Michigan Wolverines Freshman Guard Trey Burke May Enter The NBA Draft

Trey Burke is strongly considering entering the NBA Draft.

Michigan Wolverines freshman guard Trey Burke is considering leaving school for the NBA Draft, according to his father, Benji. Via Mark Snyder of The Detroit Free Press:

"I think that, for the most part, when you have a season as a freshman like he did, the NBA, they like them young. They think their ceiling is higher when they’re young," Benji Burke said today. "Trey had some good games and a solid season for a freshman. It’s going to be one of the weaker point guard drafts in years."

Burke was named the Big 10 Freshman of the Year after leading the Wolverines in scoring (14.8 points) and assists (4.6 assists) on the way to a share of the Big 10 regular season title. He is, however, undersized at just 5-foot-10, 180 pounds.

The deadline to declare for the draft is April 29, but the deadline to pull out of the draft and return to school is April 10.
