Will they stay or will they go? Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III have a difficult choice to make.
For the third year in a row, the Maize and Blue faithful will be sweating out potential NBA draft declarations. Three Wolverines could elect to turn professional within the next month, which would certainly change expectations for the 2014-15 season.
Nik Stauskas has more than likely played his final game in a Michigan uniform. Fans will be hoping against hope that he chooses to return, but there is simply nothing left for him to do in Ann Arbor. After all, he was named the Big Ten Conference Player of the Year and earned several All-American honors.
About the only flaw left in his game is defense. Seeing as that quality is not of great importance in the NBA anymore, this is not exactly a concern for teams looking to draft a high-caliber guard.
Assuming he enters the draft, an NBA scout told Brendan F. Quinn of MLive, Stauskas will "be drafted in the late lottery."
The other two Wolverines with eyes on the professional ranks, Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III, are in much different situations.
McGary is coming off back surgery, which is not going to do him any favors as the early entry deadline approaches.
Robinson's sporadic play and tendency to disappear leaves his draft projection in limbo as well. There is no doubt he has all the physical tools and freakish athleticism required to play in the NBA, but consistency and the ability to create his own shot remain worrisome to front offices.
"He just scares me because of his inconsistency," an NBA scout told Quinn.
Still, if Robinson receives a first-round projection, he could elect to polish his game on a pro roster.
Once the April 27 early-entry deadline arrives, expect Stauskas to be headed out of town, while Robinson and McGary opt to come back for one last hurrah.
