Manny Harris confirmed this morning that he is leaving the University of Michigan basketball program for the 2010 NBA draft.

After long discussions with the U-M staff and my family and friends, I have decided to pursue my dream of professional basketball and leave U-M early for the NBA,” Harris said in a statement.

“I will always be a Michigan Wolverine at heart and bleed Maize and Blue forever,” the junior wing said in the statement.

The NBA draft is scheduled for June 24.
