Player Profile: Caris LeVert – The Rookie

As a 3-star high school recruit, Caris LeVert decided to join the University of Michigan. His early freshman season with the Michigan Wolverines wasn’t looking particularly promising, as the team’s depth chart was stacked with big names, including Trey Burke, Nik Stauskas and Tim Hardaway Jr. After getting redshirted for the first six games, he was finally given a chance on account of being a solid perimeter defender. He played an important role in Michigan’s road to the NCAA Championship game, where they narrowly lost to Louisville. He continued to improve in his sophomore season, earning a place on the All-Midwest Regional Team.
