It seems that wide receiver D.J. Williamson has left the football program. Though there has been no official announcement, he no longer appears on the roster, and there were rumors all spring that he had decided to transfer. Williamson was a class of 2010 player who redshirted as a true freshman. Rivals ranked him as a 3-star and the #53 player in the state of Ohio. Scout ranked him as a 2-star and the #165 wide receiver in the country. Other than straight-line speed, Williamson didn’t seem to offer much as a player; furthermore, there were rumors that he dropped a lot of passes in practice and turned the coaches off with his unreliability.
This leaves the Wolverines with 11 wideouts on the 2011 roster but only 7 remaining for 2012. I can’t help but wonder why the new coaching staff turned away class of 2011 receiver Devin Lucien, who would have been a Wolverine if the coaches hadn’t him to play defensive back instead.
