  The post-playoff exodus continues at Michigan, where a second edge rusher has signaled plans to transfer today. Defensive end Taylor Upshaw entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal on Tuesday, a team spokesman confirmed to MLive on Tuesday. Upshaw, who appeared in 36 games over five seasons, is a graduate student with a year of eligibility remaining. Upshaw has not yet announced the move, but it's not totally unexpected given his backup role in 2022. He has two career starts (none this year) and never seemed to crack a starting spot in Michigan's revamped defense the past two seasons.

This year, with Michigan going 13-1 and winning its second straight Big Ten title, the 6-foot-4, 255-pound Upshaw tallied 12 tackles (4 1/2 for a loss), two sacks and an interception as a backup edge rusher. His highlight of the season came Nov. 26 against Ohio State, when he notched his first career interception in the win over the Buckeyes. Upshaw follows fellow edge rusher Julius Welschof, who entered the portal earlier Tuesday. He is the eighth Michigan player total to enter the portal since the end of the regular season, allowing him the opportunity to get a jump-start on finding a new place to play in 2023. - Ann Arbor News

  The departures of Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo have left a hole in Michigan's defense. A huge one. The two defensive ends combined for 25 sacks, 28 1/2 tackles for loss and became a major problem for opposing quarterbacks. Hutchinson wound up being a Heisman Trophy finalist, while Ojabo emerged as an All-American and first-team all-Big Ten selection. Together, the two comprised the best edge-rushing duo in the country. But with both now gone, how will the Michigan defense go about replacing them? In spring, first-year coordinator Jesse Minter acknowledged the tough task ahead. He said it wouldn't be one or two players who make up the lost contribution. It's going to take multiple.

But who will they be? Taylor Upshaw and Mike Morris figure to be the front runners, along with Kris Jenkins, outside linebacker Jaylen Harrell and Braiden McGregor as a pass-rush specialist. Expect multiple players to see extensive playing time this fall, a departure from Hutchinson seeing the field on nearly every play of every game. Some players will specialize on first and second down (Morris, Upshaw), while others (Harrell, McGregor) could be brought in for third-and-long situations. It might be the biggest question mark facing Michigan this offseason, and one we really won't have an answer for until Week 1. - Ann Arbor News
