Michigan’s Ibi Watson announced on Thursday evening that he will be transferring out of the program.

Watson spent two seasons with the program, but he was never truly able to crack the rotation, averaging just 2.2 points in 5.2 minutes as a sophomore.

He was a member of the 2016 Michigan recruiting class, meaning that he likely would have spent the rest of his Michigan career battling for playing time against the likes of Zavier Simpson, Charles Matthews and Jordan Poole, all of whom are also underclassmen.
