Castleberry is a native of Lakewood, Ohio and spent one season in Ann Arbor before deciding to leave. The 5-foot-8, 185-pound back had three FCS offers as a high school recruit, receiving interest from Morgan State, Morehead State and Georgetown. He then chose to walk on at Michigan.
Castleberry did not appear in any games for the Wolverines in 2019. He will have four years of eligibility remaining, unless he’s forced to sit out a season due to NCAA transfer rules. He would then have three years left.
