The Skinny:

When Michigan lost Tim Hardaway Jr. and Player of the Year Trey Burke to the NBA before this season, many wondered who would carry the load for the Wolverines. Most felt it would be Glenn Robinson III or Mitch McGary to pick up most of the slack, but it was Canadian standout Nik Stauskas that exploded onto the scene this season. Shedding the label of strictly a shooter, Stauskas led the Big Ten in scoring and took home the conference’s POY award this season and earned second team All-America honors as well. Now, after some speculation, Stauskas has made it official that he will be testing the NBA Draft waters.
