Michigan MLB McGrone, K Nordin declare for NFL draft
Michigan middle linebacker Cameron McGrone and kicker Quinn Nordin both announced Tuesday that they are entering the NFL draft.
McGrone had 26 tackles in five games this season before he sustained a season-ending leg injury against Rutgers on Nov. 21. He recorded 66 tackles and four sacks in 13 games in 2019 as a sophomore.
McGrone summed up his experience at Michigan in his announcement on Twitter.
“I am proud of my development and ready for my next challenge,” he said. “After discussions with my family and careful thought, consideration and prayer, I have made the decision to pursue my dream of playing in the NFL.”
Nordin was just 2 of 5 on field goals in four games this season. Overall, he made 42 of 58 for Michigan, topped by a 19-for-24 effort in 2017.
Nordin matched the school record with a 57-yard boot against Alabama in the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1, 2020. Hayden Epstein made a 57-yarder in 2001.
Shark Sports Management announced Nordin’s declaration with the kicker confirming it by saying “Time to go to work.”
