His junior season at Michigan is done. And despite his injury, he'll have a decision to make once the Wolverines' 2014-15 year is over. NBA, or college. On Tuesday, Stauskas said he'd be more than willing to help his former teammate if he needs it. But his advice is simple. "Explore all your options," Stauskas said. "Talk to the right people. Make a lot of calls. Talk with your family, the people you trust most. And then just follow what's right for yourself after that. "With a guy as talented as him, there's no right or wrong decision. It's just whatever he feels is best." Booth Newspapers
