This is his best financial move. As a fan I want him back but as a person, I wish him the best and the best means to move on with his current draft grade. You can always go back to school, you can’t always play professional sports.

This is the right choice. Thank you Moe! Will always be one of my all time favorites. He gave everything he had to this team. Good luck in the NBA!!!

Wagner will go down as one my favorite players at Michigan.

This was the right move. He wasn’t going to ge his draft stock any higher coming back for another year.

Good luck and hopefully he can enjoy a long career in the NBA.

He was really close to leaving last year, so this is no surprise.  He's really imnproved, but somehow his draft stock is slightly lower after this season.  Obviously he needs to add a few pounds, but he''' be a good NBA stretch 4 or even a 5.

but I'm happy for him and his decision to pursue his career at the highest level.

Vielen Dank für Ihre
jahre in Michigan, Herr Wagner!

I mean the guy was a junior. He played in a national championship, got a final four, and 2 big ten tournament titles. What more could he have done. Yes we would have been a great team next year but in basketball there is never any guarantees. He made the right decision. Another legend at Michigan.

Pretty amazing considering English isn't even his native language. Moe'll br successful whatever he does after basketball. Here's to hoping he gets to play against his idol Dirk and gets a "nice game" from him like Matt Damon gets from Johnny Chan in Rounders.

I truly wish him the best and I'm praying he gets drafted in the 1st round but I think one more year would have made all the difference in the world for a player like Wagner. He's not NBA ready IMO

If he ends up being a second rounder he definitely should have waited. Either way he'll go down as one of my all time favorites (outside of the Fab 5. They were something else)

Good luck to you! I enjoyed your time here at Michigan. Another all time great. I will enjoy watching Beilein mood the next bunch of players into super stars. GO BLUE!!
