Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III might be heading out the Michigan basketball door, but one sophomore garnering NBA attention is assuring he's staying put.

Caris LeVert, a second team All-Big Ten selection in 2013-14 and rising prospect on many NBA draft boards, said Tuesday he's "obviously coming back" for his junior season at U-M.

"That's 100 percent -- I'm coming back," LeVert said Tuesday night, following Michigan's 53rd annual team awards banquet at Crisler Center.

LeVert confirmed that he joined Stauskas, Robinson and fellow sophomore Mitch McGary in applying for an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee following the end of season.

"There was definitely a time when I talked (about considering entering the draft) over with (the coaching staff) and my mom, but, I mean, it was kind of an easy decision for me," LeVert said.

LeVert also said he has earned an invite to the Kevin Durant Skills Academy and "will probably attend" the camp in late June.

"When I got the invitation I was very excited about that," LeVert said. "That was definitely a big day for me."

A 6-foot-6 guard who was one of two U-M players to start all 37 games last season, LeVert will be the Wolverines' leading returning scorer in 2014-15 at 12.9 points per game.

After a breakout season in 2013-14, he's now appearing as a first-round pick in 2015 mock drafts.
