Evan Smotrycz, Colton Christian and Carlton Brundidge are leaving the Michigan basketball program according to the following official athletic department release.

“We never like to see players leave the program, however, Evan, Colton and Carlton have made the decision to transfer and continue their careers elsewhere,” said Beilein. “All three are fine young men with bright futures. We wish them and their families nothing but success going forward.”

Wolverine Nation caught up with Evan Smotrycz and got this quote:

“It’s just a matter of what I thought was the right fit, something my family agreed on,” Smotrycz said. “I don’t want to say too much right now in being sensitive to the coaching staff. But it was a decision I had to make to be somewhere I was happy.”

Our scholarship page has been updated to reflect the impact of the departures on future recruiting classes. We’ll have more thoughts and reactions in the coming hours.
