Former Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight clarified a few things on Friday night.

Earlier this week, Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight, who has started the majority of the team's games over the past two seasons, announced that he'll be transferring ahead of his final season. Friday, he issued an update on his situation.

Speight revealed that Michigan will not let him transfer to another Big Ten school or any of the schools on the program's 2018 schedule. Next year, the Wolverines play Notre Dame, Western Michigan and SMU out of conference.

Speight also noted that he chose to transfer before the team's bowl game because he plans on enrolling at his new school in January. Michigan will likely be playing in a bowl game in late December or early January.

We'll keep you updated on his situation.
