A pair of Michigan Wolverine sophomores -- guard Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III -- will forego their final two years of eligibility and have declared for the 2014 NBA draft in June.


Michigan Wolverine sophomores Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III declared for the NBA draft. 

The Wolverines issued a press release about the development on their official athletics website on April 15:

"University of Michigan men's basketball head coach Jon Beilein announced today (Tuesday, April 15) that sophomores Glenn Robinson III (St. John, Ind./Lake Central) and Nik Stauskas (Mississauga, Ont./St. Mark's School [Mass.])will forgo their final two years of eligibility and submit the necessary paperwork to declare for early entry into the 2014 National Basketball Association (NBA) Draft."

Stauskas said he is ready to pursue his lifelong dream of playing in the pros, per MGoBlue.com.

"For as long as I can remember I have had a goal of playing in the NBA, whether it was on my backyard court or winning the Big Ten title at Crisler Center. 

"Following some heartfelt discussions with my family, Coach Beilein and the rest of the coaching staff, I am ready to pursue my goals and begin my NBA career."

Stauskas put to rest any doubts people may have about him regarding his decision to turn pro, per The Detroit News' Mark Snyder

"They're going to find out quick, they're going to learn just like everybody else in the Big Ten learnerd.

"Because that's the thing about me, I always find a way to stay motivated. I always find a way to have a chip on my shoulder. 

"Whether that's people talking about me or things in my own head, I'll find a way to keep expanding my game. I know I always have new things to work on."

For his part, Robinson echoed his teammate's sentiments in the press release from the Wolverines.

"I have thought a lot about the next step in my career over this past year. 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.

"It has truly been a blessing to have had the opportunity to attend the University of Michigan and be part of this basketball program. The Wolverine fans and U-M alumni are the best in the world.

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

Snyder notes Robinson watched a live Indiana Pacers game last week with his family. It was at that game when he told his mother that he's not far off from the players in terms of size and talent. He also got his blessing to turn pro from his father Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson, the Purdue alumnus and NBA veteran.

Robinson also consulted former Wolverines and current NBA players Trey Burke of the Utah Jazz and Tim Hardaway, Jr. of the New York Knicks, Snyder adds. 

Beilein lauded Stauskas and Robinson for their contributions to the program and expressed excitement for the next step in their lives. 

"In a very short period of time, these two young men have had a very positive impact on the Michigan basketball program. 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. 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."

In a related development, preseason All-American Mitch McGary, who was limited to just eight games last season due to a back injury, has not announced whether he will return in 2014, notes The Detroit News' Rod Beard. 

Stauskas averaged 17.5 points and 3.3 assists while Robinson chipped in with 13.1 points and 4.4 rebounds during the 2013 NCAA season, per Beard.
