Four-star Denton Guyer small forward Jalen Wilson stuck with Big Ten power Michigan for almost a year, but following a shocking departure to the NBA by head coach John Beilein, Wilson announced on Thursday via Twitter that he’s re-opened his recruiting.
“Due to the sudden head coaching change, I have requested my release from The University of Michigan, and will re-open my recruitment,” Wilson said in a tweet.
According to Brady Keane of the Denton Record Chronicle, Kansas, Marquette, Baylor, Oklahoma State and UCLA were the teams in Wilson’s top-6 before he committed to Michigan in late May of 2018.
Arizona State, Florida State, LSU, Oklahoma, Purdue, Saint Louis, SMU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Virginia Tech and VCU were his other offers, per 247Sports, which has Wilson ranked as the No. 13 SF in the nation and No. 8 overall player in the state.
Wilson is also ranked No. 50 overall in the country.
The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 18.1 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and shot 54 percent from the floor last season as Guyer went 32-5 and reached the 6A Region I final.
Wilson averaged 16.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists as a junior.
