Ojemudia, who tore his Achilles on October 3rd against the University of Maryland, took to Instagram last night to announce his intentions. Since his injury happened in the fifth game of the season, it was too late in the year for him to get a medical redshirt. Ojemudia did confirm that Michigan was researching the possibility of getting a medical redshirt, but this seems to end the possibility of that redshirt happening.

In approximately 4.5 games this season, Ojemudia had 19 tackles – six of which were for loss – and two sacks. He played the “buck” position in DJ Durkin‘s defense, which is a hybrid linebacker/defensive end. For his career, he recorded 47 tackles, 17.5 for loss, and eight sacks.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh has gone on record saying that Ojemudia has NFL potential.

“It’s not life or death (but) your lifestyle depends on it, your lifestyle’s at stake here,” Harbaugh said on his radio show. “Do you want to be a pro football player? Because you can come back even better. You can come back stronger, faster, even smarter, better than you were before you had that injury.”

Though it is popularly believed that Ojemudia will be selected in the 2016 draft, it will be interesting to see how he progresses in his recovery from the torn Achilles. Right now, no mock drafts have him being taken in the first three rounds.
