Michigan junior receiver Devin Funchess will enter the NFL draft.
“I would like to thank my family, coaches and teammates for their support,” Funchess said in a released statement from U-M. “It’s always been a dream of mine to play in the NFL, and I am prepared to take the next step in my journey.
“I want to personally thank coach (Brady) Hoke and his staff. I’ve learned life and character lessons from them, and they have helped me become a better person and man. I love Michigan. From the former players to the fans, it’s a special place. The opportunity to play in the Big House in front of 100,000 strong each week, those are memories that will last with me forever. It’s been an honor to strap on the winged helmet for three years with my teammates, and I will always bleed Maize and Blue.”
