Howard graduate transfer James Daniel considering Michigan

Dylan Burkhardt

Michigan is in the mix for Howard graduate transfer James Daniel.

According to Jon Rothstein, Daniel is considering Michigan, Ohio State, Tennessee and DePaul.

Daniel led the nation in scoring in 2015-16 before taking a redshirt year due to injury in 2016-17. Now the explosive scorer is looking to transfer up a level for his final year of college.

Here’s a brief video clip of Daniel in action that we compiled for Michigan’s game against Howard to open the season.

Michigan has also been linked with Pitt graduate transfer Cameron Johnson, Wright State graduate transfer Mark Alstork and 2017 guard Shakwon Barrett.

    These grad transfer/late offer possibilities are all over the map. You have two combo scoring guards that are 6’4-6’5, a wing that is 6’8 and a guard that is 5’11. You add that to trying to close out the class with Bamba, a center, and I’m confused as to what exactly Beilein thinks we are missing on next years roster. Thoughts?

    • Daniel and Alstork would provide something similar: pick and roll creator. I guess Barrett would probably be in that similar mold.

      They might play different positions technically, but fill similar roles.

      Johnson… a 6-8 guy who can shoot threes is going to have Beilein’s attention all the time.

        Do you think these interests speak to attrition possibilities or they are just covering bases in case Bamba doesn’t come? I’d assume most of these kids could wait until his decision is made

        • You are always preparing for some sort of attrition, but Michigan also has a scholarship available and a huge void to fill in terms of pick and roll production.

    By the looks of things he looks like a scoring guard. Dylan – do you have any assist statistics on him? Is he more like a Walton who can score and dish out assists or like MAAR who can just score?
