Denard on video-game cover
Denard Robinson will wear the maize-and-blue for one more year.
No, not at the Big House, but on the cover of video games around the world.
EA Sports announced Tuesday morning that Robinson had beaten out Texas A&M receiver Ryan Swope in the final round of voting for the NCAA Football 14 cover. Robinson joins fellow Wolverines Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson to have earned the honor.
Moments after the announcement, Robinson took to Twitter to thank his fans.
“It’s my goal to make somebody’s day every day, but today the Michigan fan base and family made my day,” he tweeted. “It’s a blessing. Thank you all! Love!”
Howard, Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon and the Wolverines basketball team were all quick to congratulate Robinson.
“Congrats twin. #GoBlue,” tweeted Howard.
Despite an injury-plagued senior season, Robinson finished as the NCAA career leader in rushing yards by a quarterback, and ended up atop Michigan’s career lists in both touchdowns and total yardage.
Robinson is projected as a wide receiver and kick returner in the NFL, but is expected to throw for scouts at Michigan’s Pro Day this weekend.
