Second-year player Darion Green-Warren is transferring. Green-Warren was a 4-star, the #14 cornerback, and #190 overall in the 2020 class. He was also a participant in the All-American Bowl.
Green-Warren transferred from Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei to Harbor City (CA) Narbonne before his senior year, and he was a tough, productive corner at both spots. He was never the most athletic player, but he was supposed to be competitive and technical. He played pretty well when we saw him on a national stage in the All-American Bowl, but the athleticism wasn’t anything special.
I thought Green-Warren would play well at Michigan because he had some similar traits to other successful Wolverine cornerbacks, but cornerbacks coach Mike Zordich left and so did defensive coordinator Don Brown. Green-Warren never recorded any statistics at Michigan, and I’m not sure he ever played in a game.
Green-Warren is the fifth player from the 2020 class to transfer, joining LB Osman Savage (Alabama A&M), DE Aaron Lewis (Rutgers), LB Cornell Wheeler (Kansas), and LB William Mohan (Tennessee).
Michigan currently has 94 scholarship players slated to be on the roster in 2022, so they still need to shed nine players in order to get down to the limit.
