ANN ARBOR, Mich. -

Sunday, the Wolverine's star player made a major announcement about his future.

In a news conference in Ann Arbor, Trey Burke made his decision known and confirmed what many already suspected.

The college basketball player of the year says he will skip his last two seasons at Michigan and enter the NBA draft.

Burke averaged 18.6 points -- almost four points more than he did as a freshman -- and 6.7 assists last season.

He led the Wolverines to the NCAA championship game for the first time in two decades. The 6-foot, 190-pound point guard thought about going pro a year ago after helping Michigan win its first Big

Ten title since 1986, but chose to come back to campus for his sophomore season.
