With Ben Gedeon set to depart due to graduation, McCray, who started all 12 games this year alongside Gedeon, should be in for another big season.
Mo Hurst is also expected to return next season for the Wolverines:
Jim Harbaugh is advising people to text and tweet Maurice Hurst and "Encourage him to come back."
