ANN ARBOR, MI — After a disappointing end to the 2023 basketball season, Juwan Howard has been active in the recruiting process to right the ship for future years. Earlier today, Michigan basketball recruiting landed their second major commitment for the 2024 recruiting class.

Michigan basketball recruiting: Wolverines receive commitment from a big-time in-state recruit

Durral Brooks, a four-star point guard, announced his commitment to Michigan earlier today. Brooks’ only official visit was back in October when he visited Ann Arbor. However, Brooks took two unofficial visits to Michigan State, another school listed in his top five.

Despite being pursued by Michigan State, Dayton and Butler, Brooks ultimately decided to become a Wolverine and will join Juwann Howard’s 2024 recruitment class as the second commitment.

Brooks played basketball at Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In both his sophomore and junior seasons, Catholic Central High School won their conference and finished the season top 25 in the state of Michigan. Brooks currently stands at 6-foot-2 following his junior season.

Looking forward to the class of 2024

Brooks is ranked 13th among point guards in the nation and No. 1 in Michigan according to 247 sports composite rankings. Michigan landed another four-star guard back in 2021 when Christian Anderson announced his early commitment to the 2024 class. Brooks and Anderson now make up the 22nd-best recruiting class for 2024.

Michigan is also in a fantastic position to land five-star center John Bol from Wichita, Kansas. After the loss of Hunter Dickinson to the transfer portal, Michigan needs another center. Bol, who stands tall at 7-foot-1, would fit the bill perfectly and help round out a 2024 recruiting class that currently only consists of guards.

Michigan has also expressed interest in three other five-star recruits. Among them is Boogie Fland, a 6-foot-3 guard from White Plains, New York, who currently has Michigan atop his college list. Fland officially visited Ann Arbor on May 4th and is a big-time recruit to watch for the 2024 class.

Despite a disappointing previous season, the future of Michigan basketball is looking bright. The 2024 class now has two significant commitments, and the sky is the limit for Juwan Howard.
