    Devin Asiasi is reportedly looking to transfer from Michigan after one season with the Wolverines. The former 4-star tight end will look to head back to the west coast. 


    We all get homesick every once in awhile, and Devin Asiasi isn’t any different.

    The rising sophomore is reportedly looking to transfer from Michigan after one season with the Wolverines, according to 247Sports.

    Asiasi played in all 13 games for Jim Harbaugh’s team this past season and caught only two passes for 18 yards and a touchdown.

    He’s originally from San Mateo, California. And he’ll likely wind up back on the west coast if he goes through with the transfer.

    The former 4-star prospect was ranked as the No. 3 tight end and No. 75 overall player in the country in the 2016 recruiting class.

    His high school teammate, former 4-star defensive tackle Boss Tagaloa, also considered signing with Michigan but instead opted to stay close to home with the UCLA Bruins. So, an obvious transfer destination for Asiasi would be UCLA for those reasons alone.

    But if a Pac-12 home is what he’s looking for, then Washington may be a program to consider. Aside from the fact the Huskies reached the College Football Playoff in the 2016-17 season, four of their five returning tight ends will be upperclassmen. Two more tight ends from this past season are graduating, so the depth chart is a little more favorable than at Cal, Oregon or USC where there would be a few players ahead of Asiasi.

    In terms of Michigan’s depth chart, Asiasi’s impending transfer isn’t ideal. The Wolverines are losing Jake Butt to graduation and the 2017 NFL Draft, and Asiasi was expected to see an increased role within the offense next season.

    However, there are nine other tight ends on the roster set to return barring any other transfers. One of them is former 3-star recruit Nick Eubanks, who chose Michigan over Florida and others in that 2016 class.
