ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The rumors were true, Devin Bush will enter the NFL draft, foregoing his senior season at Michigan.
Bush announced his decision on Twitter and Instagram on Wednesday, the opening day of the early signing period.
The junior earned Associated Press All-America second team and Big Ten defensive player of the year honors this year. He also finished third in voting for the Butkus Award as the nation’s best linebacker.
Bush led the Wolverines with 79 tackles and ranked second on the team with nine tackles for losses and five sacks before his season ended with a hip injury against Ohio State. Bush says he hasn’t been cleared to practice or play for No. 8 Michigan against No. 10 Florida in the Peach Bowl, adding the injury pushed him to think hard about his future.
