Michigan freshman guard Jett Howard announced he’ll forgo his remaining eligibility and enter the 2023 NBA Draft.

More from The Wolverine’s Anthony Broome:

He averaged 14.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2 assists per game this season, starting and playing in 29 games for Michigan this season.

Howard is expected to be a first-round pick this summer.

“This was a great learning year for me,” Howard told ESPN. “It’s what I needed. It taught me how to play within a pro style offense and be effective, to get out of my comfort zone, and play with other good players.”

He continued: “I’ve had both ankles nagging for a while, so my dad and the coaching staff agreed with the specialist that it’s better for me to get to 100%,” Howard said. “I was only 50-60% for most of the Big Ten. My dad being the coach he is was looking out for me and wanted the best for my health. He understands that ankles are tricky. I met with a specialist after the Big Ten Tournament and they wanted me to rehab for four to five weeks. Thank God it doesn’t require surgery or anything like that.”

Michigan State was the lone Big Ten team to make the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament. Since the Spartans lost to Kansas State in the East Regional semifinal, the conference is done playing. Despite not making the Big Dance this season, Howard has the most NCAA Tournament wins among Big Ten coaches since he was hired in 2019, leading the Wolverines to the Elite Eight in 2021 and Sweet 16 last season.

NCAA Tournament wins by Big Ten coach since Juwan Howard was hired at Michigan:

Juwan Howard — 5
Tom Izzo — 3
Mike Woodson — 2
Greg Gard — 2
Matt Painter — 2
Brad Underwood — 2
