Josaiah Stewart makes NFL draft decision

On Sunday, it felt like every Michigan football player who could depart via the NFL draft did, but not every player made their announcement as to their plans. With Champions Circle touting the ‘Those Who Stay’ fund, someone had to, well, stay, right?

Monday morning brought good news to the maize and blue as the defense got a little jolt. While Kris Jenkins and Jaylen Harrell moved onto the NFL, edge rusher Josaiah Stewart announced that he will be returning for his senior year, meaning there’s a full, returning contingent along the defensive line with the sophomore trio set to come back as juniors.

With Stewart’s return, he’ll partner with Derrick Moore, Mason Graham, Kenneth Grant, and Rayshaun Benny to continue dominance up front.

Stewart arrived in Ann Arbor last season after standing out for two years at Coastal Carolina.
