Michigan sophomore guard Trey Burke, the consensus national player of the year, will enter the NBA draft, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Michigan has scheduled a news conference for Sunday afternoon, where Burke will formalize his decision.

Most NBA executives project Burke to be a lottery pick.

Burke led the Wolverines to a brilliant season, reaching the national championship game where they lost to Louisville.

At 6-foot, Burke is able to overcome his small size for an NBA point guard with a long wingspan and terrific quickness, explosion and shooting touch.

For Michigan, Burke averaged 18.6 points and 6.7 assists per game. He was voted the Naismith national player of the year, and the Big Ten's most outstanding player.
