According to a report from College Football Talk, which is associated with NBC Sports, Derrick Green has been granted his release from Michigan and will transfer.
Here is an excerpt from CFT:
A source with knowledge of the situation has confirmed to CFT that Green received a release from his UM scholarship earlier this week and will transfer out of the Wolverines football program. Rumors have been swirling for weeks that Green is a potential, or even likely transfer, although there has been no official confirmation from either side.
Green is a former 5-star running back recruit who was considered to be one of the best players in the class of 2013. Unfortunately, he never lived up to the hype that surrounded him before joining the Wolverines.
In his three seasons at Michigan, Green rushed for 898 yards on 212 carries.
According to CFT, a spokesperson for Michigan would not confirm nor deny that Green was granted his release.
“The student-athlete is the one that should be confirming his decision… as we prefer they communicate their desire to transfer/graduate and play another season elsewhere. We do not confirm those decisions as an institution,” a UM spokesperson said in response to an email seeking confirmation of Green’s decision to transfer.
