Edwards to Return for Senior Campaign

Michigan wide receiver <b>Braylon Edwards</b> had until January 15 to decide whether or not he would return for his senior season. Sunday night he made that decision and will once again don the No. 1 jersey for the Wolverines this fall.

"I've decided to stay," Braylon Edwards said in the Detroit News. "It was real close."

Edwards is the third Wolverine to announce that he will return rather than go pro. Earlier offensive tackle David Baas and defensive back Marlin Jackson chose to return for their final year at Michigan.

Edwards had 85 catches for 1,138 yards (an 87.5 average) and 14 touchdowns last season for the 10-3 Wolverines.

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper projected Edwards a late first-round, early second-round prospect if he were to enter the April draft. "Edwards will be one of the most coveted receivers in the nation if he returns for his senior year and works on his attention to detail," Kiper wrote recently for ESPN.

GoBlueWolverine Magazine will have more from Edwards later.
