ESPN Says DJ Wilson Will Leave Michigan

ESPN Says DJ Wilson Will Leave Michigan

Wait, wut?

ESPN did its early projections for 2018 and made the bold statement that DJ Wilson is a “foregone conclusion” to enter the NBA draft.  I think this is wrong and dumb, DJ Wilson clearly isn’t ready for the NBA.  One more year, like his last season, could make him a lottery pick…leaving would be a gross miscalculation.

Here is the ESPN prediction for Michigan:

 22. Michigan Wolverines

No matter how good a prospect you are, it can be easy to get lost in Kentucky’s annual NBA churn. Former Kentucky guard Charles Matthews found refuge from this uncertainty with a transfer to Michigan, and he’ll take the floor for coach John Beilein next season. The timing couldn’t be better, as Michigan will lose heart-and-soul point guard Derrick Walton Jr., as well as senior off-guard Zak Irvin. (Xavier Simpson and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman will help in this regard.) Forward D.J. Wilson‘s game flourished down the stretch to the point that the NBA seems like a foregone conclusion, and that’s a heavy blow, at least relative to the opportunity cost of a fully realized Wilson back on a college floor for one more season. Still, forward Moritz Wagner — himself an intriguing draft prospect — could excel with more touches.

This is another case of a non-local “journalist” yapping.  Just like “Harbaugh isn’t coming to Michigan.”
