Michigan freshman Ahmir Mitchell transferring after suspension.

Ahmir Mitchell enrolled at Michigan early, but it doesn't look like he's ever going to play a down for the Wolverines. Wednesday, just days after it was announced by head coach Jim Harbaugh that the freshman wide receiver would be suspended indefinitely, Mitchell announced on Twitter that he'd be leaving the program.

"It's been all love from the fans, community, and the people of Michigan. I've made bonds and friendships with people here that will last a lifetime. I love what U of M had to offer me but, what is best for me and my family comes first. Therefore I will like to announce that I am hereby reopening my recruitment to all Universities and football programs."

Mitchell specifically stated that he's "reopening' his recruitment. But since he's been enrolled at Michigan since January, this would have to be considered a transfer.

Mitchell is a class of 2016 player who was rated as a four-star composite. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound star is from Egg Harbor City, New Jersey.

Reasons for Mitchell's suspension have not been released. Harbaugh became frustrated with the press when asked about it last week.
