2:45pm: University of Michigan wide receiver Devin Funchess has decided to forgo his senior season and enter the 2015 NFL draft, the school announced today in a press release.
“I would like to thank my family, coaches and teammates for their support,” said Funchess, who also thanked recently-fired Wolverines coach Brady Hoke in a statement. “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.”
A second-team All-Big Ten selection, Funchess grabbed a team-leading 62 passes for 733 receiving yards and four touchdowns during the 2014 season, his first full year as a wide receiver. The Michigan junior currently ranks as the 19th-best prospect in the 2015 class, according to ESPN.com, whose rankings place him fourth among wideouts.
