Tight end Zach Gentry has decided to forego his final year at Michigan and will enter the NFL Draft, he announced Wednesday on Instagram.
The 6-foot-8 Gentry, a third-team All-Big Ten selection, arrived at Michigan as a quarterback but was moved to tight end.
He finished this season with 32 receptions and 514 yards.
Last week before the Peach Bowl, Gentry said he received a grade from the NFL and seemed comfortable with the projection, although he wouldn’t share the information.
“It was a good area for me, I think, but you never know,” Gentry said in Atlanta. “We’ll see. It’s a big thing, but I’m not really worried about it or concerned about it until after the game.”
He is the fourth Michigan player to leave early joining cornerback David Long, defensive end Rashan Gary and linebacker Devin Bush.
