Wolverines' Wagner staying in school, Wilson to NBA

- Michigan forward Moritz Wagner announced Wednesday he will be returning to the Wolverines for his junior season, while forward D.J. Wilson announced he is staying in the NBA Draft.

Wagner, 20, initially submitted his name to be drafted but did not hire an agent.  The 6-foot-11 German native averaged a career high 23.9 minutes, 12.1 points & 4.2 rebounds last season for the Big Ten Tournament champions. 

The 6-foot-10 Wilson, who also had two years of college eligibility left, averaged 11 points in 2016-17.

Wilson's departure means Michigan loses three starters from the team that won the Big Ten Tournament and reached the Sweet 16 last season. Derrick Walton and Zak Irvin were seniors.

May 24th is the deadline to drop out of the draft and return to school.
