Michigan All-American offensive lineman Taylor Lewan announced on Wednesday that he will return to Michigan next season rather than enter the NFL Draft.
Lewan was ranked as the No. 2 offensive tackle prospect by NFLDraftScout.com, and the No. 8 NFL prospect overall.
"There was really no doubt in my mind that I had to be back at The University of Michigan," said Lewan, according to CollegeFootballTalk.com. "I always said I would evaluate things and make the best decision for me, and that's exactly what I did."
Lewan said he talked with former Michigan All-American Jake Long, who remained in college for his senior season, was selected No. 1 overall in the 2008 NFL draft.
