Michigan University football star Jabrill Peppers says he hasn't made up his mind about turning pro, despite a report claiming the opposite.

Peppers took to Twitter Tuesday, refuting a Forbes report claiming he had hired an agent and will enter the NFL Draft.

"Funny how I haven't made any decisions on my future. This is a complete false report."

"This is going to be one of the hardest decisions in my life. If you haven't heard anything from the UofM or myself, it's FALSE. Thank You"

Peppers would have two years of eligibility remaining, if he decided to return to Michigan.

Peppers was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2016, finishing fifth in voting. He was also named the Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Year.

Peppers sat out the Orange Bowl with a hamstring injury.
