Former Michigan cornerback Cullen Christian redshirted at Pitt this past season due to NCAA transfer rules. He transferred to Pitt in order to follow former Michigan defensive backs coach Tony Gibson, who has since been hired for the same role at Arizona. Christian made several negative comments on Twitter about Gibson and Pitt head coach Todd Graham for leaving Pitt so soon. Christian will presumably remain at Pitt with new head coach Paul Chryst, since he’s already transferred once and he’s near home.
Former Michigan signee Demar Dorsey spent this past season at Grand Rapids Community College in Michigan. He played in just seven games and ended the season with 10.5 tackles, 1 interception (for 51 yards), 4 pass breakups, and 2 kickoff returns for 51 yards. He’s going to need a new place to play, though, because GRCC disbanded its football program this past week.
Former Michigan commit Tony Drake spent 2010 as a wide receiver/running back at Colorado State, but was declared academically ineligible for the 2011 season. It’s unclear if he will return to the program.
Former Michigan safety Carvin Johnson left the football program in the middle of the 2011 season. He was enrolled at Michigan throughout the fall semester. Prior to his departure, he played in eight games for the Wolverines and made 14 tackles, 1 pass breakup, and 1 fumble recovery.
Former Michigan signee Conelius Jones was academically ineligible to play at Marshall this past season. Since graduating in 2010, he has yet to appear on a college roster. His current status is unknown.
Former Michigan signee Antonio Kinard attended Hargrave Military Academy in 2010, then signed with Miami in 2011 . . . and was declared academically ineligible at Miami, too. He is headed to Arizona Western to play football in fall 2012.
Former Michigan center Christian Pace injured his shoulder during practice in 2010 and left the team this past off-season on a medical scholarship. He is still enrolled at the University of Michigan.
Former Michigan linebacker Davion Rogers spent the 2011 season as a 6’6″, 215 lb. linebacker at Youngstown State. He played in 11 games and made 45 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 5 pass breakups, and 1 interception (which was returned 27 yards for a touchdown). He also blocked 2 kicks.
Former Michigan safety Ray Vinopal sat out the 2011 season at Pitt due to NCAA transfer rules. In much the same situation as Cullen Christian (minus the childish Twitter rant), he will be a redshirt sophomore in fall 2012.
Former Michigan running back Austin White sat out the 2011 season at Central Michigan due to NCAA transfer rules. He will be a redshirt sophomore at CMU in fall 2012.
The current whereabouts of former Michigan defensive tackle Terry Talbott and wide receiver D.J. Williamson are unknown.
Class of 2011 Bonus: Former Michigan offensive lineman Tony Posada is no longer playing football. Thanks for yet another wasted scholarship, Rich Rodriguez!
