Michigan landed its fifth commitment in the Class of 2018 on Wednesday as four-star center Colin Castleton committed to the Wolverines.
A native of Daytona Beach, Florida, the 6-foot-11 Castleton is regarded as the No. 120 overall prospect in the Rivals national Class of 2018 rankings. With shooting touch out to the perimeter and upside to develop in other areas of his game, Castleton is a very good fifth commitment for the Wolverines in the Class of 2018.
With the way that head coach John Beilein likes to space the floor, Castleton could be a nice fit for Michigan’s system as he could develop into a solid addition. Castleton is the fourth four-star prospect to commit to the Wolverines in this class, joining guard David Dejulius and forwards Brandon Johns and Ignas Brazdeikis. Three-star wing Adrian Nunez also committed to Michigan earlier this week as this is an impressive five-man group to build with.
As a junior at Father Lopez High School, Castleton averaged 23.3 points, 11 rebounds and 5.4 blocks per game.
