Illinois QB Jeff George, Jr. plans to transfer to Big Ten program
It appears Michigan is about to add another big name to the program’s quarterback room as former Illinois QB Jeff George, Jr. is attempting to land in Ann Arbor.
George, the son of former NFL quarterback Jeff George, announced his plans to leave Illinois as a graduate transfer back in January. He recently tweeted out a Michigan logo with “Go Blue!!!” as his caption. According to Michigan’s Rival site The Wolverine, George will play for Jim Harbaugh if he gets accepted into the graduate program at the school.
In two seasons of play, George has thrown for 1,743 yards, 11 touchdowns and 15 interceptions for Illinois.
Here is the pro-Michigan tweet he sent out recently:
