Though Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson approached the NFL advisory board regarding his draft status early in December, he's adamant that he's going to remain at Michigan for another season. Robinson said that it was just a feeling-out process, maybe to get a better idea of his future than to commit to leaving. It's unclear what exactly Robinson heard, but either way, he said that he "expects to be back, and that's it."

Robinson has been very productive this year, though his rushing and passing numbers are actually down. Still, the Wolverines have won three more games than last season, getting to double digits with 10, and he does have more combined touchdowns this time around. As a dual-threat quarterback who really is starting to hone in his passing game, another year of seasoning and potentially adapting to even more throwing could certainly serve him well.

He also said that it was simply a way to get his name out there, according to the Detroit Free Press:

"It was a decision where I was like, I'll put my name out there and see what happens. I thought it was a good idea, so I did it."
