Robinson III, McGary will return to Michigan
Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary are coming back to Michigan for their sophomore seasons.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- After losing two players to the NBA, Michigan will have its other two potential NBA players back.
"We're excited to come back for another season," Robinson III said.
McGary and Robinson III were potential late lottery picks. On ESPN's Chad Ford's Big Board, Robinson III is ranked 13th, while McGary is 14th.
Robinson III said they kind of influenced each other's decisions and had discussed it this week.
Robinson III logged more minutes and started more games than any freshman in Michigan history, starting all 39 of the Wolverines' games and playing 1,312 minutes. He averaged 11 points and 5.4 rebounds.
McGary didn't become a full-time starter until the NCAA tournament, where he averaged 14.3 points and 10.7 rebounds over six games. For the season, McGary played in 39 games and averaged 7.5 points and 6.3 rebounds.
"I look forward to representing the block M on my jersey another year," McGary said.
This is the second consecutive year Michigan has had high profile players return. Guard Trey Burke came back last season and became the consensus player of the year as a sophomore along with a definite lottery pick. He announced Sunday that he would be heading to the NBA.
"We are all excited with what we saw from them," Michigan coach John Beilein said of McGary and Robinson III.
