In a blog entry on MGoBlue.com, John Beilein stated that Wednesday’s reports of Trey Burke entering the NBA draft were premature. Here are the relevant comments for Michigan’s head coach:
First, I would like to note that Wednesday’s reports of Trey Burke’s decision to enter the NBA draft were premature.
My coaching staff and I have met with Trey and his parents several times over the past two weeks. Collectively, we have gathered and shared with each of them some necessary information that we feel will help Trey make the most informed decision for his future.
The Burke family has been very receptive to our assistance and appreciates that we have encouraged Trey to take his time and look at all of his options between now and the April 10 deadline.
With only one full week of classes remaining, Trey and his teammates, like all students at Michigan, are working diligently to complete their assignments and prepare for final exams. (Photo: Dustin Johnston)
