This draft class just got even weaker... Michigan's Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III are going to return to the Wolverines next year. It looks like the Big 10 will be stacked again as Indiana has a good class coming in, MSU does as well and Harris is staying there, and now Michigan has two of it's key pieces returning.
Michigan freshmen Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III will return to school, sources told CBSSports.com.
The pair will make an official announcement Thursday at 4:30 p.m. ET.
Both players were considered first-rounders, according to several NBA executives. The 6-foot-10 McGary was terrific in the NCAA tournament after playing sparingly for much of the season. Robinson was also up and down through his freshman campaign, but NBA general managers still love his potential.
McGary averaged 7.5 points and 6.3 rebounds this season, playing fewer than 20 minutes per game. During the tournament, though, McGary put up 14.3 points and 10.7 rebounds. Robinson averaged 11.0 points and 5.4 boards.
Michigan lost Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr., early to the NBA, but the Wolverines -- who lost to Louisville in the national title game -- will return McGary, Robinson, Nik Stauskas, veteran big man Jordan Morgan and point guard Spike Albrecht.
