Deron Irving-Bey, Ex-Wolverine

Deron Irving-Bey

Redshirt freshman defensive tackle Deron Irving-Bey is transferring out of the program and is headed to Central Michigan. Irving-Bey is a 6’5″, 274-pounder who was a 4-star, the #9 strongside end, and #249 overall in the class of 2017. He will join fellow 2017 recruit Ja’Raymond Hall, an offensive guard, at CMU.

I gave Irving-Bey a TTB Rating of 59 when he committed (LINK) and parked him at #69 in this year’s countdown (LINK). This transfer is not at all surprising, though I thought he would stick around for a couple years before transferring. Despite playing in the 2017 Army All-American Bowl, I thought he was overrated by the recruiting sites.

Michigan has now lost three commits from that 2017 class, including Hall, Irving-Bey, and defensive end Corey Malone-Hatcher, who medically retired.

Final TTB Ratings for 2018

Thanks to Bryan and Keith for the recent, generous donations through Paypal!

It’s been a long time coming because I’ve been so busy, but here are the final TTB Ratings for the class of 2018.

A note on the ratings: These are Michigan-specific ratings, so a guy who would be an instant starter at Eastern Michigan might not be quite so much of an individual standout playing against Michigan’s opponents . . . and he might even have a hard time getting on the field over some other Wolverines. It’s tricky trying to determine how the depth chart will shake out over the next three to five years, but I’m here for the heavy lifting. For more of an explanation, check out this page here (LINK).

Hit the jump for the final rankings.
