Wagner will sign with an agent. He’s expected to be a late first-round pick in June’s draft.
The German just finished his junior season with the Wolverines. He’s 6-foot-11 and helped guide Michigan to their first NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship National Championship game appearance since 2013, before losing to the Villanova Wildcats.
He averaged 14.6 points and 7.1 rebounds this season, along with 0.8 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.5 blocks. He also shot 39% from three-point range the past two seasons.
If Wagner is drafted in the first round, it will be the second straight year that Michigan has had a player go in the first round. Last season, D.J. Wilson was a first-round draft pick, as he was the 17th overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Wolverines could potentially have a third first-round draft pick in the past two drafts if redshirt soph. Charles Matthews declares for the draft. Right now, he has not made a decision.
Wagner has averaged double figures in points the past two seasons. Besides the 14.6 average this season, he averaged 12.1 points last season.
In 107 career games in Ann Arbor, Mich., he averaged 10.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.4 blocks per contest.
