Heading into the 2022 season, many believed that Erick All would be the top tight end for the Michigan Football team. But when All went down with an injury, it was Luke Schoonmaker who was asked to rise to the occasion, and that is exactly what he did. On an offense that had a plethora of weapons, Schoonmaker chipped in with 35 receptions for 418 yards and three touchdowns in 12 games with the Wolverines. Now, Schoonmaker has reportedly made his decision for 2023.
What decision did Michigan TE Luke Schoonmaker make?
On Monday, Schoonmaker announced that he has decided to forgo his final year of eligibility with the Wolverines and that he will be declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft.
“Coach [Jim] Harbaugh and a lot of the offensive coaches have given me the confidence that I'm ready for the next level, and I've developed into a complete tight end,” Schoonmaker told ESPN. “I'm at that point where I can now begin the process for the next level. With that guidance and the guidance of others, it's that time.”
With Schoonmaker out of the picture, Colston Loveland will likely be the top tight end for the Wolverines in 2023. During his freshman season, Loveland caught 16 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns.
Nation, do you think Schoonmaker is making the correct decision, or should he have returned for one more season?
