By  | 

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan defensive lineman Chase Winovich is forgoing the NFL and staying with the Wolverines.

Winovich announced the decision on social media Wednesday.

Winovich was a second-team All-Big Ten pick by the AP this season, along with teammate and fellow defensive lineman Rashan Gary.

Those two should give the Wolverines a formidable defensive front in 2018 as Michigan tries to bounce back from an 8-5 season .

Winovich had eight sacks this season and has 13 over the past two.
