Michigan QB transferring less than 3 months after arrival
Jeff George Jr. arrived in Ann Arbor in June, but the quarterback has already decided to move on and will be transferring from Michigan, according to a report.
Friday night, The Wolverine Lounge reported that George, who had initially transferred out of Illinois and landed at Michigan, would transfer from the program. The report comes just one week before the Wolverines travel to South Bend to take on Notre Dame in the season opener.
According to the report from The Wolverine Lounge, George intends to transfer to Pitt.

George’s decision to transfer to Michigan was a peculiar one, as he joined a crowded quarterback room with Ole Miss transfer Shea Patterson and former 4-star prospects Joe Milton, Brandon Peters and Dylan McCaffrey. He arrived in Ann Arbor in June.
George is the son of former NFL quarterback Jeff George.
While at Illinois, George appeared in 12 games and served as a starter periodically throughout the last two seasons. Last year, he threw for 1,273 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
