Mitch McGary failed an NCAA drug test and will enter the NBA Draft. Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports broke the news on Friday morning. McGary would have faced a one-year suspension if he wanted to stay at Michigan.
The Michigan center burst onto the national scene in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, leading the Wolverines' run to the National Championship Game.
Back problems lingered throughout the summer and into the 2014 season. He was shut down in mid-December, after appearing in just eight games.
