Senior defensive tackle Alex Ofili announced that he will forgo his final year of eligibility at Michigan to enter the NFL draft.

Ofili played in all 12 games for the Wolverines this season and made one start. His primary role was to back up junior defensive tackle Gabe Watson.

He had his best season at Michigan this year, registering 13 tackles and two sacks in limited action.

Ofili saw the field briefly in this year’s Rose Bowl against Texas and recorded one sack.

Ofili is an Ypsilanti native and went to Ypsilanti High School. He is the second Wolverine to leave school early for the NFL. Safety Ernest Shazor was the first.
