    Drew Singleton, Ex-Wolverine

    Redshirt freshman linebacker Drew Singleton has been granted his release to transfer. Singleton came to Michigan in the 2017 class from Paramus (NJ) Catholic, the same school that sent Jabrill Peppers and Rashan Gary to the Wolverines. Singleton tore his ACL as a senior in high school, and he was not recovered enough to play by his freshman year of college.

    I initially gave Singleton a TTB Rating of 83 (LINK), and I didn't see a reason to change it since he tore his ACL. He entered college with a loaded linebacker class (Singleton, Josh Ross, Jordan Anthony, Ben Mason), which has been whittled down to two now that Singleton is transferring and Mason moved to fullback. Singleton was battling at WILL linebacker this season, but that job has mostly been split between Ross and junior Devin Gil.

    Singleton's career stat line at Michigan:

    1 kickoff return for 5 yards

    Michigan now has at least 15 scholarships open for the 2019 class (LINK).

    Michigan vs. Wisconsin Awards

     

    Let's see more of this guy on offense . . . Dylan McCaffrey. I liked that Michigan started trying to devise ways to get McCaffrey involved in the offense, even with Shea Patterson still in the game. It didn't prove beneficial in this game (McCaffrey lined up at slot receiver, motioned in behind the QB, and then ran a return motion while Michigan threw a quick screen to the opposite side), but it may set up some things in the future. The presence of an athletic QB (who had a 44-yard TD run) who can also throw the ball is probably more versatile than having a Wildcat QB like Jabrill Peppers, even though McCaffrey isn't as explosive.
