After redshirting his senior season at Michigan to gain a fifth year of eligibility, guard Andrew Dakich has decided to spend his final college season at Quinnipiac.
ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reported Friday that Dakich will join new Quinnipiac coach Baker Dunleavy at the Hamden, Conn., campus.

Dakich was a walk-on for most of his career at Michigan but earned a scholarship for the second semester last season in a very memorable way.

Dakich appeared in 49 games at Michigan, scoring a total of 22 points.
In both his sophomore and junior seasons, Dakich asked to redshirt so he could have a graduate transfer year, but both times he lost his redshirt after a series of injuries to his teammates. Finally, as a senior, he managed to sit out the entire season.
Quinnipiac went 10-21 during the 2016-17 season.
