Michigan Wolverines freshman Caleb Houstan has reportedly earned an invitation to compete in the NBA draft combine, according to Chris Balas of On3.

Houstan, a former five-star recruit from the Montverde Academy, averaged 10.1 points, four rebounds and 1.4 assists on 35.5% shooting from 3-point range in 34 games. He started in every game for the Wolverines and led the team with 60 3-pointers.

The 6-foot-8 forward was once viewed as a potential lottery pick but failed to live up to expectations placed on him. He declared for the draft last month and left open the option to return to school to gain feedback on his stock prior to the June 1 early-entry withdrawal deadline.

The combine will run May 16-22 in Chicago, Illinois, and feature representatives from all 30 teams. Teams each year submit a list of the players they would like to see invited, typically those with the highest odds of getting drafted.

The event will feature 5-on-5 games, strength and agility testing, shooting drills, measurements and other related on-court exercises. Prospects will have the opportunity to improve their draft stock in a competitive environment against their peers.

The NBA draft will take place on June 23.
