Former Michigan RB/DB Ross Taylor-Douglas headed to Rutgers

Former Michigan running back and defensive back Ross Taylor-Douglas is graduate transferring to Rutgers, according to a post on his Twitter.

A former four-star recruit from the Cleveland area, Taylor-Douglas will be immediately eligible to play upon arriving in Piscataway and will have two years of eligibility remaining. He committed to the Scarlet Knights while taking an official visit this weekend.

Taylor-Douglas appeared in five games in Ann Arbor last year and had 18 yards on 10 carries. He is expected to play defense at Rutgers in former Ohio State defensive coordinator Chris Ash’s first year as head coach.

Just how big an addition Taylor-Douglas will be remains to be seen, but this is still a significant addition for a Rutgers team that desperately needs to bounce back.
