Michael is rated as the No. 108 player in the Class of 2020 by 247 Sports’ composite ratings and the No. 4 player in North Carolina. He would be the second-highest rated prospect in Pitt’s current Class of 2020.
The Panthers remaining top targets include Michael, Erie small forward Will Jeffress, potentially reclassifying Malian center Adama Sanogo, Canadian guard Karim Mane and Rice shooting guard transfer Trey Murphy III.
