Michigan cornerback Jourdan Lewis is considered a possible first-round selection in the 2016 NFL draft.

Sounds like that might not happen.

Lewis, a junior with one year of college eligibility remaining, wrote on Twitter on Thursday: "I came to Michigan to get my education not to leave in three years."

College players who have completed their third seasons are eligible for the NFL draft.

Lewis (5-10, 176), who is from Detroit Cass Tech, has 14 pass breakups this season, with two interceptions, 2.5 tackles for loss and 24 total tackles.

He was named midseason All-American by Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports and he is one of 16 semifinalists for the Jim Thorpe Award, given annually to the top defensive back in college football.

Michigan ranks first in the nation in total defense (210.6 yards per game), first in scoring defense (9.3 points per game) and fourth in pass defense (145.9 yards).
