2021-22 Season

Eli Brooks will return to Michigan for fifth season

Michigan guard Eli Brooks is coming back for one more season. The 6-foot-1 combo guard announced his intentions to return to Ann Arbor today.

Brooks averaged 9.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in 29.9 minutes per game as a senior and made 40% of his 3-point attempts.

The NCAA is allowing players an extra year of eligibility due to the impact of the coronavirus on the 2020-21 season. Brooks’ return doesn’t impact Michigan’s scholarship count for next season. Fellow seniors Chaundee Brown and Mike Smith announced their intentions to pursue professional opportunities while Isaiah Livers and Austin Davis haven’t made formal announcements but are expected to move on.

The Wolverines are also waiting on NBA Draft decisions from Franz Wagner, who is projected as a lottery pick, and Hunter Dickinson.

    Awesome. So glad to have him back.

    If I had one request, I’d have him working on that floater all summer long.

    Awww yeah. Eli is back to toss dimes, nail clutch threes and get that masters degree (I assume). Let’s hope he can avoid facial injuries this year!
