Michigan proved it can be a dangerous NCAA Tournament team.

Two Michigan Wolverines forwards made head-scratching decisions Monday.

Moritz Wagner and D.J. Wilson both announced on Twitter that they will declare for the 2017 NBA Draft without hiring agents.

Wilson, a 6-foot-10, 240-pound sophomore, averaged 11.0 points and 5.3 boards per game this past season for the Big Ten tournament champions. He has the ability to score from the block or step out and hit 3-pointers.

Wagner, also asophomore, averaged 12.1 points and 4.2 rebounds this past season while shooting 40 percent from beyond the arc. He has the versatility to play small forward at the next level.

Both players have until May 24 to decide whether to return to school.

Michigan has emerged as one of the front runners for McDonald's All-AmericanMohamed Bamba, a 6-11 center, that is ranked No. 3 in the 2017 class by 247 Sports.

Bamba would have unlimited playing opportunities at Michigan should Wagner and Wilson both keep their names in the draft.
