When Mike Smith announced that he was not going to be returning to Michigan for another season, the Wolverines started looking for a potential replacement and they found one in Devante Jones, who transferred from Coastal Carolina.
But when Jones announced he was declaring himself eligible for the 2021 NBA Draft, some Wolverines fans thought they could lose him before he ever even suited up for the maize and blue.
Well, those fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Jones is reportedly withdrawing from the draft and returning to college for the 2021-22 season.
