Davis Moseley of 247sports.com has been a busy man covering the Michigan basketball coaching change lately. He's been mentioning a laundry list of names who could fill out May's first team next winter. The names are certainly both exciting and intriguing at the same time. Out of the names he has researched, Cade Tyson is the leading scorer from Belmont, but not the highest ranked transfer available.

Below are four of the hottest names who could (and I can't stress could enough) be starters or reserves if and when they transfer to Ann Arbor in the near future, according to Moseley. He also mentions Liam McNeeley, perhaps a Kansas lean, who is the top uncommitted recruit in the country and could be considering May and Michigan basketball now.

1. Dante Maddox Jr.-Guard, Toledo

Maddox is down to eight schools, one of which is just an hour drive from Toledo. The Rockets guard has shot over 40% from three in three of his four years in college. In his last six games as a Rocket, Maddox Jr. scored in double digits. In fact, he only scored in single digits fives times in 2023-24. He shot 50% from the field in a loss to Mountain West tournament champion New Mexico in November.

Maddox is a grad transfer which is good news for his chances of getting into the university, if he chooses to do so of course. Maddox transferred from Cal State Fullerton already and had two points in the NIT loss to Michigan basketball last March. Maddox feels like he could be a quality reserve for May and the Wolverines.
