In a surprising turn of events, Michigan Wolverines safety Quinten Johnson has decided to put his NFL aspirations on hold. After initially declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft, Johnson has had a change of heart and will return for his sixth year with the Wolverines.

The Initial Decision from Quinten Johnson

A month ago, it seemed like Johnson was set on pursuing a professional career. Most players had already declared for the draft, and his departure from the program appeared imminent. However, football fans in Ann Arbor received a pleasant surprise when Johnson announced that he had signed a name, image, and likeness (NIL) deal with Randy Wise Automotive.

A Sixth Year in the Winged Helmet

The news was confirmed by multiple reports, including The Wolverine’s Clayton Sayfie. Johnson, who originally declared for the draft on February 2, had been exploring his options. His return adds depth and experience to Michigan’s secondary, which will be crucial as they prepare for the 2024 campaign.

How did Quinten Johnson’s decision Impact the Wolverines?

Johnson’s decision is significant for the Wolverines. While he didn’t burst onto the scene until last season, he made an impact with standout plays. His hit on Ohio State wide receiver Emeka Egbuka prevented a crucial catch and first down. Additionally, his hit on Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe forced a fumble, which was recovered by Michigan cornerback Josh Wallace.

A Trio of Safeties

With Johnson back in the fold, Michigan’s safety position looks solid. He joins Rod Moore and Makari Paige, forming a trio of established players. Keon Sabb, who opted to transfer to Alabama, will be missed, but Johnson’s return provides stability and leadership.

Spring Practices Ahead for Quinten Johnson and the Wolverines

The Wolverines kick off spring practices on March 18, and Johnson’s presence will be felt on the field. As Michigan aims to build on its recent success, having a seasoned safety like Johnson patrolling the secondary bodes well for their upcoming season.
