Report: Michigan QB Shane Morris To Pursue Grad Transfer

Michigan quarterback Shane Morris will pursue a grad transfer, per a report.

As a graduate transfer, Morris will be immediately eligible next season.

ESPN's Tom VanHaaren broke the news this evening.

For the season, the left-handed Morris completed 4-of-5 passes for 45 yards in a backup role. He sat out the 2015 season as a redshirt.

A former five-star recruit out of Warren (Mich.) De La Salle, Morris' first big moment came when he replaced Devin Gardner as Michigan's starter for the 2013 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. He connected on 24-of-38 passes for 196 yards and one interception while adding 43 rushing yards in a 31-14 loss to Kansas State.

Morris also started one game, against Minnesota, as a sophomore before a concussion effectively ended his season.

For his career, Morris was 47-of-92 passing for 434 yards and five interceptions. He also tallied 87 yards rushing on 18 attempts.
