Not only did Mitch McGary help the Michigan Wolverines reach the Final Four for the first time since 1993 (and inspire articles like this in the process), but his play during the last few weeks of his freshman season left him with an extremely interesting decision about whether he should declare for the NBA Draft.

If you had a pulse during the month of March, you know that McGary went from a complete afterthought behind guys like Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr., Glen Robinson III, and Nik Stauskas during the regular season, to one of the driving forces behind Michigan’s run through the NCAA Tournament. Those who watched McGary play during the regular season saw a kid who had a ton of potential based on his size and combination of skill/hustle, but one who looked like he was going to have to wait until next season for his official coming out party to commence.
