Isaiah Livers announces return to Michigan

Isaiah Livers announced today that he’ll withdraw from the NBA Draft and return to Michigan for his senior season.

“What a crazy couple of months. However, I have learned a great deal from this process, and I’m extremely excited to return to Ann Arbor,” Livers said in a statement. “My family and I are so appreciative of Coach Howard and all the staff for letting us really explore my dream of playing in the NBA. While it was a limited process due to COVID-19, I want to thank all the NBA teams who took the time to talk to me. The information I gathered is going to be invaluable moving forward. But now, we have unfinished business in Ann Arbor. I cannot wait to do everything I can and help lead this team to great things.”

“It was a great afternoon when Isaiah stopped into my office and told us he would be returning,” said Juwan Howard. “The opportunity for Isaiah, and his family, to take a deep dive and learn as much as they could about professional basketball is a blessing. Now, he has even more information to know what he needs to do to reach that next level and fulfill his dreams. For us, we not only get a skilled and experienced veteran back, we get a true leader and one of the best young men I have met.”

Livers averaged 12.9 points and four rebounds per game and shot 40.2% from 3-point range as a junior.

    Need a season so bad. Michigan at Oregon has been circled on my calendar for years now, but I’m not sure I’ll be allowed to go (or want to…)!
