ACC country: Ex-Michigan RB finds new home at Wake Forest
Former Michigan running back Christian Turner has found a home with a new Power 5 program.
On Monday, Turner announced via Twitter that he has committed to Wake Forest. His decision comes after he entered the NCAA transfer portal to explore opportunities outside of Ann Arbor.

Turner initially opted out of playing the 2020 season but decided to return to the roster when the B1G reinstated the season. He did not get a carry during the year and promptly entered the transfer portal once the season had been completed.
Michigan finished 2-4.
Turner spent three seasons at Michigan. In 2019, he rushed for 171 yards and a touchdown on 44 carries and caught 4 passes for 13 yards. As a freshman in 2018, the running back totaled 95 yards on 20 carries and had a reception for 16 yards.
Because the NCAA is granting a blanket waiver for all fall student-athletes for the 2020 season, Turner will still have two years of eligibility remaining at Wake Forest.
