Moritz Wagner is making his return to Michigan Basketball.

The program announced on Wednesday that the German forward will be removing himself from the NBA Draft process and returning to Ann Arbor for his junior season.

Wagner came into his own during his second year with the Wolverines, averaging 12.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game and emerging as one of the best forwards in the country down the stretch.

Wednesday was the deadline to remove yourself from the NBA Draft process, and Wagner elected to do just that. Now, Michigan fans wait on the decision of DJ Wilson.
