Throughout the summer and into the season, Michigan’s transfer class received criticism as the Wolverines struggled to land a quantity of players. Michigan picked up Tennessee forward Olivier Nkamhoua in early June. Nkamhoua, as well as Alabama transfer Nimari Burnett, have helped get Michigan off to a 3-0 start.
