Michigan’s wait could be over Tuesday as Caris LeVert is expected to announce whether or not he’ll return for his senior season with the Wolverines or forgo his final year for the 2015 NBA draft, the Michigan Daily reported Monday evening.
According to the Michigan Daily, the news stems from a representative of a campus honor society known as Order of Angell, sending over a list of 22 names -- including LeVert -- all of whom accepted an invitation of membership for the 2015-16 academic year.
In a comment to Mlive.com’s Brendan Quinn, a Michigan spokesman wouldn’t confirm a decision is coming from LeVert Tuesday, simply stating, “We are hopeful to have some more information tomorrow.”
LeVert is considered a late first round pick by many NBA draft experts after landing in the middle of the first round of most mock drafts to start his junior season.
LeVert’s junior year can be seen as mildly successful with a disappointing finish due to a fracture in the same foot he had surgery on a year ago at this time.
Averaging 14.9 points and just shy of five rebounds per game in 18 games, LeVert led the Wolverines in both statistical categories, as well as assists and minutes played.
LeVert was sidelined for the final 14 games of the 2014-15 season as the Wolverines sunk to a 16-16 finish.
Should LeVert decide to return to Michigan, the Wolverines will have all 13 scholarships filled up with the addition of German forward Moritz Wagner this summer.
