(WXYZ) — Isaiah Livers has told the Michigan Wolverines he is removing his name from the 2020 NBA Draft and is returning to the school for his senior season.

"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 in a news reelase. "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."

According to the school:

In his three seasons in Ann Arbor, Livers has played in 96 career games (46 starts) and compiled an 82-27 record. He helped the Wolverines to their second straight Big Ten Tournament title in 2018 while being part of two straight Michigan NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 appearances (2018, '19). In 2018, U-M advanced to its second Final Four and national title game in six years.
