Michigan is taking a hit along the defensive line. Redshirt junior Michael Dwumfour has one year of eligibility left, but he will be using it somewhere other than Michigan.
Tuesday evening, Dwumfour tweeted out that he is planning to graduate transfer from Michigan, thanking several people with a note on Twitter. He’s become the sixth player since the 2019 season ended to enter the NCAA transfer portal.
“My time here at Michigan has come to an end,” Dwumfour wrote. “These past four years has been some of the best time of my life. I’ve learned and mature so much here. I’ve built relationships with people that will last a lifetime. I would like to thank Coach Harbaugh, Coach Brown, Coach Nua, Coach Herb and staff and the athletic training staff for all they’ve done for me. With that being said I have entered the portal and will be a grad transfer.”

Dwumfour, a New Jersey native, played in 10 games for the Wolverines this season, making nine tackles and breaking up two passes. In his four years at Michigan, the defensive tackle appeared in 34 career games and piled up 36 tackles and 7.5 stops for loss.
It was unclear where Dwumfour would have interest in transferring, but an experienced defensive tackle would be a great fit for several programs. As a graduate transfer, he’ll be immediately eligible for the 2020 season.
