  Josh Uche believed he could have returned to Michigan for more one season. As it turns out, his coach was lobbying for it. Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown said this week on the "In the Trenches" podcast that he pushed Uche, a second-round pick of the New England Patriots in April, to return to college for a fifth year. "Selfishly, I tried to get him to come back because I thought he would be like Josh Allen from Kentucky," Brown told host Jon Jansen. "Just continuing being more veteran as an outside linebacker. But obviously, you can't argue when he's in the second round, for sure."

Allen was the seventh overall pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2019, thanks in part because of a Heisman Trophy caliber season in 2018 in which he was named the SEC's Defensive Player of the Year and won the national Bronko Nagurski Trophy. Uche, meanwhile, reached second-team all-Big Ten status in 2019 after really exploding onto the scene in 2018. The 6-foot-1, 245-pound linebacker only appeared in four games during his freshman year, 2016, a season he said in December was cut short by a meniscus injury. That injury potentially made him eligible to retroactively apply for a medical redshirt, granting him a fifth year and the ability to play for Michigan in 2020. "They were petitioning for it, and I think I would have gotten it," Uche told reporters in the lead up to the Citrus Bowl. "I think I did, but I didn't even follow up." - Ann Arbor News

  Michigan linebacker Josh Uche announced Wednesday night that he will enter this spring's NFL Draft and will play in the team's yet-to-be determined bowl game. Uche, a 6-foot-2, 250-pound strong-side linebacker, emerged as the team's top pass-rusher this season. Through 12 regular-season games, he tallied 34 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss and a team-high 8.5 sacks. He also had two pass breakups and two forced fumbles. Tuesday afternoon, he earned All-Big Ten honors, named to the third team by media and second team by coaches. Uche was one of the nation's most effective pass-rushers this season on a per-snap basis in terms of both pressure rate and pass-rush win percentage, according to Pro Football Focus. He saw his role expand significantly from last season, when he was primarily utilized on third downs - and still led the team with 7 sacks. - Detroit Free Press
