This is around the time where the floodgates open on college football players who have potential at the next level decide if they will leave prematurely for the NFL Draft or stay in school for one more year. There appears to be NFL talent up and down the roster for the Michigan Wolverines, virtually at every position.

Particularly on the defensive line, they were eight or sometimes nine deep, a rotation that head coach Jim Harbaugh authored very well to not only keep players fresh but also get quality production. Among those was senior Maurice Hurst, who announced on Wednesday that he will return for a fifth season in Ann Arbor come 2017.

Hurst was one of the five seniors on the defensive line for Michigan this year, one that ranked near the top in multiple categories this season. Hurst is also the only one of the five that is on scholarship and eligible for a fifth season. And he’s one of many seniors for Michigan that fall in that same boat of 5th-year eligibility.

The 6-foot-2, 282-pounds defensive tackle out of Westwood, Massachusetts is coming off a year where he totaled 30 tackles, a career-best 9.5 for loss, and also a career-best four sacks. Hurst immediately becomes the man next year to lead a relatively young but talented bunch featuring current juniors Chase Winovich and Bryan Mone, and former No. 1 prospect, freshman Rashan Gary.
