Denard Robinson Will Return For Senior Season

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson is set to return for his senior season.

The school announced Friday that Robinson and defensive back J.T. Floyd will be back. The two juniors had sought opinions from the NFL Draft Advisory Board to get a sense of where they might get selected if they decided to turn pro, but they were expected to return.

Robinson could be among the top candidates for the Heisman Trophy in 2012. He threw for 2,173 yards and ran for 1,176 in his first season under new coach Brady Hoke. Michigan beat Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.

Floyd intercepted two passes this past season.
