Michigan transfer WR Ahmir Mitchell leaning towards Rutgers

Four-star wide receiver Ahmir Mitchell was one of the best players in the Michigan Wolverines’ 2016 recruiting class, but it looks like he won’t be with the team going forward. He was granted his release from the team earlier this week after he was suspended just over two weeks ago.

Now it looks like the receiver may have found a new home going into the 2016 season, but he wouldn’t be able to play this year. It was reported that he is leaning towards returning to his home state of New Jersey and staying in the Big Ten by joining the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

Because of Big Ten rules, Mitchell would have to sit out the 2016 season and would lose a year of eligibility. He would certainly be a huge addition to Chris Ash’s club and could even be a replacement for Leonte Carroo, who left for the NFL earlier this year.

If he ends up going to Rutgers, it will be interesting to see them and the Wolverines meet up on Saturday, Oct. 8.
