It’s decision time for numerous Michigan football players, and more than half of them look to be ready to leave.

Seven members of Michigan’s national championship team have accepted invitations to play in this year’s Senior Bowl, which will be heAccepting a Senior Bowl invite is non-binding. Players have until Monday, Jan. 15, to formally declare for the 2024 NFL Draft, leaving the door open for a few of these players to return.ld on Feb. 3 in Mobile, Ala., according to NFL

The complete list of Michigan players is as follows:

• AJ Barner, tight end

• LB Mr. Michael Barrett

• LaDarius Henderson, OL

• Trevor Keegan, OL

• EDGE Connor McGregor

• Mike Sainristil, DB

• Roman Wilson (WR)

Edge rusher Braiden McGregor is the group’s biggest surprise. McGregor, a senior with one more year of eligibility, told MLive before of Monday’s College Football Playoff final that he was still assessing his choices and that Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) monies will be considered. Despite this, the Port Huron, Michigan native had a solid season, recording 4 1/2 sacks and nine tackles for loss, including a pair of sacks versus Alabama in the Rose Bowl.


Another notable decision came from Roman Wilson, Michigan’s leading receiver in 2023. The second-team all-Big Ten wideout caught 48 passes for 789 yards and 12 touchdowns, including a four-catch, 73-yard game against the elite Crimson Tide secondary.

Tight end AJ Barner appears ready to test the NFL market, too, despite having a year of eligibility remaining as well. A transfer from Indiana, Barner came in and became an immediate fit to the Wolverines’ offense as a versatile tight end, catching 22 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown.

Trevor Keegan, a three-time all-Big Ten guard, technically had another year of eligibility left — but was considered a near-lock to depart after weighing the NFL last offseason.

Meanwhile, linebacker Michael Barrett, offensive lineman LaDarius Henderson and defensive back Mike Sainristil were all out of college eligibility. Barrett played six seasons at Michigan and was a third-team all-Big Ten linebacker, while Sainristil — a former receiver — blossomed into the backbone of the Wolverines’ lockdown secondary. Head coach Jim Harbaugh has spoken glowingly about Sainristil’s pro prospects, and a strong showing in Mobile could seal the deal with scouts.
