2011-2012 Season

Report: Trey Burke “inquiring about his NBA draft status”

Trey-Burke-Michigan-Hoops-3[1]Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press caught up with Trey Burke’s father, Benji, regarding Burke’s NBA draft situation. Here’s a snippet:

“I think that, for the most part, when you have a season as a freshman like he did, the NBA, they like them young. They think their ceiling is higher when they’re young,” Benji Burke said today. “Trey had some good games and a solid season for a freshman. It’s going to be one of the weaker point guard drafts in years.

“The second thing is he was considered high. He does have some juice right now. It didn’t end well, but he ended up having some great games. He’s got to be one of the top five freshman guards in the country. He got a hold of some information, and you at least need to inquire.

“I can’t say he’s coming back, can’t saying he’s leaving. If it had my way, he’d be coming back.”

More in the Detroit Free Press. The deadline to withdraw from the NBA Draft this season is April 10th. A few additional notes after the jump.
