According to multiple reports, 4-star shooting guard Jordan Poole has committed to Michigan’s 2017 class. The 6’4,” 180-pounder out of Milwaukee Rufus King High School is coach John Beilein’s first verbal for the next, next group.

“He’s going to be a good one,” King coach Jim Gosz told Brendan F. Quinn of MLive. “He’s going to be a helluva player in that system. Beilein’s two-guard offense is perfectly suited for him. He’s a perfect fit.”

Poole, the No. 21-ranked shooting guard and No. 92 recruit overall, had offers from Auburn, Bradley, Drake and Illinois. Indiana and Xavier were among his top choices. According to 247Sports, Wisconsin also expressed interest in the local prep star.

According to Quinn, Gosz said that Poole possesses a rare talent. A craft that’s gone by the wayside, to an extent.

“He has a commodity that is kind of a lost art — he shoots the ball and it goes in,” Gosz told Quinn. “A lot of guys nowadays are higher fliers who go to the rim. This kid can flat-out shoot. He’s just an unbelievable shooter.”

Brian Bowen, a 4-star small forward out of LaPorte, Ind., is also of high interest for Michigan. According to 247Sports, the La Lumiere star is the No. 6-ranked player at his position and No. 23 overall.
