Ex-Wolverine Update: Post-2017 Recap

Shane Morris

TRANSFERS

Devin Asiasi, TE (UCLA): Asiasi sat out the season due to NCAA transfer rules. He will presumably stick around to play for Chip Kelly as a redshirt sophomore in 2018.

Kyle Bosch, OG (West Virginia): Bosch started 12 games for West Virginia, who suffered a 30-14 loss to Utah in their bowl game. The Mountaineers went 7-5 in the regular season (7-6 overall). Bosch is out of eligibility, and NFL Draft Scout ranks him as the #15 offensive guard in the 2018 draft class.

Ross Douglas, LB (Rutgers): Rutgers went 4-8 and didn’t play in a bowl game, so Douglas finished his final college season with 37 tackles, 4 pass breakups, and 1 quarterback hurry.

Ja’Raymond Hall, OG (Central Michigan): Hall announced that he would transfer to Central Michigan.

Shane Morris, QB (Central Michigan): Morris went 8-5 as a starter at Central Michigan, ending the year with a 37-14 loss to Wyoming in their bowl game; Morris was 23/39 (59%) for 329 yards, 1 TD, and 4 INT, and he ran 7 times for -34 yards in the game. You can watch highlights of the Idaho Potato Bowl here (LINK). Overall, he completed 249/446 passes (55.8%) for 3,237 yards, 27 TD, and 17 INT as a senior. He ran 88 times for 93 yards (1.1 YPC) and 3 TD. He even tossed in 1 punt for 43 yards against Western Michigan earlier in the year. Out of college eligibility, he is ranked as the #42 quarterback by NFL Draft Scout.

Dan Samuelson, OG (Eastern Michigan): Samuelson was a part-time starter for EMU this season. He won the Team Player Award and was on the MAC’s All-Academic Team.  The Eagles went 5-7 and did not make it to a bowl game. Samuelson’s college eligibility is completed.

Wyatt Shallman, DE (Ohio): Shallman had 2 quarterback hurries in his final collegiate game, a 41-6 win over UAB in the bowl game. Ohio finished the year at 9-4. Shallman has only played in the bowl game and during a five-game stretch in the middle of the season, totaling 13 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 2 quarterback hurries, and 1 pass breakup.

Keith Washington, CB (Copiah-Lincoln Community College): Washington, who played this past season at Co-Lin, is transferring to West Virginia.

Jedd Fisch

Michigan passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch, who had signed a 2-year extension for the 2016-2017 seasons, is headed to UCLA to be Jim Mora’s offensive coordinator. Fisch was hired by Jim Harbaugh after a two-year stint as the Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator. Fisch worked with the receivers and quarterbacks and was involved with the play calling during his time in Ann Arbor.
