One out of three ain’t bad, at least in this case.

On Sunday, star Michigan basketball center Hunter Dickinson announced he will be returning to the program his junior year, completely forgoing the NBA draft process, even though he could get feedback and return. On Monday, first-year forward Moussa Diabate announced, via the program, that he’s entering the NBA draft, but he’s reportedly not hiring an agent, which could allow him to return to the program.

Later on Monday, fellow first-year Wolverine Caleb Houstan’s choice was revealed.

According to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, Houstan is entering the NBA draft, but similar to Diabate, he’s not hiring an agent, which means he can get feedback and return to the program if he so chooses.

Given Houstan’s inconsistency, it’s a smart move. He can learn what he needs to do to improve his draft stock, or, if he manages to get a favorable grade, he can choose to stay in.

Meanwhile, with Dickinson coming back for sure, the Wolverines can continue to work the offense through him. Still, the maize and blue have to find a replacement for the departing DeVante’ Jones, but they can go either with Frankie Collins, who started in Jones’ stead during his injury, and/or bring in another experienced player, such as Texas Tech’s Terrance Shannon, who is in the NCAA transfer portal.
