Ann Arbor, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Michigan guard Caris LeVert announced Tuesday that he will return for his senior season in 2015-16.
LeVert had been projected as a potential lottery pick in the upcoming NBA Draft prior to an injury-shortened junior campaign in which he played in just 18 games before fracturing his left foot.
The 2013-14 second team All-Big Ten selection averaged 14.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists before sustaining the injury in mid-January.
"After considering my options, I am excited to announce I will return for my senior year," LeVert said. "Coming back allows me to keep working towards my Michigan degree and take the next steps in my development as a player, teammate and a leader of our program. Michigan is a very special place and the college experience only comes once. The future is bright and I am blessed to be part of it."
LeVert, a member of Michigan's 2012-13 national runner-up team as a freshman, averaged 12.9 points and 4.3 rebounds while shooting over 40 percent from 3- point range as a sophomore.
