As Ron Burgundy would say... “Well, that escalated quickly.” Former back-up Michigan Wolverines point guard Andrew Dakich graduated from Michigan in May, and he was slated to play for Qunnippiac University next season as a grad transfer.

Dakich was a walk-on at Michigan and was granted a surprise scholarship in early January, one in which he initially thought was a joke. This made him sort of a beloved figure to the Wolverines faithful. Going to Ohio State was a good decision for Dakich, but one that will draw the ire of Michigan fans and former teammates. In his career at Michigan Dakich posted 22 points and 21 assists.
