It's Official: Mitch McGary to the NBA

McGary and U-M tweet statements on the decision ... and GBW's Sam Webb posts regarding the reason.

McGary: "I am ready to move on to the next stage in my life and enter the NBA Draft." And, "Being a part of a program that values integrity, it is important to let everyone know of a poor decision I recently made.I tested positive for marijuana during the NCAA Tournament. I take full responsibility for this poor choice and want to apologize to everyone. I love the University of Michigan and all it has allowed me to do. I want to thank all the fans for embracing me. This has been the best two years of my life and I have some unbelievable memories."

Coach Beilein: "Mitch has had a tremendous impact on our program from the moment he committed to us. He has injected an enthusiasm that cannot be matched. This is why he is loved by the coaching staff, his teammates and Wolverine fans. The progress he has made on and off the court has been outstanding. His willingness to face a personal issue head on & his positive work ethic during his recent injury have helped him to grow in many ways."
