Michigan senior quarterback Shane Morris announced in a statement on Monday that he will be leaving the Wolverines as a graduate transfer to finish out his college career.
The former four-star recruit announced he will seek an opportunity to finish his career as a starter, after serving as a backup on Jim Harbaugh’s squad.
“This decision was not easy due to my love for the University of Michigan and all that it is,” Morris wrote in a lengthy statement released on Tiwtter. “Thanking certain individuals would surely mean that I leave someone out but I want everyone that has impacted me at the university to know I am extremely grateful.
“I could not have asked of anything more from the people of the University of MIchigan and I will forever be a Michigan man. Thank you to everyone that has supported me along the way. I love my Michigan family. Go Blue!”
