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.

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Gastonia (NC) Hunter Huss cornerback Tony Davis, a Duke commit, was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’1″, 186 lb. prospect with offers from Duke, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #31 cornerback, and #355 overall. He committed to the Blue Devils in December of 2017, but two crystal ball picks have come in since that time that have him flipping to North Carolina.

Oakton (VA) Flint Hill running back Jordan Houston was offered by Michigan. He’s a 5’9″, 190-pounder with offers from Maryland, Penn State, Pitt, and Virginia Tech, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #7 all-purpose back, and #632 overall. As a junior in 2017, he had 1,971 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns, and he averaged 34.0 yards/catch on 10 receptions, adding 4 touchdowns. All eight crystal ball picks have him heading to Virginia Tech.

Te’Cory Couch, Ex-Wolverine

Hollywood (FL) Chaminade-Madonna CB Te’Cory Couch (image via LSU Football Report)

Hollywood (FL) Chaminade-Madonna cornerback Te’Cory Couch decommitted from Michigan on Saturday. He had originally committed to the Wolverines in mid-April (LINK). Couch was also committed to Tennessee at one point, so this idea isn’t new for him.

Couch is a 247 Composite 4-star, the #16 athlete, and #244 overall. He’s listed by 247 at 5’9.5″ and 148 lbs., though he’s reportedly bigger than that by now. There was some talk that he would end up playing safety at the next level, but it now looks like he will be doing that for Miami (or at least it looks like he will commit to Miami temporarily).

I think Couch is a pretty smooth athlete, although he does not look like a game-changing athlete as a defensive back. This hurts Michigan’s recruiting class from a perception standpoint, but the Wolverines should be able to find a suitable replacement. Michigan’s cornerbacks have performed at a very high level over the past few years, and other recruits surely see that. Georgia cornerback D.J. Turner is set to announce on June 25, and odds are that he will pick Michigan.

On the other hand, Chaminade-Madonna produces a ton of talented prospects, and Couch’s departure won’t help to grease the wheels to a solid program. Michigan is also recruiting wide receiver teammate John Dunmore, a 4-star prospect who was very high on the Wolverines following his April visit, too.

Michigan now has 10 commits remaining in the 2019 class.
