Jourdan Lewis Addresses Turning Pro On Twitter

    Jourdan Lewis has been a revelation for the Michigan Wolverines, but the idea of turning pro early is something he had to speak up about on Twitter.

    October 29, 2015

    The revival of Michigan Wolverines football has been put on the fast track by Jim Harbaugh in his first season as the head coach of his alma mater.

    And, yes, Harbaugh is the person that has turned every Wolverines fan into fanboys and fangirls, but Michigan does have some pretty talented players on its roster, too.

    Many of those players can be found on the Wolverines defense, which has allowed an average of just 65 rushing yards and 145.6 passing yards through seven games.

    Aside from a rough opening game in which Utah scored 24 points and a classic rivalry with Michigan State that saw the Spartans put up 27 points, the Wolverines have defended the end zone like a team possessed. Michigan has allowed just 14 points in the other five games its played — one touchdown apiece between Oregon State and UNLV.

    A cornerstone of that solid defense has been cornerback Jourdan Lewis. Lewis has been a lockdown corner and playmaker for Harbaugh, with two interceptions and 24 tackles. His season thus far has landed Lewis a spot as a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award.

    But with great play comes the talk of turning pro, but Lewis shot the idea of entering the 2016 NFL Draft down on Twitter Wednesday morning.

    With Lewis in the secondary, there’s no telling just how far Michigan’s defense can take the team.
