Michigan’s Ibi Watson announced on Thursday evening that he will be transferring out of the program.
During my time at the University Michigan I have learned and experienced so much. I enjoyed the relationships and memories that I made. Thank you to the coaching staff and my teammates for making my experience so great! After much thought, I have decided to explore other options. pic.twitter.com/tlCQrqQKek— Ibi Watson (@ibi_watson_2) April 12, 2018
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.
