According to ESPN
, Michigan sophomore big man Mitch McGary will declare for the NBA draft after testing positive for marijuana which would result in a yearlong NCAA suspension.
Here is what McGary had to say:
"Being a part of a program that values integrity, it is important to let everyone know of a poor decision I recently made," McGary said in a statement released by the school Friday. "I tested positive for marijuana during the NCAA tournament. We were notified of that result after the Final Four."
"I regret thoroughly disappointing my family, coaches and administration," the statement read. "Despite all of this they have been understanding and helpful over the last couple of weeks. I take full responsibility for this poor choice and want to apologize to everyone, especially those I have grown close to during my fabulous two years at the University of Michigan."
McGary averaged 7.8 points and 6.6 rebounds in his two-year career at Michigan. He played in only eight games in 2013-14 before a back injury ended his season in mid-December.
