TRANSFERS

Ross Douglas, LB (Rutgers): Douglas made 4 tackles in a 31-24 win over Maryland.

Ahmir Mitchell, WR (Rutgers): Mitchell, who had been sitting out due to an ACL tear, was dismissed from the team in late October for undisclosed reasons.

Shane Morris, QB (Central Michigan): Morris completed 12/30 passes for 243 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions in a back-and-forth, 35-28 win over Western Michigan. He also ran 8 times for 27 yards and 2 scores.

Wyatt Shallman, DE (Ohio): Shallman made 2 tackles in a 45-28 win over Miami-OH on Halloween night.

Logan Tuley-Tillman, OT (UTEP): Tuley-Tillman has been the starting left tackle for the UTEP Miners. Unfortunately for them, they’re 0-9. Along with Georgia Southern, they’re the only winless teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision. No teams went winless in 2016, but Kansas and UCF both achieved that feat in 2015.

Keith Washington, CB (Copiah-Lincoln Community College): Washington made 1 tackle in a 40-21 loss to Pearl River Community College in the season finale. Washington ends his year with 20 tackles, 2 interceptions, 1 fumble recovery, 1 forced fumble, and 5 pass breakups. Co-Lin went 4-5 this season.

Hit the jump for news on former commitments and coaches.

FORMER COMMITMENTS

Shaun Crawford, CB (Notre Dame): Crawford made 4 tackles in a 48-37 win over Wake Forest.

Dele’ Harding, LB (Illinois): Harding made 6 tackles in a 29-10 loss to Purdue.

Damien Harris, RB (Alabama): Harris had 9 carries for 33 yards in a 24-10 win over LSU.

David Reese II, LB (Florida): Reese made 13 tackles in a 45-16 loss to Missouri. Florida is now 3-5.

Antwaine Richardson, CB (Maryland): Richardson made 2 kickoff returns for 42 yards in a 31-24 loss to Rutgers.

Darian Roseboro, DE (N.C. State): Roseboro made 4 tackles in a 38-31 loss to Clemson.

Vic Viramontes, QB (Riverside City College): Viramontes was 11/20 for 81 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception in a 51-14 win over Long Beach City College. He also ran 18 times for 159 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Mike Weber, RB (Ohio State): Weber had 5 carries for 27 yards, 1 catch for 6 yards, and 6 kickoff returns for 103 yards in an embarrassing 55-24 loss to Iowa.

FORMER COACHES

D.J. Durkin, Head Coach (Maryland): Durkin and the Terrapins fell to lowly Rutgers, 31-24. Maryland is now 4-5 this season. This game ended with the Terps playing their fifth-string QB, since Tyrell Pigrome, Kasim Hill, Max Bortenschlager, and Caleb Henderson all having suffered injuries. That fifth-stringer is Ryan Brand, a one-time Air Force commit who’s from Detroit (MI) U of D Jesuit.

Brady Hoke, Defensive Line Coach (Tennessee): Tennessee stopped a four-game losing streak with a 24-10 win over Southern Miss. The Volunteers are now 4-5 on the season.

Roy Manning, Outside Linebackers Coach (Washington State): Manning and the Cougars moved to 8-2 after a 24-21 win over Stanford.

Rich Rodriguez, Head Coach (Arizona): The Wildcats fell to 6-3 after a 49-35 loss to USC. Arizona QB Khalil Tate surpassed 1,000 yards rushing for the season with 26 carries for 161 yards and 1 touchdown in this one. He also completed 14/31 passes for 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.

    Looks like the Rich Rod ascension has been stopped.
    Would be an interesting bowl game match-up… Don Brown D against Rich Rob O, might be a ratings bonanza, but would hate to see Mike McCray in that game.

        Khalil Tate is a fun player to watch. Arizona is a very flawed team, especially on defense, but that offense can score points, and Tate can make plays. (Washington State is basically a Michigan-level defense, according to FEI and S&P+, and Arizona hung over 50 on them, so the offense is capable of putting up good numbers against good defenses.) I don’t think anything good could come out of us playing Arizona. They are not an historically good program; nor are they good enough this year that we would get credit for a win. Yet I could envision a lot of results that would lead to further bickering among Michigan fans.

          Michigan would have nothing to gain from beating the coach it fired. Plenty to lose. Like playing Appalachian State – just an excuse to relive bad times.

      I wouldn’t really be worried about McCray in that game. I don’t think Rodriguez is the type of guy who would really hurt McCray. He’s not known for using his backs to catch the ball out of the backfield. I think Bush, the safeties, and the non-Hurst interior DL would be bigger issues.

    It is interesting that these updates tell us that Shane Morris is exactly who we thought he was. He’s been very streaky for Central. I was worried that he would have a Heisman worthy season piloting Central (like Thomas Rawls and others), but no.

      Rawls averaged 5 ypc and had 1100 yards and 10 TDs. He was OK. Very far from Heisman worthy.

        Sorry, wasn’t touting Rawls for the Heisman, but he did do much better after he left. Shane hasn’t.

      Yeah, he’s been better at CMU than I expected, but he’s still not very good. He’s only completing 55% of his passes or so.
