Michigan commit Austin Hatch has been cleared to return to limited practice with his high school team, Fort Wayne Canterbury.

Michigan basketball recruit Austin Hatch has been cleared to return to practice with his high school team, Fort Wayne Canterbury, according to Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com. Hatch was granted "conditional clearance," meaning that he has to take limited minutes, and that he can't take part in every drill.

It's still unclear if Hatch will play this season, for his fifth year of eligibility with Canterbury. They're going to watch him closely in practice and see how he's progressing with his injuries. Hatch was involved in a plane crash that killed both his father and his step mother, back in 2011, which is why he was granted his fifth year of eligibility.

Regardless of his playing status this year with Canterbury, Hatch intends to commit to be part of Michigan's 2014 class. He was originally part of the 2013 class, and came in as a three-star prospect. He put up 23.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game as a sophomore in 2010-11.
