2. Connor Essegian-Guard, Wisconsin

The Badger is mutually interested in joining the Wolverines, as stated by Moseley, some time back. His playing time significantly decreased in his sophomore year compared to his freshman campaign. He had a career high 24 as a freshman at Michigan but only went over 10 twice as a sophomore. He was also held scoreless in eight of his last 12 appearances in a Badger uniform. One happened to be the Michigan loss.

In those two outings as a rookie, Essegian went for 47 points. He clearly had motivation to make the Wolverines and Juwan Howard pay for not recruiting him harder. Essegian is not seen as an impact transfer in the rankings on 247sports and on3 because of his lackluster sophomore year. Michigan should know first hand what he possesses in his arsenal though.

3. Danny Wolf-Power Forward/Center, Yale

Wolf is Moseley's highest-rated transfer on the board at 247sports. He's a walking double-double. Wolf didn't have less than five rebounds in any game during his sophomore season. He's a seven-foot stretch big who may or may not have Michigan in the lead for his services. He reportedly has a destination in mind already. The Ivey leaguer shouldn't have any problems getting admitted to Michigan but don't be upset or surprised if it's not a match.

Wolf catapulted his stock with the Auburn upset and by increasing his stats in every major category. Wolf earned a first team all Ivy league selection because of his improvement. Ideally he would be a key bench player if May can snag his big man from FAU, along with him.
