  01/22/21 - Dylan McCaffreyrJr/2022, Michigan, 6-4, 220 (DS#35 QB) + More +

  It took a while, but Dylan McCaffrey has finally signaled his planned departure. The Michigan quarterback entered his name into the NCAA's transfer portal on Thursday, a Michigan spokesman confirmed to MLive, likely bringing an end to his career in Ann Arbor. McCaffrey opted out of playing the 2020 season back in September, and planned to transfer then, MLive reported at the time. He figured to be part of the competition for Michigan's starting quarterback role, eventually won by Joe Milton. A senior, McCaffrey will have two years of eligibility remaining. He appeared in 13 games during his Michigan career, completing 18 of his 35 pass attempts for 242 yards and three touchdowns, but was plagued by injury. - Ann Arbor News

  01/21/21 - Nick EubanksrSr/2021, Michigan, 6-4, 256 (DS#9 TE) + More +

  Michigan tight end Nick Eubanks confirmed the expected - he's heading to the NFL Draft. Eubanks made the announcement Wednesday on Instagram a day after running back Chris Evans made it official that he's also leaving for the NFL. Eubanks was a co-captain last season. The 6-foot-5, 256-pound Eubanks played in five games this season, making 10 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown. He has 45 catches for 578 yards (12.8 yards) and six touchdowns in his career with the Wolverines. - Detroit News

  01/21/21 - Chris EvansrSr/2021, Michigan, 5-10, 216 (DS#29 RB) + More +

  Michigan running back Chris Evans officially announced Tuesday he is entering the NFL Draft. Evans already had accepted a spot in the Senior Bowl later this month, so this move was not unexpected. Evans rushed for 1,795 yards and 15 touchdowns during his career that paused for a year while he sat out because of a university suspension over an academic issue. Evans was set to become the lead back in 2019 but instead worked three jobs that year and remained in Ann Arbor. He rejoined the team in 2020 and had 16 carries for 73 yards and a touchdown during the abbreviated season. - Detroit News

  01/20/21 - Luiji VilainrJr/2022, Michigan, 6-3, 253 (DS#32 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

  01/19/21 - Zach CharbonnetSo/2023, Michigan, 6-0, 220 (DS#10 RB) + More +

  One of Michigan's most productive running backs the last two seasons is exploring a transfer. Zach Charbonnet, a former four-star recruit who amassed 850 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns in two seasons, has entered his name into the NCAA's transfer portal, a Michigan spokesman confirmed on Monday. Just because Charbonnet entered the portal doesn't necessarily mean he will transfer, but the move allows coaches from other schools to recruit the 6-foot-1, 220-pound back. Charbonnet has been part of a crowded backfield since arriving in Ann Arbor, sharing carries each of the last two seasons. As a true freshman in 2019, Charbonnet rushed for a team-high 726 yards and 11 touchdowns despite lingering injury, but nearly split reps with redshirt freshman Hassan Haskins. - Ann Arbor News

  01/15/21 - Blake CorumFr/2024, Michigan, 5-07, 200 (DS#4 RB) + More +

  Mike Hart, the all-time leading rusher at Michigan and infamously known for inflaming the in-state rivalry with Michigan State, is returning to Ann Arbor. Hart, 34, was named the program's new running backs coach on Wednesday, leaving his post as associate head coach and running backs coach at Indiana, in an announcement from head coach Jim Harbaugh. The addition of Hart comes after two recent departures from the Michigan coaching staff. The status of Jay Harbaugh, who's coached the Wolverines' running backs since 2017, remains unclear after his contract expired on Monday. - Ann Arbor News

  Michigan quarterback Joe Milton struggled late in the season with a thumb issue and is seen wearing a cast on his right hand in a recent Instagram post. Milton, who started five games as Michigan's quarterback last fall, had offseason surgery, according to a source close to the program. It is unclear when the surgery took place. The video posted on Instagram shows Milton playing with his dog and a cast protecting his hand and thumb. In the Week 3 game at Indiana, Milton was seen wearing a protective wrap on the hand and thumb and in every subsequent game. - Detroit News

He was All-Big Ten honorable mention in 2019. - Detroit News

  12/28/20 - Aidan HutchinsonJr/2022, Michigan, 6-5, 269 (DS#1 DE) + More +

  Michigan got a bit of good news on the defensive side of the ball this week, with defensive end Aidan Hutchinson announcing plans to return in 2021. In a social media post Monday evening, Hutchinson wrote on Twitter that he's "not quite done yet" and will not declare for the NFL draft, like some analysts projected he would earlier this year. Hutchinson wasn't originally on the four-year plan. He came in and played in all 13 games as a true freshman in 2018, then moved into a starting role as a sophomore in 2019, earning third-team all-Big Ten honors from the coaches while racking up 68 tackles (10 for a loss) and 4 1/2 sacks. Leveraging his athletic frame, Hutchinson added six pass deflections and two forced fumbles. - Michigan Live

Jackson was an honorable mention on both ballots in 2019. - Michigan Football
