Houstan averaged 10.1 points and 4 rebounds per game while shooting 36% from 3-point range as a freshman, helping Michigan to the Sweet 16. He was a five-star recruit and McDonald’s All-American out of high school but hasn’t been consistently mocked as a first round pick.
Houstan has until June 1st to decide whether to stay in the NBA Draft or return to school and retain his eligibility.

I suspect the NBA is going to tell him: get stronger, work on your handle, develop some moves off the bounce, get stronger, work on moving your feet on D, work on shooting coming off screens, get stronger, somehow learn how to shoot better away from home, and get stronger.
And then one team might say, “and we’ll show you how”
“Do you even lift?”
