Michigan Football is losing another big piece.
Offensive lineman Cesar Ruiz, a former four-star recruit and the class of 2017’s top-ranked center, has officially declared for the NFL Draft:

Last week, Ruiz didn’t want to discuss the possibility of him leaving, as the upcoming Citrus Bowl matchup against Alabama was at the front of his mind.
“That’s not really important to me right now,” Ruiz noted. “We’re focused on winning this game, and after this game, me and my family will talk to coach and we’ll make a decision from there. But right now we’re worried about this game and we’re worried about beating Alabama.”
With his absence, the Wolverines will have to replace four starters along the offensive line.
