Michigan is already getting a head start on its 2019 class with the addition of Taylor Currie.

The 4-star center announced his commitment on his Twitter account:

According to Scout.com, the 6'8" player is the No. 19 center in the country and No. 91 overall player for 2019. 

Currie is undersized for the position but is a good finisher around the rim. He is also capable of knocking down shots from the outside, perfect for John Beilein's offense at Michigan.

Considering he still has two more years of high school action left, there is also plenty of time to improve his game and potentially add some size to his frame.

"Obviously, I have to keep playing hard and work to improve my game because I would like to shoot the ball a little bit more consistently, and maybe handle it better," Currie said in March, per Sam Meads of MLive.com. "I just want to improve my game all-around."

The Ohio native is not only the first addition to the Michigan 2019 class, he is one of only five players in Scout.com's top 100 already committed to a school, most notably among the group is LaMelo Ball's commitment to UCLA.
