ANN ARBOR, Mich. -

Michigan's Glenn Robinson III and Nik Stauskas are entering the 2014 NBA draft, forgoing their final two years of eligibility for college basketball.

Coach John Beilein made the announcement Tuesday, saying both sophomores will submit the necessary paperwork to declare for early entry into the draft.

"In a very short period of time, these two young men have had a very positive impact on the Michigan Basketball program," said Beilein in a news release. "From day one, Glenn and Nik have had the right attitude and work ethic that has helped us enjoy so much of our recent success."

Mitch McGary has not decided if he will stay in school or go pro. McGary was not made available for interviews after his teammates had a news conference.

The Wolverines lost Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway to the NBA last year as underclassmen, but retooled well enough to win the Big Ten title and advance to an NCAA tournament regional final.
