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).
