Todd committed to the Wolverines on Thursday night, becoming the first 2020 recruit to choose MI since Howard was hired to replace John Beilein in May. "I want to be in the best position to win, and I feel like I'll be able to get some guys to join us".
Todd remains a tall-but-underdeveloped power forward, with a 6-foot-10 frame but less than 200 pounds to hold it, and yet his talent and potential is obvious. He will need to add more strength and learn to play in the lost post - which has a lot to do with picking Howard to coach him - but all the tools to be a force are there. He is ranked No. 7 overall.
So even though Howard didn't discuss Todd - and won't be able to until Todd signs a national letter of intent, which he can do come November 13 - it didn't make Thursday any less significant for MI. The former NBA All-Star was a star for the Wolverines from 1991 through 1993.

This summer, Todd averaged 18.3 points per game in 13 games for Nightrydas Elite on the Nike EYBL circuit. He is the first five-star player to commit to the Wolverines since Glenn Robinson III in 2012. "He is a legitimate threat from both inside the paint and on the perimeter beyond the arc". The one that tilts, then sways, then falls, pushing over one, then another, and another. He took an official visit to Ann Arbor in September and, on Thursday, became Michigan's second commitment for 2020. They are in the final five for five-star guards Josh Christopher (No. 12) and Nimari Burnett (No. 19) and the final three for five-star guard Jaden Springer (No. 16). He could be one of the last high school prospects who does not have the option to skip straight to the NBA, but those top recruits are exactly the type of players who might see themselves in Howard and be a key to maintaining Michigan's status as a national power after John Beilein's departure to the NBA.
As for Todd the player, he's an instant impact guy all the way.
