2022 four-star Jett Howard commits to Michigan

Maize n Brew 13 October, 2021 - 02:13pm

Juwan’s son is officially a Wolverine.

Howard plays his high school ball down in Florida at IMG Academy. Despite being the son of Michigan’s head coach, this recruitment was never a lock from the start. He wanted to be like a normal recruit and have a recruiting process. Tennessee pushed hard for him, but the Wolverines won the longer-than-anticipated recruiting battle.

Brandon Jenkins at 247Sports evaluated Howard back in the spring, and had this to say about his game:

Michigan’s 2022 class could be set in stone with the addition of Howard. The class has four commits now with Howard, four-star point guard Dug McDaniel, four-star big man Tarris Reed and four-star forward Gregg Glenn. The Wolverines will likely continue to recruit five-star big man Yohan Traore, who officially visited Ann Arbor a few weeks back. If Traore decides to go elsewhere, this four-man group will likely do it for them in this class.

The Wolverines now own the No. 3 class in 2022, per 247Sports’ composite, just barely jumping Arkansas and just trailing Ohio State.

Howard is the No. 11 small forward, No. 12 player in the state of Florida and No. 37 overall player in the 2022 class on 247Sports’ composite.

Check out some of Howard’s highlights in the video below.

Another Howard is joining the Michigan basketball program.

Jett Howard, the youngest son of Wolverines head coach and alumnus Juwan Howard, committed to play for Michigan on Wednesday. Jett Howard, who currently attends IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., is a four-star recruit and the No. 37 player (No. 11 small forward) in the 2022 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Jett Howard joins his father as well as his brother, Jace Howard, a sophomore who appeared in 11 games this past season.

Juwan Howard is entering his third season as head coach. Michigan went 23-5 last season, advancing to the Elite Eight before losing to UCLA.

Michigan had the nation’s No. 2 recruiting class in 2021, highlighted by five-star forward Caleb Houstan and Moussa Diabate. Jett Howard is already the fourth commitment to the Wolverines’ 2022 class and the second top-50 recruit, joining center Tarris Reed (No. 39).

The 6-10 big man fills a need up front for the Wolverines in 2022-23.

The fifth annual preseason poll also tabs Illinois center Kofi Cockburn as player of the year and Michigan's Caleb Houstan as top freshman.

Howard laid out his vision for the program, including a potential staff and a breakdown of the Wolverines roster.

Four-star wing Jett Howard made the inevitable official today and announced his commitment to play for Juwan Howard and Michigan. Howard had been intent on going through the recruiting process and took official visits to several schools along with his trip to Ann Arbor, but in the end, he’ll be a member of Michigan’s 2022 class as has been widely expected since his father was hired as Michigan’s head coach.

Howard is the fourth pledge in Michigan’s ’22 class, joining Dug McDaniel, Tarris Reed and Gregg Glenn. All four U-M commits are four-star prospects and Howard’s pledge pushes the class to No. 3 nationally according to composite class rankings.

Here’s everything you need to know about Howard including scouting notes, exclusive video highlights, roster fit, class outlook, and other insights.
