Devin Bush Jr. took home another award Wednesday.
Bush, also a first-team All-Big Ten linebacker and a finalist for both the Butkus and Nagurski awards this season, was also named the Big Ten’s linebacker of the year.
Bush had 80 tackles and five sacks for the Wolverines this season. The 5-foot-11, 233-pounder also had six pass breakups.
He’s currently projected as a first-round draft choice in the 2019 NFL draft. Bush has said he’d like to make his pro or college decision at some point in December or early January.
Michigan (10-2) plays in the Peach Bowl against Florida (9-3) on Dec. 29 in Atlanta. Bush has said he’d like to participate in the game.
He was one of seven Michigan first-team AP selections, joining offensive tackle Jon Runyan Jr., running back Karan Higdon, defensive end Chase Winovich, cornerback Lavert Hill, safety Josh Metellus and punter Will Hart.
Offensive guard Ben Bredeson, defensive end Rashan Gary and cornerback David Long were second-team selections.
