Michigan basketball has big recruiting weekends on tap, with several recruits heading to Ann Arbor for official visits.

But before that happens, the Wolverines received some more positive news: They made the cut for another top-50 prospect in the 2020 class.

Moses Moody, a four-star guard from Little Rock, Arkansas, listed Michigan among his top seven schools on Wednesday. His other finalists were Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Ohio State, Oregon and USC.

Moody (6-foot-5, 180 pounds) is rated the No. 7 shooting guard and No. 43 overall recruit in the nation for 2020, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Moody averaged 17.7 points and 3.9 rebounds during Nike EYBL play this summer. He also plays at Montverde Academy in Florida, the same prep powerhouse Michigan commit Zeb Jackson has transferred to for his senior season.

Moody has an official visit to Ohio State this weekend, while Michigan will be hosting five-star center Walker Kessler and five-star guard Jaden Springer. Next weekend, the Wolverines are set to host five-star guard Nimari Burnett and four-star forward Lance Ware.

Moody is the 10th top-50 recruit to name Michigan as a finalist, along with guards Joshua Christopher (No. 9 overall), Springer (No. 13) and Burnett (No. 22); forwards Isaiah Todd (No. 10), Ware (No. 35) and Henry Coleman (No. 40); and big men Kessler (No. 15), Hunter Dickinson (No. 29) and Mark Williams (No. 34).

Jackson, a four-star guard, is the lone verbal commit for Michigan’s 2020 recruiting class. The Wolverines also have three open scholarships for the 2020-21 season.
