Great news for the former Michigan defensive lineman

It’s been about three weeks since former Michigan Wolverine Maurice Hurst was diagnosed with a heart condition at the NFL Combine. His future was in question, but now it looks like those questions have been answered.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting Hurst was medically cleared by cardiologists at both U-M and Harvard. Schefter also mentioned Hurst will participate in a full workout tomorrow during Michigan’s pro day.

This is fantastic news for the potential first-round draft choice. Hurst is highly considered as one of the best interior defensive lineman in this year’s draft class, so hopefully this news is able to keep him high on team’s draft boards.

Hurst was able to get in the first-round pick conversation by having a consensus All-American final season at Michigan, where he totaled 59 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, and 5 sacks.

Hurst is one of the great guys in the sport, so I am extremely excited we will be able to see him continue to play football and live out his dream. Good luck, Mo!
