Heading into the 2020 Big Ten season, the hope for Michigan and their faithful fans was that WR Nico Collins would withdraw from the 2021 NFL Draft and come back for his final season with the Wolverines.
On Monday, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh met with the media and when he was asked about the status of Collins, he said he is not currently on the team.
“Nico is not participating in football right now and don’t have a crystal ball if his mind would change or not, but he’s not currently on the team,” Harbaugh told reporters.

In 2019, Collins caught 37 passes for 729 yards and 7 touchdowns and though he was second on the team in both yards and receptions, he was definitely their biggest threat.
Collins could still change his mind but it seems like time is running out.
