Michael is a 23-year-old Venezuelan-American player who has been a member of the Venezuelan national team since 2012. In his senior year at South Carolina (2015-16) Michael played 32 games and recorded averages of 14.5 ppg and 7.7 rpg. His school made it to the NIT Sweet 16. His solid play that season earned him spots in the NABC All-District 21 2nd Team, the USBWA All-District III Team, and the All-SEC 1st Team.
