Ex-Wolverine Update: Transfers, Summer 2019

Ex-Wolverine Update: Transfers, Summer 2019

In keeping track of players who used to play for Michigan, here’s what I think is a comprehensive rundown of former Wolverines who still have eligibility remaining and have been pursuing college football careers. There may be former walk-ons who have transferred elsewhere, but I track mainly scholarship players.


Brian Cole, S (Mississippi State): Cole is expected to start at nickel back for the Bulldogs.

Kekoa Crawford, WR (Cal): Crawford is in the two-deep for Cal, where he is expected to play mostly their Z receiver position.

Hit the jump for more.

Kingston Davis, RB (unknown): As far as I know, Davis is still out of football after being arrested while at UAB last fall.

Ja’Raymond Hall, OT (Central Michigan): Hall is the expected starter at left tackle for the Chippewas. He redshirted at Michigan in 2017 and sat out 2018 while transferring.

James Hudson III, OT (Cincinnati): Hudson will sit out the 2019 season after transferring.

Deron Irving-Bey, DE (Central Michigan): Irving-Bey was academically dismissed from CMU after the fall but is hoping to return to the team this fall after spending some time at a community college.

Ron Johnson, Jr., DE (Rutgers): Johnson is transferring to Rutgers, where he would have to sit out a year, unless he graduated from Michigan.

Oliver Martin, WR (Iowa): Martin will likely have to sit out the 2019 season due to transfer rules.

Eddie McDoom, WR (South Florida): McDoom is in the two-deep at USF and playing mostly slot receiver.

Ahmir Mitchell, WR (Rutgers): Mitchell played last season at Arizona Western College, a JUCO, but it’s not clear whether he will continue playing there or go somewhere else.

Brandon Peters, QB (Illinois): Peters will be immediately eligible to play at Illinois this fall, where he will likely be battling with true freshman dual-threat Isaiah Williams for the starting job.

Myles Sims, CB (Georgia Tech): Sims redshirted at Michigan in 2018 and will likely sit out 2019, too, as he transfers to Georgia Tech.

Drew Singleton, LB (Rutgers): Singleton was ruled immediately eligible by the NCAA to play at Rutgers in 2019.

Aubrey Solomon, DT (Tennessee): Solomon is likely to redshirt at Tennessee this year, but he’s still waiting on the NCAA’s judgment of whether he will be immediately eligible or not.

Benjamin St-Juste, CB (Minnesota): St-Juste is likely to redshirt at Minnesota this year, but he’s still waiting on the NCAA’s judgment of whether he will be immediately eligible or not.

Kurt Taylor, RB (Iowa Central Community College): Taylor is headed to ICCC to play running back will be eligible immediately.

Ryan Tice, K (Central Michigan): Tice was CMU’s starting kicker in 2018, making 10/12 field goals; he was 6/7 from 40-49 yards and also hit a 53-yarder, which is #2 all-time at CMU.

Nolan Ulizio, OT (Pitt): Ulizio is expected to start at right tackle for Pitt this fall.

Kareem Walker, RB (Mississippi State): Walker’s spot on the depth chart is unclear right now. At Mississippi State there are two returning running backs who averaged 6.3 and 7.3 yards per carry.

Keith Washington, CB (West Virginia): Despite having a solid season in 2018 (40 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, 2 interceptions, 1 TD, 9 pass breakups), Washington is listed as a backup cornerback for WVU.

Tyrone Wheatley, Jr., TE (Stony Brook): Wheatley is no longer on Stony Brook’s roster, so I assume his college football playing career is over, despite having one year of eligibility remaining.

Stay tuned for updates on former commits.

    Ron Johnson graduated, or at least that’s what was reported

    I was certain Washington started at WV, and saw him play a few times

    Anything on Swenson at OU?

    Thanks for putting this lost together. Ex-Wolverine lists is always a good read!

      Washington was a part-time starter (6 games).
