As if Devin Bush needed more accolades than being a Top 10 draft pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the University of Michigan did just that when Bush was chosen as the Michigan 2019 Athlete of the Year.

Check out this video the university released in honor of Bush’s time wearing blue and gold.

Bush finished his final season at Michigan with 66 tackles, 4.5 sacks and four pass breakups. The Steelers then traded with the Denver Broncos, to move up 10 spots to No. 10 overall to select the true junior.

In three years at Michigan, Bush tallied 194 tackles, 10 sacks, one interception and 17 pass breakups. He was a two-time All-Big Ten first team selection (2017-18) on the field, and if you wondered about his intelligence, he twice earned Academic All-Big Ten honors in the classroom.

Congratulations indeed to Bush for his achievements while at Michigan, but, as I’m sure he would attest, his attention is on helping the Pittsburgh Steelers get back to winning Super Bowls, not where played college football.
