  01/20/21 - Luiji VilainrSr/2022, Wake Forest, 6-3, 253 (DS#47 DE) + More +

  A second Michigan football player has made public his plans to transfer. Luiji Vilain, an underutilized and often injured member of the Wolverines' defensive line rotation, has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, a team spokesman confirmed to MLive on Tuesday. The spokesman, Dave Ablauf, says Vilain enters as a graduate student. That would allow the 6-foot-4, 253-pound Vilain to play immediately in 2021, with two years of eligibility left. Vilain has not commented on the move, but it allows coaches from other schools to openly recruit him. The Ottawa, Ontario, native has been on the Michigan football team since 2017. After taking a redshirt his freshman season, Vilain suffered a season-ending knee injury that left him sidelined in 2018 and limited in 2019, when he appeared in seven games at defensive end but only had seven tackles (one for a loss) and sack to show for it. - Ann Arbor News
