Report: Grad transfer Jaaron Simmons to remove name from NBA Draft consideration, enroll at Michigan

Graduate transfer Jaaron Simmons will reportedly remove his name from NBA Draft consideration and enroll at Michigan.

It appears that graduate transfer point guard Jaaron Simmons has determined what he will do with his future.

That future, according to MLive's Brendan Quinn, is in Ann Arbor.

The point guard told Quinn that he will be removing his name from NBA Draft consideration and enroll at Michigan for his final year of eligibility.

"I'm gonna pull my name out of the draft," Simmons told Quinn. "I haven't officially done it yet, but that's definitely the way I'm going."

Simmons announced his intentions to transfer to U-M in April but would continue to pursue professional basketball if the option were available. While he did not receive an invite to the NBA Combine, he did hear from a handful of NBA teams, according to Quinn. Now, with U-M on the horizon, he will likely be tasked with filling the void former point guard Derrick Walton Jr. left behind.

He finished his career at Ohio University averaging 15.5 points and 7.9 assists per game.

According to NCAA transfer rules, Simmons is eligible to play immediately and will have one season remaining.
