Michigan’s football program is currently in the middle of Jim Harbaugh’s best season in Ann Arbor, but the Wolverines have suffered a loss tonight.
Drew Singleton, a four-star sophomore linebacker, has opted to transfer out of the program.
247Sports has confirmed news of the transfer with a Michigan spokesman.
247Sports confirmed with Michigan spokesman Dave Ablauf on Wednesday afternoon that second-year linebacker Drew Singleton has asked for and received a release from the program.
Singleton, a Paramus (NJ) Catholic native, was once a Top100 recruit who committed to Michigan over a plethora of programs back in the 2017 recruiting cycle. He injured his knee his senior year at Paramus Catholic, but had worked his way back to full health this season and saw considerable time on special teams early on in the year.
The former four-star’s transfer marks the fourth player to depart Michigan’s 2017 recruiting cycle, joining Corey Malone-Hatcher, Ja’Raymond Hall and Deron Irving-Bey.
Singleton was ranked the No. 5 OLB and No. 79 overall recruit by 247Sports’ Composite Rankings coming out of high school in 2017.
Michigan is set to play Michigan State on Saturday.
