach News-Journal. “I’m so happy to end this chapter and start a new one. With that being said, I’ll be attending the University of Michigan.”

Regarded as a four-star prospect by Rivals, Scout and 247 Sports, the 6-foot-10, 215 pound Castleton selected Michigan over scholarship offers from Florida, Georgia, Clemson, Purdue, Illinois and others.

Castleton is the third prospect to commit to Michigan in the last two weeks, giving the Wolverines five commitments for the 2018 recruiting class. He joins shooting guard Adrien Nunez, point guard David DeJulius, and forwards Ignas Brazdeikis and Brandon Johns.
