(ANN ARBOR) – The Michigan men's basketball team just added another recruit to the 2021 class. Grand Rapids Christian guard Kobe Bufkin, a four-star prospect, announced his commitment to the Wolverines on Friday, becoming the second prospect to pick U-M this week after three-star forward Will Tschetter publicly committed on Monday. Listed at 6 foot 4, 175 pounds, Bufkin is ranked as the No. 78 overall prospect, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. His final five schools also included DePaul, LSU, Michigan State and Ohio State. Bufkin also held offers from Missouri, Northwestern and TCU. As a junior, he helped lead Grand Rapids Christian to a 20-2 record before the state playoffs ended prematurely because of the coronavirus pandemic. Bufkin averaged 22 points, five rebounds and four assists. Bufkin is the third prospect to join Michigan's 2021 class, along with Tschetter and four-star wing Isaiah Barnes, who committed June 24. He is the first in-state recruit Juwan Howard has landed since he took over as coach in May 2019.
