Darius Morris, a sophomore guard and key part of the Michigan basketball team has entered the NBA draft, but has not hired an agent. He has until May 8th to withdraw his name from consideration. While we knew that Morris was going to explore his NBA options, this goes beyond showing just that initial interest. Morris has been projected in the early 2nd round of the draft. "This is the next step in gathering as much information as possible to assist Darius in making an educated decision," said U-M head coach John Beilein. "As Darius considers his options we will continue to support him in every way we can throughout the process." As for Morris: "All my life it has been a goal of mine to play in the NBA and I am blessed to have the opportunity to take this step towards that dream," said Morris. "I look forward to going through this process with the potential of playing at the next level." With a potential first round pick in the offing should he stay, it's not impossible to see him withdrawing before the deadline. We wish him luck no matter what route he takes.
