Michigan extended a scholarship offer to class of 2016 point guard Derryck Thornton Jr. today on the first day that John Beilein and his staff offer rising junior prospects.
Thornton, a top-20 prospect nationally, wrapped up a multi-day visit in Ann Arbor last week. The 6-foot-2 point guard “loved” the trip and is considering an early decision.
“It was great, I loved everything,” Thornton told UM Hoops after the visit last week. “The coaching staff was great and they took me around the campus which was very nice. They took me everywhere, I got to see everything and meet some really cool people there. I talked to the players and I played some pick up with the players and I loved it. It was great.”
Thornton also holds offers from Arizona, USC, UNLV, Cal, UConn and Miami (FL) along with interest from Kentucky and Florida.
