It was reported Michigan basketball had contacted former Wofford forward, B.J. Mack who entered the transfer portal last week.
Well, the Wolverines are still looking around the portal to see who they may be able to snag this year. On Thursday, Joe Tipton of On3 reported Michigan was one of many teams to contact Pittsburgh Panther John Hugley.
Hugley only played in eight games this season before announcing he would sit out the remainder of the year to focus on his mental health.
The 6-foot-9, 265-pound forward from Clevland, Ohio was just a junior this season and averaged eight points and 3.6 rebounds in the eight games he played.
But last season, Hugley led the Panthers scoring 14.8 points per game and 7.9 rebounds per game.
Pitt transfer John Hugley has heard from the following schools, per source:

With this report, this is now the second forward we know Michigan has contacted. Mack, the former Wofford player, is more of a stretch four whereas Hugley is more of a bruiser down low.
The Wolverines struggled to find consistent production from the power forward spot this season and that may be where Michigan looks in the transfer portal for next season.
