Michigan released an updated roster for the 2017-18 season featuring new heights, weights and numbers.

The roster update includes numbers for Michigan’s four newcomers: Jordan Poole (#2), Isaiah Livers (#4), Jaaron Simmons (#5) and Eli Brooks (#55).

The weight numbers are most intriguing at the four position where Michigan is searching for replacement options for DJ Wilson. Freshman forward Isaiah Livers is listed at 6-foot-7 and an impressive 230 pounds. Duncan Robinson is listed at 6-foot-8, 215 pounds — the same as he was on last year’s roster.

Jaaron Simmons was listed at 6-foot-1, 184 pounds last year at Ohio and checks in at the same weight while sophomore point guard Xavier Simpson added 5 pounds.

Freshman guard Eli Brooks is the smallest player on Michigan’s roster at a listed 6-foot and just 170 pounds. ┬áHe’s also the only newcomer to buck the trend of single digit numbers, opting to go with 55.

Sophomore big man Jon Teske is the largest player on the Michigan roster. He’s up to 7-foot-1, 255 pounds, an inch taller and 10 pounds heavier than his listed weight last year.

Here’s a full listing of Michigan’s roster including heights, weights, numbers and any differences from last year’s roster.

    If Livers has the strength to match his weight he will be a big addition to maul under the basket during the conference schedule.

    Is Hibbitts really the only walk-on?

    • Forgot Fred Wright-Jones when I wrote it up.

        Thanks! Me too!

    Any clue as to whether some of these weight changes (and redistributions of the same weight) involved changes in body fat and strength? Many of these could be significant physical changes if they did: Charles Matthews; Xavier Simpson; Watson, Teske to name but a few. And physical changes from Freshmen season to sophomore seasons often translated into important improvements in play. Belien and many others have shown this to be true time and again. I had forgotten who Brent Hibbitts was, and I’m wondering if there’s time and information for UM Hoops to give an update on his status? Preferred walk-on with a 1 (!) year scholarship or a 4 year scholarship player now? A player who might have a future or someone relegated to the scout team for the rest of his career at UM, however long or short that might be.
