Devin Bush is heading to the NFL, he announced on Wednesday morning amid the Early Signing Day chaos. The Michigan linebacker will be forgoing his senior season to enter the 2019 NFL Draft and will not play in the Peach Bowl vs. Florida due to not being cleared from the injury he suffered in the Ohio State game.
He posted a statement via his Twitter account:
Bush was a four-star prospect and the 11th-ranked inside linebacker in the 2016 class coming out of high school, according to the 247 Composite rankings. He could have taken a different road and committed to play for his father’s alma mater in Florida State, but chose Michigan and turned himself into one of the top linebackers coming out of this class.
Some projections have him as high as a top-ten pick, but he has been anywhere from there to the top of the second round. With speed and quickness the name of the game at the next level, he should wind up fitting right into the pros.
