Michigan commits nine players to the 2018 class of 2017, including three who are expected to enter the 2018 NBA Draft.
The Wolverines also announced the hiring of former Duke coach Billy Donovan as its head coach, the Wolverines first of its kind since it hired Donovan in 2003.
The 2017 class has already received a total of six commitments.
The 2019 class has also received six commitments, including one committed by freshman center Nick Bosa, who signed with the Michigan Wolverines on Friday.
The 2018 class has received 11 commitments and has been expected to land a commitment from a prospect in the 2019 NBA Draft, but Michigan said on Friday that it has made no official announcements about any player.
Michigan’s 2018 class had five commitments, three of which were from three-star prospects.
Michigan also confirmed the hiring on Saturday of former Florida Gators coach Billy Kennedy, the highest-ranking college head coach in the nation.
Kennedy replaces Jim Boeheim as head coach at the Gators, and he took over for David Cutcliffe, who was fired in December.
Kennedy was a two-time national championship coach at Florida, where he led the Gators to two NCAA Tournament appearances in his first four seasons in Gainesville.
Florida was the top-ranked team in the country at the time Kennedy was hired.
In 2018, Florida lost its first four games of the season to fall to No. 11 seed Florida State in the ACC Tournament.
Kennedy, who has previously served as an assistant coach at Miami and Duke, will take over for Mark Gottfried.
The Gators also added three three-stars in the class.
