Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight has announced that he will be leaving the program and plans to transfer for his final season of eligibility. He made a statement on Instagram Sunday night.

In his statement, Speight thanked his teammates, coaches and fans for the support during his time in Ann Arbor. Here are a few excerpts from Speight’s Instagram account.

Thank you, Michigan. These past 4 years have been nothing short of spectacular. Enrolling in January of 2014 as a kid from Virginia i didn’t know what to expect. Four years later i leave a Michigan Man. The amazing memories with my teammates, playing under the best coaches in America, and enjoying everything that this wonderful university and town have to offer. what a ride.

I don’t know where next will be, and I’ll use these next four weeks to figure that out. i’m excited to keep pursuing my dreams in a new jersey, but will forever root for the boys wearing the winged helmet. Go blue!

Speight was Michigan’s starting quarterback in 2016 and the first four games of 2017 before suffering a severe back injury against Purdue that kept him sidelined for the remainder of the 2017 season. Quarterbacks John O’Korn and Brandon Peters filled in under center during Speight’s absence.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh said that there was a possibility that Speight might return from the injury at some point in the season, but he never returned to the field for the Wolverines.

In 2016, Speight completed 61.6 percent of his passes while throwing for 2,538 yards, 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions as Michigan finished 10-3. In four games this year, Speight completed 44-of-81 passes for 581 yards, three touchdowns and a pair of interceptions.

No potential landing spots were named.
