Adrien Nunez, a 6-foot-5 wing from Brooklyn, N.Y., on Monday night committed to Michigan’s 2018 recruiting class.
Nunez was offered by the Wolverines on Sunday and quickly settled on Michigan over Boston College and Penn State. He announced his commitment on Twitter.
Nunez is ranked a three-star prospect by the 247Sports composite. He is the No. 2 shooting guard in New York and the No. 62 shooting guard nationally, according to 247Sports.
A late bloomer with outside shooting touch, Nunez wasn't garnering much interest early in the summer until the offers started to trickle in over the past two months.
"They have been comparing me and my future progression a lot to Tim Hardaway," Nunez told ElevateHoops.com. "I think as I develop in this upcoming year, I will be a capable big guard who can shoot it, play hard, handle ball screens and be athletic in the lane.”
There are three other commitments in Michigan’s 2018 class: Forwards Brandon Johns of East Lansing and Ignas Brazdeikis of Mono, Ontario, and point guard David DeJulius of Detroit East English.
With Nunez's pledge, Michigan leapfrogged Michigan State and now has the No. 5 recruiting class in the nation, according to the 247Sports composite team rankings.
But the Wolverines may not be done. Four-star forward Colin Castleton was on Michigan's campus for an official visit this past weekend along with Nunez. Castleton is expected to announce his commitment this week and is reportedly down to Michigan and Illinois.
