I always like to keep up with former Michigan players, commits, and coaches. As we go into this crazy 2020 season (or not), here’s a look at where things stand for every Michigan player who has transferred elsewhere. If you want a recap of how their 2019 seasons went, check out this post (LINK).
LB Jordan Anthony: Anthony entered the transfer portal and graduated from Michigan over the summer, but it does not appear that he has picked a landing spot yet.
WR Tarik Black (Texas): In his first season after leaving Ann Arbor, Black is projected to be a backup Z receiver for the Longhorns.
S Brian Cole II: Cole, who was drafted in the 7th round out of Mississippi State, was recently waived by the Vikings.
WR Kekoa Crawford (Cal): Crawford was expected to be a starting receiver for Cal this year, but the Pac-12 canceled/postponed its season.

LB Dele’ Harding: Harding finished his career at Illinois, and it does not appear that he has landed a professional football gig.
DE Deron Irving-Bey (Central Michigan): Irving-Bey was pegged to be a backup defensive end for the Chippewas before the MAC season was canceled/postponed.
DE Ron Johnson, Jr.: Johnson, who joined Towson’s team late last fall, is no longer listed on the roster.
S Jaylen Kelly-Powell (Akron): Kelly-Powell transferred to Akron to compete for a starting job in the secondary this season, but the MAC season’s cancellation/postponement happened.
DE Aaron Lewis, Jr. (Rutgers): Lewis, who spent the winter semester at Michigan after enrolling early, has transferred to Rutgers due to a family medical situation.
WR Oliver Martin (Nebraska): Martin, who spent 2017-2018 at Michigan and 2019 at Iowa, has now transferred to Nebraska, where he’s a walk-on.
LB Elysee Mbem-Bosse (Davenport): Mbem-Bosse, who has not played football since 2017, signed with Division II Davenport back in February. Davenport’s season has been canceled/postponed.
WR Eddie McDoom (USF): McDoom was competing for a starting job at receiver for the Bulls, but he opted out of the season due to coronavirus concerns.
QB Brandon Peters (Illinois): Peters was projected to start for a second year at Illinois. His father reported that Peters plans to play, even if the season is postponed to the fall of 2021 (LINK).
RB O’Maury Samuels (New Mexico State): Samuels, projected to be the Aggies’ starting running back, is dealing with the postponement/cancellation of NMSU’s season.
CB Myles Sims (Georgia Tech): Sims is pegged as a backup cornerback for the Yellowjackets.
LB Drew Singleton (Rutgers): Singleton was slated to be a backup middle linebacker for the Scarlet Knights before the season’s postponement/cancellation.
DT Aubrey Solomon (Tennessee): Solomon is likely a starter at defensive end in Tennessee’s 3-4 defense this season.
OG Stephen Spanellis (Vanderbilt): Spanellis is listed as a 6’5″, 300 lb. offensive lineman on Vanderbilt’s roster. It’s unclear whether he will earn a starting gig or not.
