Michigan sophomore wing Ibi Watson took to Twitter on Thursday night to announce he will transfer from the program:
During my time at the University Michigan I have learned and experienced so much. I enjoyed the relationships and memories that I made. Thank you to the coaching staff and my teammates for making my experience so great! After much thought, I have decided to explore other options. pic.twitter.com/tlCQrqQKek

The sophomore was a name that was expected to explore the option to transfer.
Watson played only 5.2 minutes per game, and with Michigan’s loaded 2018 recruiting class, there didn’t seem to be much room to grow for the former 3-star from Pickerington, Ohio.
In his two seasons, Watson averaged 1.8 PPG in 45 total games.
If, and that’s a big if, Moe Wagner decides to come back to play for the Wolverines, this move would keep Michigan inside their scholarship allotment.
