Michigan forward Glenn Robinson III will forgo his final two years of eligibility and enter the NBA Draft, according to a report from Jake Fischer of the Boston Globe.

According to the report, Robinson has not yet informed the school of his intentions, but has signed with an agent.

Robinson averaged 13.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists for the Wolverines, helping Michigan reach the National Championship game last season. The Wolverines lost to Kentucky in the Elite Eight this season.

"Robinson III started the season as a potential pick but has watched his stock fade while struggling to prove to scouts that he can hit enough perimeter shots to play the 3 in the NBA,” ESPN draft analyst Chad Ford said about Robinson.

The 6-foot-6, 220 pounder, is the son of former Purdue All-American Glenn Robinson. Robinson III averaged 11 points in his freshman campaign, but both his field-goal and three-point shooting percentages declined this season.
