The father of Michigan point guard Trey Burke is disputing a CBS Sports report that his son is declaring for the NBA Draft by declaring his son hasn't yet left the Wolverines. He's using everyone's favorite platform to dispute published reports:
Trey Burke has not declared for the NBA draft. He is still enrolled at the University of Michigan.— Benji Burke (@Benjib10) April 4, 2012
If Burke is indeed turning pro, it would be the second consecutive year Michigan has lost its point guard to the NBA. In the 2011-'12 season, Burke averaged 14.8 points, 4.6 assists and 3.5 rebounds after replacing Darius Morris, who left early at the end of the 2010-'11 season.
Three Michigan players have transfered out of the program since the Wolverines' first-round exit in the NCAA Tournament ended a 24-10 campaign. Despite the attrition, Michigan is considered a dark horse Final Four pick next season due to a loaded incoming freshman class.
