Michigan Wolverines special teams extraordinaire Dennis Norfleet could be on the market, as Division II Tuskegee University has been granted permission to talk to him about potentially playing there.
The crazy part is that even though Norfleet is currently suspended from the team, there is a plan in place for him to return thus why he would be granted a release to speak to other schools is a bit strange.
This development was reported by both ESPN’s Dan Murphy and Angelique S. Changelis of the Detroit News.
Dennis Norfleet has been granted a release to talk to other schools, but "there is a plan in place" for him to return to Michigan.

Harbaugh met today with beat writers. On Norfleet: "it's our desire he remain at Michigan." said there's a "plan" in place to get his degree

In three years at Michigan, Norfleet has returned 94 kickoffs for 2,203 yards while also returning 15 punts for 90 yards.
No matter where he plays next season, if anywhere, he has one year of eligibility remaining. As of now, however, though he may be speaking to other schools, he is still listed on Michigan’s official roster.
Campus Sports will update Norfleet’s situation as more details become available.
