“I think my Dad predicted me to leave too,” Lewan said.

At first, Lewan consulted with others and just wanted an answer. It is a big decision, he explained, for a 21-year old. Ultimately, he decided that the chance for one more year at Michigan, one more shot at a Big Ten Championship, was worth it.

“If you play at the University of Michigan, whether it’s basketball, hockey, football, there’s a tradition here and there’s something that you want to be a part of,” Lewan said. “And if I do what I need to do, I’ll be able to play in the NFL for however long, but you only get one more year of college.”
