    The list of Michigan transfers this offseason continues to grow. The latest is Wyatt Shallman, who signed with the Wolverines as the No. 2 fullback in the 2013 recruiting class.

    Shallman’s lofty rankings coming out of high school never translated to college, and now he’ll turn his attention to finding a spot to finish his collegiate career on a high note.

    He released the following statement on Twitter.

    “I am incredibly thankful to the University of Michigan for the last 4 years of football, school, and college life that I have experienced here. These last 4 years have allowed me to grow as a man, and, more importantly, become a Michigan Man. I can’t say thank you enough to all the professors, coaches, and friends that have made, and continue to make, my experience at the University of Michigan nothing short of amazing. After many prayers and long conversations with my family, I have decide to pursue my 5th and last year of eligibility to play football at another university. Thank you to everyone who has supported me here at the University of Michigan. I am forever grateful to this university and everyone who is a part of this amazing place.”

    Shallman has one year of eligibility remaining and will be able to participate immediately due to NCAA transfer rules.
