According to Jerry Meyer of 247 Sports, Michigan is in the mix to receive an official visit from Canadian superstar RJ Barrett.
Meyer reports that no official decision has been made as to whether to join the 2018 class or remain in 2019, but Michigan is one of four schools expected to host Barrett for an official visit.
There has been no official announcement from the Barrett camp as to whether he will remain 2019 or reclassify up to the 2018 class, but 247Sports strongly expects the 6-6 small forward who attends Monteverde (Fla.) Academy to move into the 2018 class.
Duke, Kentucky, Michigan and Oregon are considered the frontrunners to land Barrett and are expected to host him on an official visit.
Lurking right behind these four schools in his recruitment are Arizona, Kansas, Texas and UCLA.
Barrett is ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the class of 2019 and would likely be ranked No. 1 in the 2018 class as well. He had a dominant summer with Team Canada, helping the national team win the U19 World Cup including 38 points in an upset win over Team USA.
