It was just four days ago that Wooden Award winner, Trey Burke announced he was leaving for the NBA. After his decision, came the domino effect. Three days after Burke's decision, came Tim Hardaway Jr. and his decision to leave for the NBA. Now it has trickled down to the one-year wonders in Ann Arbor. Will Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III stay or go? Reports have them both staying.

Thursday morning, Robinson III and McGary called a press conference for Thursday at 4:30 pm. Of course, there's already speculation about their decision, before one was even made. Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports is reporting that the two will stay for a sophomore season. Robinson III and McGary have been best friends before their time in Ann Arbor, playing on the same AAU basketball team during high school, which is the reason why the two tied their decisions together.

Before the final four, McGary had told mlive.com, "I'm 100% staying," but then decided to take back what he had said due to not giving it a lot of thought. Following the Burke and Hardaway announcement, Michigan can still remain a top-ten team if Robinson III and McGary return, due to their positions having little depth. However, one thing that is certain, is the uncertainty. McGary has tweeted, "This is my decision, until I say it, nothing's true." That sentence will leave all of Wolverine Nation on the edge of their seats as they await the news.

The news conference for the two will be held on Thursday at 4:30 pm in Ann Arbor.
