Report: Michigan reaches out to Wright State transfer Mark Alstork

Dylan Burkhardt

According to a report by Pat Lawless, Michigan is among the schools that ha s reached out to Wright State graduate transfer Mark Alstork.

The other schools reportedly involved, per Lawless, are Baylor, Oklahoma State, Iowa State, UNLV, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, South Florida, Tennessee, Nevada, Pittsburgh, Texas Tech, Southern Utah and Iona.

Alstork told the Detroit Free Press that he was interested in Michigan, but he’s looking at his potential professional options first.

“Oh definitely, I’d look at Michigan,” Alstork told the Free Press “I know they’re a high major, I know they made it to the (Sweet 16). As soon as we were out, I told everybody, I’m (rooting) for Coach D, I’m going for Michigan and I know Derrick Walton and Zak Irvin.”

Alstork is one of the best pick-and-roll guards available on the graduate transfer market and he has a connection to Michigan as assistant coach Billy Donlon recruited him to Wright State as a transfer and coached him in 2015-16.

    This guy is who I want if we don’t get Bamba. If everyone is back, I might even want him over Bamba. He just makes too much sense and would really fit on this squad. Seems like a guy that would really solidify us nearly at every position and make us a dangerous 3 point shooting team again.

      Can we get both? Maybe somebody will transfer out! If JB is somehow able to land both Mo Bamba and this kid from Wright State, Look Out!

        Totally agree with that.

    Wow Alstork is quite a player. Love to see him in a Michigan uniform, but I think he will be in the NBA next year.

  • Barth Applefeld

    He’s an interesting possibility with a good 3P percentage, smart (graduated), ambitious (declared for the NBA draft) , but he’s a high usage player because of TOs, has an effective FG% of .400, and, while 6-5, is as thin as a rail. What all this means, I don’t know, but I’m not as excited after reviewing this info. as when I first saw the video.

  • Reached out to an ESPN analyst who has called several Wright State games over the years and he had this to say about Mark Alstork:

    “Really good player and kid. SCORER! Physically strong, good shooter. Mostly an off guard but played some point out of necessity. Needs to make better decisions as he can force it at times. Willing rebounder. He’s a legit Big Ten guy.”

    Hope we get him! Imagine our p[possible starting 5

    PG Simpson/Poole
    SG Alstork/MAAR
    SF Matthews/ Robinson
    PF Wilson
    C Wagner

    He would be a good fit for us!
