UPDATED: Former Southfield star Carlton Brundidge not working out with Oakland

Former U-M guard Carlton Brundidge
A report last week by the Michigan Daily indicating former Southfield standout Carlton Brundidge, a pending Michigan transfer, was working out with Oakland was premature.
The tweet began "Nothing official, yet," but it seems it may not be official, ever.
Brundidge, an Oakland source said, has not spoken with the Golden Grizzlies about transferring, nor has the school requested his release from Michigan and coach John Beilein, who like many coaches won't release players in-conference but adds the stipulation that potential transfer schools not be scheduled opponents for a time of two years.
It seems "working out" may have been recreational in nature apart from the team.
Brundidge announced his departure in March after appearing in just 15 games off the bench and averaging 2.9 minutes per game. 
The former Class A First-Team All-State pick remains in transfer limbo until further notice. He gave U-M a verbal commitment as a junior in 2009 and was Beilein's first commitment for the Class of 2011, according to UMhoops.
Oakland got transfer Laval Lucas-Perry two years ago after Beilein dismissed the Flint native from the team.
Oakland has recently lined up former Clarkston point guard Mitch Baenziger, a third-team all-county selection by The Oakland Press, as a preferred walk-on, according to MIPrepZone recruiting guru Scott M. Burnsetin.
Baenziger led the Wolves to consecutive league titles and was also the Wolves' starting quarterback on a heralded squad. 
Former Oakland walk-on John Kast was also a one-time Clarkston Wolves player under Dan Fife.
