Michigan Wolverines junior defensive back David Long is still undecided on his potential future. Long will play in the team’s upcoming Peach Bowl before making his decision.

“I’m just worried about getting the game out of the way, and then [I’ll] delve into that stuff,” Long said.

The No. 7 Wolverines face the No. 10 Florida Gators in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, December 29th. The game will kick off at noon EST.

He is expected to be a Top 10 corner in the draft in case he does decide to declare for the 2019 Draft. According to Pro Football Focus, he allowed 36.9 passer rating when he was targeted.

That was the lowest of all the corners in the Big Ten Conference.

Michigan has already lost two players to the Draft. Inside Linebacker Devin Bush Jr. and Defensive End Rashan Gary have already declared.

Also, teammate Lavert Hill may also join Bush and Gary in the pursuit of an NFL dream. Hill, like Long, is also undecided on his future, as well.

This season, Long has had 15 tackles, an interception, and six pass deflections in 12 games. In his two-year career with the Wolverines, he had 35 tackles, including 2.0 tackles for a loss, three interceptions, and 12 pass deflections.
