According to Michigan, Wolverines forward Isaiah Livers is withdrawing his name from the 2020 NBA Draft and he will return to Michigan for his senior season.
University of Michigan men’s basketball guard/forward Isaiah Liversannounced Friday (July 17) that he will return for his senior season and remove his name from the 2020 NBA Draft.
“What a crazy couple of months. However, I have learned a great deal from this process, and I’m extremely excited to return to Ann Arbor,” said Livers. “My family and I are so appreciative of Coach Howard and all the staff for letting us really explore my dream of playing in the NBA. While it was a limited process due to COVID-19, I want to thank all the NBA teams who took the time to talk to me. The information I gathered is going to be invaluable moving forward. But now, we have unfinished business in Ann Arbor. I cannot wait to do everything I can and help lead this team to great things.”
“It was a great afternoon when Isaiah stopped into my office and told us he would be returning,” said David and Meredith Kaplan head men’s basketball coach Juwan Howard. “The opportunity for Isaiah, and his family, to take a deep dive and learn as much as they could about professional basketball is a blessing. Now, he has even more information to know what he needs to do to reach that next level and fulfill his dreams. For us, we not only get a skilled and experienced veteran back, we get a true leader and one of the best young men I have met.”
