Moe Wagner declares for NBA Draft with heartfelt letter
Michigan junior forward Moe Wagner announced Saturday morning that he will hire an agent and enter the upcoming NBA Draft.
He was the face of the program the last two seasons thanks to his raw emotion on the court.
The German native penned a letter to Michigan fans to say his goodbyes, in partnership with The Players’ Tribune.
All dreams sound crazy…

“Michigan will always be the place where, if you work hard enough, and you work together enough – you become your best self,” Wagner penned in his letter.
Wagner averaged 14.6 PPG and over 7 rebounds in his final season. He was a part of a team that won its second-straight Big Ten Tournament, swept Michigan State, split with Ohio State, beat Purdue in the BTT title game and went to the program’s second National Championship in five years.
Michigan State fans that i have as friends told me throughout this season, “I hate Moe Wagner, but damn, is that kid good. I wish we had him.”

A fan favorite, Wagner will forever go down as a Michigan legend.
He’s currently projected as a late first- early second-round pick for the draft. The upcoming NBA Draft Combine could change that for better or worse.
