WHO'S PROBABLY GONE?

Trey Burke (Michigan): The Wooden Award winner grabbed every notable individual honor and nearly led Michigan to the national championship on Monday night. There's just no reason for Burke (18.6 PPG, 6.7 APG) to come back, especially since he's clearly a lottery pick after such an incredible season.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (Michigan): Something crazy could happen. Michigan's four NBA prospects could decide that they have unfinished business and return for another season. But it's not likely. Hardaway's family refuted a report that stated he'd made up his mind about turning pro last week. Hardaway, however, will probably go. Why stay? A bunch of bigger, quicker and more skilled wings will enter the mix in 2014. It's hard to imagine Hardaway (14.5 PPG, 37.4 percent from beyond the arc) boosting his stock any higher than he did during his team's run to the national title game. Now is the right time for him.

WHO'S ON THE FENCE?

Mitch McGary (Michigan): If the freshman likes money, he should turn pro. He led Michigan to the national title game in a breakout postseason performance that changed the way NBA scouts viewed him. Now, he's a projected lottery pick on some boards after recording three double-doubles in the NCAA tournament. This could be the 6-10 prospect's best opportunity to earn a slot in the lottery. He has a lot to consider.

Glenn Robinson III (Michigan): Another guy who should turn pro if he likes expendable cash. But his father, Glenn Robinson Jr., made plenty during his time in the NBA, so he probably doesn't need it. Robinson (11.0 PPG) could take his midrange game to the pros, or he could return and enjoy BMOC status. Tough choices. Both enticing.


What do you think happens?

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

    I think Burke is really struggling with this. So close to the brass ring .........but I think he goes along with Hardaway.

    Robinson and McGary stay.
    Go Blue!!

      Burke goes. Hardaway stay's and graduates cause he's smart and realizes his NBA career will probably be short and that degree is a nice fallback. GR3 and Mitch both come back for 1 more year.

        I'll be tickled pink if we only lose Burke.

          Burke and Hardaway leave, Mitch and I pray GRIII stay. GRIII is the least ready of the 3 but may have the highest upside. He needs to stay and develop putting the ball on the floor and playing with his back to the basket (same with McGary).

          Burke and Hardaway have pretty much tapped out development wise. Burke would start for a lot of NBA teams tomorrow. Hardaway's not a high draft pick but he's a likely a 2nd round pick no matter when he comes out and at this point could only hurt his stock by staying.

            Burke is supposed to announce tomorrow what he is doing. Article I read said he is still up in the air, but I would be shocked if he returned. What else is there to accomplish besides a NCAA Championship? I think everyone else stays. Hardaway would benefit from being the leader and showing he can be called upon to be a consistent scorer. Mitch gets the starter minutes and dominated the front lines of the B1G, and GR3 shows that his mid season slump was just a first year thing.

                no shock.  hopefully the other 3 call a group presser and announce they are staying.  that would be awesome.

                  Just saw the headline on Yahoo. No surprise. To go from under-rated recruit to Player of the year is quite impressive.
                    Hopefuly he lands on a team that he can get some good minutes and prove his worth. I know some are still concerned with his size.

                    Burke will be the only one. I think he is actually thinking about staying though.
