Former Michigan RB Tru Wilson transferring to FCS program
Former Michigan running back Tru Wilson has decided to continue his football career at the FCS level.
Over the weekend, Northern Colorado welcomed Wilson to the program as a graduate transfer running back. Wilson heads to the FCS level after spending the past four seasons at Michigan. He was a member of the Wolverines’ 2016 recruiting class and will have immediate eligibility with the Bears.
Wilson has one year of eligibility remaining.

Though Wilson has been in the mix for Michigan’s starting running back job recently, it appeared that Zach Charbonnet and Hassan Haskins would occupy the top two spots on the depth chart during the 2020 season. Transferring for his final season appeared to be a solid option for Wilson.
Last season, Wilson ranked third on the team in rushing with 221 yards and a touchdown on 41 carries. His most productive season came in 2018, when he racked up 364 yards and a score on 62 touches. He also had six receptions for 34 yards that year.
Northern Colorado finished the 2019 season with a 2-10 record.
