From Michigan Basketball's Twitter: "BREAKING: Trey Burke has declared for the NBA Draft and forgoes his remaining eligibility at Michigan."
Best of luck to him. Can't wait to see him in the NBA.
I'm for sure going to be a bandwagon fan to wherever he gets drafted!
If there's anything that could take the sting out of Burke leaving, it's Drake Harris committing. Not a bad day at all, Burke gets to go rep Michigan in the NBA and Drake ushers in a new era of Michigan WRs.
Good luck to Trey.
Ill be rooting for him where ever he goes. I just hope its a team like the Spurs, Heats, or Thunders where he had a better chance of developing his talent.

Good luck Trey! For pure selfish reasons I want the Pistons to take him
This. Trey Drummond and knight could form a formidable young trio in the NBA.
Happy for him and what he has done for the Michigan basketball program.
Thanks again Trey.
Michigan Vs Penn State was airing on BTN. So- it wasn't on TV.
I go to the website, click the "watch here" link...and ....Nothin! Just a moving clock, telling me what time it was.
Thanks for the coverage BTN!! Way to be on top of things!
Just luck Trey. Keep doin' what you do man!!
Wish Burke all the best. Seemed like a pretty obvious and clear decision once we got near the end of the season. Surely a lot of people were holding out hope, but it probably would have only hurt Burke to come back for another season. He has the ability to fit in with a bunch of NBA teams. Not convinced some of the teams described above, especially the Heat (?!!) are the best spots since they "develop" players. Come in, work hard, and good players will find spots. Burke did a lot of work coming from high school to college and he will probably be able to do the same from college to the NBA. Plus, he did a ton in the offseason to gain some advice from NBA players.

For my selfish reasons, I want him to go to the Pistons. And I could see Dumars picking him to fill the seats.
But I want Burke to be successful in the NBA, which means not playing for the Pistons.
I feel lucky to have watched Trey these past two years. His impact on our basketball program transcends his accolades. I have only been a Michigan fan for 5 years, but Trey Burke is without a doubt my favorite Wolverine of all time and I wish him nothing but the best. I genuinely hope he becomes a star in the NBA some day soon. Derrick Walton, you're next!
Goodbye, and good luck.
That would be a gutsy bold pick by Dumars. He badly needs this first round pick to turn out or he may be packing his bags soon.
Why only a fan for 5 years?
The Heat would be a great spot for him. I always had this weird hunch that if the Heat won it all this year, Ray Allen would retire and they would take Timmy as a 3pt guy off the bench as a replacement, given the legacy.
I think that's when he started applying/attending
I would cry if Burke went to the Heat.
Burke or THJ?
What Ducks said ^.
I always liked Michigan, thought it was a cool school. But growing up in the northeast, college sports are really not a big deal. At all. The local teams are Rutgers, Uconn, Penn State, Cuse. All of which are hours away. Unless you have a parent who attended a major university, it's rare to find diehards of a university growing up in that area. When I was applying to schools, I realized Michigan was the total package and followed them a bit (kept the channel on when they were playing) but not until I got accepted/instantly knew where I was going to school did I become a fan. But it's been four years and I'm as big of a Michigan fan as you'll find.
Better late than never.
No problem with him going to the Heat (though it seems unlikely). I was just talking about the commonly held concept that only the good teams "develop" players. Though this is true of some teams like the Spurs and the Thunder, at least in my opinion, not all. Plenty of average to bad teams develop players. The Heat are certainly a great team, but I don't think developing talent is what got them there since the majority of their production comes from free agent signings of well established talents.
THJ. And to Thomas, I agree. It's hard to gauge how good they are at developing players because of who they signed.
I fall into that category of person growing up in the Northeast with family who went to a major university. My love for Michigan was bred over countless family reunions in Canton, Ann Arbor, and (for the evil side of the family) Columbus. My grandma went to Michigan, her sister went to OSU, and the family has had a healthy rivalry ever since.
I didn't realize you were in the northeast my mistake. Let me ask you, who do you cheer for in baseball? Sox or Yanks?
