ANN ARBOR, Mich. – University of Michigan forward Moritz Wagner announced Saturday that he will forego his final year of college basketball eligibility and enter the NBA draft.
Wagner made the announcement in a Player's Tribune article. He said he will officially sign with an agent, meaning he will not be able to back out of the draft process.
Wagner, a 6-11 forward from Berlin, was the heart and soul of a Michigan team that won its second straight Big Ten Tournament title and went to the national championship game.
Wagner led the Wolverines with 14.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. He played his best basketball on the biggest stage, scoring 40 points and grabbing 22 rebounds combined in the Final Four and national championship games.
Michigan won eight NCAA Tournament games in Wagner's three seasons, including a Sweet 16 appearance in 2017.
