Michigan OL Ja'Raymond Hall Will Transfer To Central Michigan

Central Michigan's football field on a nice day.

Michigan freshman OL Ja'Raymond Hall is transferring from the Wolverines to nearby MAC program Central Michigan.

Ja'Raymond Hall was a four-star recruit in the class of 2017.

247Sports ranked him the No. 301 player in the country, and the No. 30 offensive tackle. He was the No. 8 2017 recruit out of Michigan.

After not playing as a true freshman this fall, Hall is heading to Central Michigan to play for head coach John Bonamego. From 247:

Following an early December visit to Mount Pleasant, Michigan freshman offensive lineman Ja'Raymond Hall has transferred to play for Central Michigan, a source told The Michigan Insider. The papers for enrollment have been signed, sent, and delivered.

The athletic department at Central Michigan confirmed the transfer on Saturday.

"We got to know Ja'Raymond well when we recruited him as a high school student," CMU coach John Bonamego said. "When he reached out, we were interested because he will fit in well in our locker room and as a student-athlete on the CMU campus."

Arizona and Iowa State were originally cited as potential destinations when 247 first reported that he may leave Michigan first popped up. Instead, the Detroit native is staying close to home.

The Chippewas finished 8-5 this season, with a 6-2 MAC record and third place finish in the competitive West division. The team lost to Wyoming in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl earlier this month.
