RJ Moten, former Michigan DB, announces SEC transfer destination
RJ Moten had a strong showing for Michigan’s defense across the past two seasons with Jim Harbaugh’s program capturing back-to-back B1G titles. Unfortunately, he hit the transfer portal coming out of the spring and is now moving on.
According to a report from Zach Abolverdi with On3 Sports, Moten has committed to Billy Napier’s Florida program. Moten’s father also previously played for the Gators.

Moten played all 14 games for Michigan’s Big Ten championship team and College Football Playoff appearance against TCU with 10 starts as a safety. He had 15 career starts and 29 total appearances across the 2021-22 seasons for the Wolverines.
For his career in Ann Arbor, the former 4-star prospect in the 2020 recruiting class posted 66 tackles, 2.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 2 interceptions and 4 pass breakups. Best of luck to Moten as he continues his career in the SEC East.
