Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson: 'Oh yeah, I expect to be back'
NEW ORLEANS -- Michigan junior quarterback Denard Robinson has filed paperwork to the NFL Draft advisory board, but he made one thing very clear Friday morning.
He expects to return for his senior season.
"Oh yeah, I expect to be back," Robinson said. "That's it."
Robinson spoke to the media at a New Orleans hotel in advance of the Sugar Bowl, where the Wolverines (10-2) will face Virginia Tech (11-2) at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday on ESPN.
It was Robinson's first time speaking publicly since Michigan coach Brady Hoke announced the star quarterback is gauging his NFL draft stock. It is a common process for elite juniors and is non-binding, which means he can return to school if he wishes.
At this point, that still appears to be the case, although Robinson said he has not yet heard back from the committee.
"It was a decision that I was just like, I put my name out there (to) see what happens," Robinson said. "And whatever happens, happens."
