Redshirt freshman linebacker Drew Singleton announced Wednesday that he plans to transfer away from Michigan.
The news was first reported by 247Sports and later confirmed by the team.
Singleton came into the program as a heavily-recruited four-star prospect out of Paramus Catholic High School in New Jersey. He was the 79th overall recruit in 2017 and 5th ranked outside linebacker and was expected to be a key contributor for the Wolverines.
Things began to go south when he tore his ACL senior year of high school and was forced to redshirt last season.
This season, was expected to be different, though, with Singleton seemingly fully healthy coming into the season. However, as the season progressed, he found himself buried in the depth chart behind a a deep linebacker corps that includes Khaleke Hudson, Devin Bush, Devin Gil, and Josh Ross.
Singleton is now free to be recruited by other schools who wish to secure his transfer but he will have to sit out next season if he goes to another Division I ?program.
