Shibley is credited with 24 career tackles during his time in Ann Arbor, with all but one coming during the 2020 season. He had 17 solo stops and 3 tackles for loss as the Wolverines concluded the year with a 2-4 record.
Four days ago, VanSumeren also entered his name into the portal.
VanSumeren started his career as a running back at Michigan before shifting to linebacker. n 2019, he carried the ball nine times for 20 yards and scored a touchdown in the season opener against Middle Tennessee State. He recorded eight total tackles as a linebacker in 2020.
Last week, Michigan also lost a commitment from 4-star defensive tackle Alex VanSumeren from the 2022 class. He is ranked as one of the Top 250 prospects in the class.
