The 59-point win was the second largest in school history. Although Wilson appeared in 26 games for the 2015–16 Wolverines, he only played as many as 10 minutes 5 times. Nevertheless, he finished second on the team in blocked shots with 10, including two in a January 12, 2016 upset of (#3/#3) Maryland. It was Michigan’s first win over a top-three nationally ranked opponent at Crisler Center since the 1997–98 team defeated No. 3 Duke, 81–73, on December 13, 1997.

2016–17 season

In the January 1, Big Ten meeting opener against Iowa, Wilson posted a profession high 28 points and 14 bounce back in a 83–86 overtime misfortune. On February 19, Wilson posted a group high 16 points, including a game-tying three point field objective, in extra time 78–83 misfortune to Minnesota.

Michigan was driven by Wilson with 8 bounce back, 3 blocked shots and a game-high 26 points. This was the second most noteworthy single-game scoring execution of the competition (trailing teammate Derrick Walton’s 29-point execution the accompanying day).

D.J. Wilson arrived at the midpoint of 15.3 focuses per game for Michigan’s four recreations amid the Big Ten Tournament, helping the 2016–17 Wolverines emerge as the champion. Wilson found the middle value of 16 points, 3 squares and 4.3 bounce back in three 2017 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament games, helping Michigan come to the round of sixteen, where the group was killed by Ennis’ 2016–17 Oregon Ducks.

Following the 2017 NCAA Tournament, he began to appear in various mock draft projections for the 2017 NBA draft. On April 4, 2017, Sports Illustrated projected him as a first-round selection, and ESPN analyst Eamonn Brennan stated that his awaited decision to enter the draft “seems like a foregone conclusion”. The local press that covers Michigan, made little mention of the possibility of Wilson departing, however, according to SB Nation’s Anthony Broome.

At the time, some early pollsters included the 2017–18 Wolverines among the expected preseason top 25 teams, while several pollsters omitted the team from their rankings projections. On April 10, both Wilson and teammate Moe Wagner declared for the draft, but did not hire agents, which gave them until May 24 to withdraw their names and retain their athletic eligibility to return to Michigan.

Declaring early allowed him to seek advice from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee by the April 14 application deadline, participate in workouts with NBA teams beginning April 25 and this made him eligible for an invitation to the May 9 — 14 NBA Draft Combine. 57 of the 78 players who declared for the 2016 NBA draft without hiring an agent withdrew their names. On April 30, 2017, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reported that he was invited to the NBA Draft Combine.

During the week prior to the NBA Combine, Wilson injured his quadriceps during a workout with the San Antonio Spurs, relegating him to taking part in physical measurements and interviews. Analysts were skeptical about Wilson’s readiness for the 2017 draft.

Wilson stated during combine interviews that he would not remain in the draft unless he was assured of being a first-rounder. Also, he was projected as a late first-round selection by sources such as ESPN and DraftExpress.
