Iggy Brazdeikis will have company in the upcoming NBA draft. Charles Matthews and Jordan Poole have also declared themselves and will sign with agents.
Under new NCAA rules, they intend to sign agents, who will work with U-M coaches & assist in evaluation & pre-draft process

However, this doesn’t mean that all three are headed to the NBA draft. A new rule in college basketball allows players to sign with agents and declare for the draft but still return.
This allows players to go through the pre-draft process and workouts and evaluate where they would likely be picked. If they feel that they would improve their draft stock by coming back to school, then they are allowed to.
The most likely scenario seems to be Brazdeikis and Matthews leaving for the draft and being selected by an NBA team. Poole is the most likely to return, but Michigan fans should prepare for the possibility that all three could be gone next year. That would obviously devastate Michigan basketball.
What do you think? Will all three leave or will some stay?
