College basketball's National Player of the Year, Trey Burke, announced Sunday afternoon that he will forego his junior and senior seasons at the University of Michigan to enter the 2013 NBA Draft, where he will likely be made a lottery pick by some lucky team (hopefully the Pistons).
Shortly after making the announcement, Burke posted twice on his Facebook page, discussing the decision and ultimately thanking his fans for all the support. The second message also linked to a fan video commemorating Burke's legendary two-year college career, which I have embedded for your pleasure below:
Thank you for the memories, Trey Burke.
