Michigan QB Shane Morris announces he'll transfer
Shane Morris stuck it out at Michigan.
When the Wolverines brought in graduate transfer Jake Rudock, he held a clipboard when he could’ve left. When Morris wasn’t one of the final two quarterbacks battling for the job in 2016, he held a clipboard when he could’ve left.
But now, Morris is done holding a clipboard in Ann Arbor.
The former four-star recruit announced that he’ll leave Michigan in hopes of becoming a starter as a graduate transfer.
Here was the message Morris released via Twitter:
Morris will have a chance to play immediately as a graduate transfer. It remains to be seen what schools he’d be interested in.
The former top recruit in the state of Michigan in 2013, Morris never got a chance to hold on to the starting quarterback job. He played the most as a sophomore when he appeared in five games and threw for 128 yards.
The southpaw redshirted in 2015, and appeared in three games in 2016.
Morris will have a chance to potentially provide a veteran presence to a program in need of a one-year starter in 2017.
