WXYZ — The Wolverines lost their head coach to the NBA, and it appears it will lose it's best freshman as well.

Ignas Brazdeikis has opted to keep his name in the NBA draft and forgo his opportunity to return to Michigan for his sophomore campaign.

Brazdeikis averaged 14.9 points, 5.4 rebounds just under an assist a game while shooting 46.2% from the floor.

He has been projected as a second round pick in many different NBA mock drafts.
