I love GENERAL STUDIES!!!
All-American offensive tackle Taylor Lewan has surprised experts by announcing he will stay in college one more year. Lewan was expected to be a first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Lewan is 6’8″ and 309 pounds. He helped the Wolverine offensive line give up a conference low 15 sacks.
The redshirt junior explained his decision to remain a Wolverine one last year in an interview with the Associated Press.
“People don’t really understand why I wouldn’t leave for the NFL, but when I came to the University of Michigan, I didn’t understand the tradition of this place, either. Now, I do. In the NFL, you just come and go. But here at Michigan, it’s not like that. I love these guys – my teammates are my best friends – and I want to stay to win Big Ten championships.”
Lewan said his teammates were very surprised he decided to stay.
“The (NFL) advisory board came back and said that I’d be a high, first-round pick,” Lewan told AP. “At first, it was difficult to turn that down. But the most important thing to me is the University of Michigan and winning a Big Ten championship before I leave.”
I had the time of my life, and I owed it all to yoooouu. Nobody puts Shoelace in a corner.
