Boubacar Cissoko – Cornerback – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech
Cissoko was an early commitment in 2007.  Highly recruited, he played extensively as a freshman in 2008.  A starter at the beginning of 2009, Cissoko made 16 tackles, 2 pass breakups, and 1 interception before being suspended and eventually kicked off the team for personal conduct issues.  Cissoko was then arrested for robbery charges that occurred after his football career ended.  He was released from jail and played semi-pro football.
Current status: Out of football

Taylor Hill, ex-Wolverine

Class of 2008 linebacker/defensive end Taylor Hill decided to transfer before his freshman year even began. I never saw any reports of this, but apparently he decided to transfer to Youngstown State University. He enrolled in January.

If the 2008 class were still intact, Hill would probably be battling Brandon Herron, Marell Evans, Steve Watson, and fellow immediate transfer Marcus Witherspoon for the starting job as hybrid DE/OLB.
