ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Benji Burke, the father of Michigan point guard Trey Burke, says his son has not made a decision to leave for the NBA Draft.

Burke’s father told WolverineNation in a text message Wednesday that his son is “still at U-M.” When asked if his son had made a decision yet, Burke’s father replied, “No.”

Burke’s father also tweeted Wednesday: “Trey Burke has not declared for the NBA draft. He is still enrolled at the University of Michigan.”

The Big Ten co-Freshman of the Year has been mulling whether to enter the draft since Michigan’s season ended with a Round of 64 loss to Ohio in the NCAA tournament.

Burke led the Wolverines in scoring (14.8) and assists (4.6). If he ends up staying, he is the only point guard on the roster for the 2012-13 season for Michigan. If he leaves, Michigan would be without a point guard.

Michigan coach John Beilein has not addressed Burke’s situation publicly.

Michigan has had players leave early for the NBA the past two seasons: Darius Morris after last season and Manny Harris after the 2009-10 season.
