(UPDATED: Burke made it official on Sunday. He’s off to the NBA.)

Trey Burke, the national player of the year and Michigan star, may be going pro. He’s announced that he will announce something further on Sunday, at least.

Burke is a point guard who can shoot. Like, really, really shoot, and he should be a hot commodity as an NBA prospect after his performance in the NCAA tournament, which ended for the Wolverines in a title game loss to Louisville.

DraftExpress has Burke slotted in as a lottery pick, possibly going seventh. Burke could have gone pro last season, but there’s little denying that his performance this season improved his draft stock.

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.

Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart is, thus far, considered to be the only point guard who may go ahead of Burke, should he declare he is going to the NBA.

      He’s gonzo and LateMoney wishes him well. Hope he keeps taking classes in the offseason and gets his degree.

      way to go FNC… in classless fashion, you fulfilled ‘scummy’ on all fronts… WRONG… still!

    He’ll never be worth more.

    feels like Allen Iverson, the second coming. I was very unimpressed with his team play in the tourney. roll around a screen and jack up a 24 foot 3 pointer isn’t gonna get him any titles at the next level either.

      What tournament were you watching, bowmanj35? Was there another one?
