Literally stolen out from under the Ohio State Buckeyes, Trey Burke went on to have a brilliant career with Michigan.

In his two seasons as a Wolverine,  Burke led the maize and blue to the 2012-13 national title game, while helping the Wolverines to a 55-18 record.

Burke averaged 16.9 points per game along with 5.9 assists. But it’s was the bushel of awards he grabbed that was amazing. If being named the National Player of the Year in 2014 wasn’t enough, he was awarded the:

John Wooden NPofY

Naismith NPofY

Oscar Robertson NPofY

AP, NABC, and Sports Illustrated Players of the Year.

Burke is in his second year as a point guard for the Utah Jazz. He averages 12.4 points and 5.6 assists per game.


Obviously not part of this gang of five,  former Wolverine Jamal Crawford is still lighting it up 16 years in the league. Crawford has a career average of 15.6 points per game.
