Third-year player Anthony Solomon has entered the transfer portal. He was a 4-star, the #14 outside linebacker, and #223 overall in the 2019 class.

Solomon was recruited out of Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas as a Viper in Don Brown’s defense, and that made sense with him at 6’0″ and 190 lbs. He bulked up to 6’1″ and 215 lbs. by the 2021 season, but it wasn’t enough to do any more than play in five games, almost entirely on special teams. He made 1 tackle in 2019, 5 tackles in 2020, and 0 in 2021. I ranked him at #39 in the 2021 Season Countdown (LINK), mistakenly counting on some injury issues to get him on the field. Luckily, Michigan’s linebackers stayed healthy, negating the need for a ton of depth. Joshua Ross, Junior Colson, Nikhai Hill-Green, and Michael Barrett got the vast majority of snaps in the position group.

Michigan needs to shed a bunch of players going into next season to make room for the incoming recruits and transfers, and this is just the beginning. The Wolverines are bringing in several linebackers in the 2022 class, and they appear to have their starters for 2022 already in place with Colson and Hill-Green.

Here’s a link to the scholarship count (LINK).
