Michigan Football: Wilton Speight Set To Transfer

The Michigan football program will be losing some depth under center.
On Sunday, Wolverines quarterback Wilton Speight announced that he will be transferring from Ann Arbor. Speight, a fifth-year senior, will be eligible to play immediately in 2018.
Last season, Speight started in 12 games and once again entered this year as the starter. Unfortunately, on Sept. 23, Speight suffered a serious back injury– three fractured vertebrae — in a win over Purdue. He finished the season with just 581 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.
The signal-caller announced his decision on social media.
“I don’t know where next will be, and I’ll use these next four weeks to figure that out,” Speight wrote. “I’m excited to keep pursuing my dreams in a new jersey, but will forever root for the boys wearing the winged helmet.
Speight’s full statement can be read below:
