Some transferred because they weren’t a fit for new schemes. Others were searching for playing time. Others, perhaps, weren’t content in Ann Arbor.
Whatever their reasons, several former Wolverines played at other schools in 2021.
For those looking for a ‘grass is greener’ situation, did it end up being so? Some who were looking for increased playing time certainly found it. A handful played in conference championship games — notably the duo who ended up at Utah State. One stood out in a big way in a good way — another, not so much. Some you might not have known are still playing.
Here is how those who were once Michigan Wolverines that opted to transfer did at their school of choice.

In terms of yards gained, he’s the 25th-ranked back in the country, and 24th in touchdowns.
