Michigan’s Devin Bush Jr. declares for NFL draft, out for Peach Bowl

Detroit Free Press

Devin Bush Jr.'s Michigan football career has come to a close. 

The junior All-American linebacker announced his decision to declare for the 2019 NFL draft on Wednesday, and, as a result of a hip injury suffered in the regular-season finale at Ohio State, will not play for the Wolverines against Florida in the Peach Bowl. 

"Despite getting treatment every day, I have not been cleared to practice or play in the Peach Bowl due to the hip injury I suffered in the last game," Bush wrote on Twitter. "Due to this injury, I have thought hard about my future in football. Having been injured I realize how fleeting this sport can be. It has always been a dream of mine to follow in my father's footsteps and play in the NFL. 

"This injury has made me realize how important this goal is to me and my family. Therefore, I have decided to forgo my senior season and enter the 2019 NFL Draft."

Bush is the second Michigan junior to declare for the draft this season, joining teammate Rashan Gary. Gary will also sit out the Peach Bowl.
