Currie is Michigan’s first commitment in the 2019 class.
Currie plays for Clarkston High School, where he started at center on last year’s state championship squad. He scored 16 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the state final in front of Michigan head coach John Beilein.
Currie transferred to Clarkston last year as he made the move from Ohio to Michigan. He still plays for All-Ohio Red on the summer grassroots circuit. He’s averaging 11.7 points and 8 rebounds per game on the Nike EYBL 16U circuit.
The four-star big man listed Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin as the three programs pursuing him most diligently when we spoke to him last month, with additional interest from Purdue and Iowa.
Scout: 4-star, 91st
247 Composite: 3-star, #149
Currie is known as a skilled big man who has shown the ability to comfortably finish and early potential stretch the floor with his jump shot. He finishes well around the basket and has had a handful of big performances this summer on the grassroots circuit including a game at Spiece where he knocked down five triples. He shows good rebounding numbers (8 per game in EYBL play) and appears to have a good motor. Here’s a rundown of various scouting reports over the last two years.
I’d expect the Wolverines to be judicious in how they extend additional 2019 offers other than some top targets, such as New Haven’s Romeo Weems, and use much of the July evaluation period and both the June and August elite camps, to help focus their approach in the class.
