    Iggy Brazdeikis, the 6-foot-8, 220-pound shooting guard from Orangeville (ON) Prep, has committed to Michigan, per his Twitter. Brazdeikis took an official visit a few weeks ago to Ann Arbor and Michigan coach John Beilein then followed with a visit to his Canadian school.

    “I chose Michigan because it is the perfect fit,” Brazdeikis said. “It felt like home when I visited. Even before Michigan began recruiting me, I loved their style of play and saw myself fitting in really well. It was the first school I knew about and the one I always wanted to go to. And most importantly the connection I built with coach Beilein, the coaching staff, and the players.”

    Brazdeikis choose the Wolverines over Florida and Vanderbilt.

    Playing on the EYBL this summer for the CIA Bounce, Brazdeikis averaged 21.1 points and 7.4 rebounds.

    “The most important thing I will bring is my mentality to do what it takes to win, but I will surely bring a lot of versatility and play-making ability to Michigan,” Brazdeikis said. “I will also bring my shooting, attacking, and passing ability. Just an overall game that will bring wins to the team.”

    Brazdeikis is the fourth member of the 2018 Michigan recruiting class along with four-stars Brandon Johns and David DeJulius and three-star Taylor Currie.

    Belien and the rest of the Michigan coaching staff think Brazdeikis can make an impact right away.

    “They see me as a playmaker creating for others but also myself,” he said. “That’s what they see me as, coming off ball screens and showing how versatile I am. He really wants me, and he sees me fitting very well in the system.”

    According to Scout, Brazdeikis is ranked as the No. 42 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 10 player at his position.
