TRANSFERS

Devin Asiasi, TE (UCLA): Asiasi sat out the season due to NCAA transfer rules. From what I can gather, he’s pegged to be the #2 tight end this season.

Ian Bunting, TE (California): Bunting will be a fifth year senior at Cal this fall.

Brian Cole, S (Mississippi State): Cole is listed as a 6’2″, 210 lb. redshirt junior safety at Mississippi State and is projected to be the Bulldogs’ starting nickel player. He spent last season at East Mississippi Community College.

Kekoa Crawford, WR: Crawford will transfer, though his destination is unknown.

Kingston Davis, RB (UAB): Davis is a 6’0″, 245 lb. running back at UAB after spending last season at Independence Community College in Kansas. He looks to be one of the featured players on the upcoming season of Last Chance U on Netflix.

Ja’Raymond Hall, OG (Central Michigan): Hall announced that he would transfer to Central Michigan in the off-season, which means he will have to sit out 2018 due to NCAA transfer rules.

Elysee Mbem-Bosse, LB: It’s unknown at this point whether Mbem-Bosse will continue his football career.

Kareem Walker, RB: Walker will transfer, though his destination is unknown.

Keith Washington, CB (West Virginia): Washington, who played this past season at Co-Lin, has transferred to West Virginia, where he’s listed as a 6’0″, 173 lb. redshirt junior cornerback.

Maurice Ways, WR (California): Ways will be a fifth year senior at Cal this fall.

Kevin Doyle, Ex-Wolverine

Kevin Doyle

Washington (DC) St. John’s quarterback Kevin Doyle decommitted from Michigan on Sunday afternoon. He had been committed to Michigan since September. Doyle is a 3-star, the #23 pro-style quarterback, and #555 overall. He has other offers from Arizona, Boston College, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Pitt, Syracuse, and West Virginia, among others.

I gave Doyle a TTB Rating of 76 (LINK), comparing him to the likes of Wilton Speight and John Navarre – decent quarterbacks, but not stars.

Doyle did not sign during the early signing period in December, and Michigan had been talking to him about going to prep school for a year and reclassifying to the 2019 class. Doyle had been aware of that plan for a while, but with a decent offer list, it always seemed like it might be difficult to convince him to spend an extra year in school when he doesn’t need it academically. He will presumably sign with another FBS school, although it’s unclear at this moment which program is in the driver’s seat.

Michigan’s depth chart for 2018 now looks like this (listed in order of experience):

  1. Shea Patterson (Jr.)
  2. Brandon Peters (RS So.)
  3. Dylan McCaffrey (RS Fr.)
  4. Joe Milton (Fr.)
