Dusty May is about done accepting transfers and recruits to fill his first team at Michigan, but at least one or two spots still remain open as the portal closes.

The month of May is here which means the transfer portal is closed again and Michigan's basketball account on X has posted all of its incoming players to the program. Coach May has been working tirelessly trying to put that roster together for his first season in Ann Arbor and given the circumstances so far, he's done a superior job. He still has one or two spots open. He's now just waiting patiently to seal the deal with someone. With speculation circulating about who it could be and the options dwindling, these are three names who might get the call.

1. Khani Rooths

This is the one that May and company must find a way to secure his services no matter what. Davis Mosely of 247 Sports continues to throw his name around because he has not announced where he is leaning toward yet. On3 predicts he'll wind up at Georgia, but they're not even 50% sure about that. Until he provides any further update, the uncertainty remains.

Rooths would fill a major hole right away. He can insert himself into the starting lineup from the outset. He may even be Michigan's number one option too. The trio of him, Vlad Goldin and Roddy Gayle Jr. would be lethal and a probable tournament team.

Akeem Miskdeen recruited him at Georgia and is doing the same here. If Michigan basketball wants his services then they'll have to create some kind of NIL package that will appease him to commit. Coaches will wait for the nation's top remaining uncommitted recruit if it means he chooses them.
