Junior wide receiver Eddie McDoom has decided to transfer. His current destination is unknown.
McDoom has 24 rushes for 203 yards (8.5 yards/carry), along with 16 catches for 140 yards (8.8 yards/catch), during his two years on campus. He was mostly a jet sweep guy but hasn’t had a big impact in the passing game. I ranked him #38 in this year’s countdown (LINK).
Personally, I do not feel Michigan has done a great job of utilizing him over the past couple seasons. I think he would be a good returner, but Michigan hasn’t used him in the return game. He’s a jet sweep and bubble screen guy, but Michigan hasn’t used much of the bubble screen half of that equation. The unfortunate thing is that this offense with Shea Patterson probably fits McDoom better than Wilton Speight- and Brandon Peters-style offenses over the past two seasons, but we won’t get a chance to see it.
Michigan now has a relatively thin depth chart at wide receiver with just the following scholarship options:
- Grant Perry (Sr.)
- Tarik Black (So.)
- Nico Collins (So.)
- Donovan Peoples-Jones (So.)
- Oliver Martin (RS Fr.)
- Ronnie Bell (Fr.)
Nate Schoenle and Jake McCurry are two walk-on receivers who have earned a little bit of hype.
Michigan now has just 84 scholarship players on the roster for 2018 (LINK).
