Michigan football: Jake Butt to return for senior season with the Wolverines

  Michigan tight end Jake Butt (88) will return to Ann Arbor for his senior season.

Michigan tight end Jake Butt announced on Twitter he will return for his senior in Ann Arbor, rather than declare for the NFL draft.

"My heart and soul is with Michigan, and I'm excited to return for my senior year and play for the most historic university and greatest coaches in college football." Butt said in his post.

Butt was named Big Ten tight end of the year after he caught 48 passes for 620 yards and three touchdowns in the 2015 season, including a pivotal overtime score against Indiana on Nov. 4 to force a second overtime. Michigan went on to beat Indiana in that game, finished the regular season 9-3 and will play Florida in the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1.
