Michigan Basketball: Glenn Robinson III declares for the NBA Draft

University of Michigan men’s basketball head coach John Beilein announced today Glenn Robinson III will forgo his last two years at Michigan to pursue his NBA dream and will declare for early entry into the NBA Draft.

“In a very short period of time, these two young men have had a very positive impact on the Michigan basketball program,” said Beilein. “From day one, Glenn and Nik have had the right attitude and work ethic that has helped us enjoy so much of our recent success.

“They both understand that they will need to continue to work even harder in the years to come to accomplish their goals in the NBA,” added Beilein. “We will continue to do whatever we can to assist and guide them as they take this next step in their basketball careers. We are excited for Glenn and Nik as they pursue this next stage of their life and begin their professional careers.”

Glenn said similar to what Nik said that this was his dream ever since he was seven or eight years old and said this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for him as well. He said he didn’t really make his final decision until last night.

“I have thought a lot about the next step in my career over this past year,” said Robinson. “After talking with my mom, my dad, my grandma, Coach Beilein and the coaching staff, I feel the time is right for me to begin my professional career and declare for the NBA Draft. I am confident I have the work ethic, the talent and maturity to pursue this path successfully.

I have developed many relationships and created so many positive memories that I know will last a lifetime. As excited as I am about my future, I will always be grateful for this wonderful two year experience at the University of Michigan.”
