Four-star wing Kameron Chatman signs NLI

Dylan Burkhardt

13769587-mmmain[1]Kameron Chatman became the third Wolverine to officially sign for the maize and blue on Wednesday night after he signed his letter of intent at Self Enhancement, Inc.

Chatman is the highest rated recruit in Michigan’s ‘14 class. The 6-foot-7 wing is the No. 36 player in the country and a consensus four-star prospect. Although he stat out his last high school season due to transfer issues, he averaged 15.8 points and 9.8 rebounds per game on the Nike EYBL travel circuit over the summer.

Chatman, often described as a point-forward, was the third Wolverine to make things official after Ricky Doyle and DJ Wilson signed earlier in the day on Wednesday.

Here’s video of Chatman at the signing ceremony from Oregon Live:

Austin Hatch is the final member of the 2014 class and his signing plans are currently unknown. Hatch committed in 2011 but hasn’t played organized basketball since a tragic plane crash in June, 2011.

    Even if Robinson leaves after this season, UM will still have one the best, if not the best, collection of wings in the Big Ten next year. LeVert, Stauskas, Irvin, and Chatman are all next level talents.

      Agreed, very strong wings. No way JB could gaurentee minutes to Booker or Blackmon with this core group of gaurds…not saying they asked but minutes certainly are limited with this core group.

      Hoping for Zimmerman to round out the next three years.

      Go Blue.

    Don’t they have room for two more people in this class?

    I’m hoping Hatch sticks with Michigan and actually plays. His recovery from not only one but two terrible tragedies is an inspiration. It would be nice to have a detailed update on his progress.

    • Hatch’s family has asked for media to give the family privacy since the accident happened.

        So I guess we’ll have to wait until he gets to AA. I can’t even imagine the psychological and physical challenges he has dealt with and continues to deal with. But he’s already beaten the odds. And, of course, it’s not really about basketball at this point.

    Congratulations to Kam! This class has great potential, with the skill set of Chatman very exciting. If Bolden somehow drops for us, I would be extremely happy with our efforts!

      I agree. It would be nice if they could land a dominant 4/5 guy to go with the talented backcourt and wings. I think Doyle and Wilson will be good players, but could take a year or two to really develop and I think we already know what Horford brings to the table. Hopefully he gets better, but I would like him to not be the “main” option in the post next year (assuming McGary is gone).
