The Michigan Wolverines added some fire power to their future by getting a commitment out of Kameron Chatman on October 1st. It was announced through the young man’s twitter account that he would be going to Michigan. Other schools that were left hoping included Arizona, Oregon and USC.

A 6″7 forward, Chatman is a player who is very versatile and mold-able. He believes that he has some point guard skills and can easily switch over into a guard spot if need be. Chatman is an unselfish player that likes to get his teammates going early. He also has great touch around the basket and good athleticism.

In the 2014, he was ranked 29th according to Rivals. Chatman is Michigan’s first recruit from the 2014 class but they hope not to be done there. They are currently recruiting Devin Booker, James Blackmon Jr and Donte Grantham. Should they get all of those players, Michigan could find itself with the best class of 2014.

For Wolverines fans, it must be great to see that Beilein has not been sitting on his laurels. After taking his team to the NCAA finals and getting himself a well earned extension, Beilein has been heavily involved in recruiting for 2014 and it is starting to pay off. Chatman declared to the school the same night that Beilein had an in-house visit with the player. All signs point to Beilein bringing it home with a great visit, something that will be necessary again in the future to convince other highly ranked players to choose Michigan.
