The Michigan Wolverines added the fourth member of their 2018 recruiting class Friday when small forward Ignas Brazdeikis decided to don maize and blue.

Brazdeikis, a four-star recruit, joined Brandon Johns, David DeJulius and Taylor Currie as a part of Michigan’s upcoming class. Despite his size (6-8, 220 pounds), Brazdeikis will spend most of his time on the wing with the Wolverines.
“It’s just a perfect fit for me,” Brazdeikis said, via Scout.com. “Even when I was just getting into basketball, Michigan was like a dream school for me. It was the first school I knew about. I used to watch them play on TV and look at them and I could always see myself playing for them. Now that the opportunity is here, it’s super nice.”
Brazdeikis plays his high school ball at Orangeville Prep in Ontario, Canada. His ability to space the floor should make him a valued commodity in John Beilein’s offense.
