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.

    This is awesome, and Coach Howard’s reaction may be even better. Eli’s presence on this team raises the ceiling, and having players like him really will help instill the culture Coach Howard is trying to create.
