ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Two defensive players and former four-star recruits on the Michigan football roster have announced their intention to transfer.
On Monday, three days after the team’s loss to Georgia in the College Football Playoff, linebacker Anthony Solomon and cornerback Darion Green-Warren entered the transfer portal.
While the pair are the first Wolverines to enter the portal this offseason, they likely won’t be the last. Several players from nearly every team across the country will be on the move due to playing time concerns, scheme fits or coaching changes.
Solomon spent three seasons at Michigan after signing with the class of 2019. He was a four-star out of St. Thomas Aquinas in Florida and the No. 223 overall player in the class, according to 247 Sports.
Solomon appeared in 24 games during his Michigan career, but most of his snaps came on special teams. He was originally recruited to play the VIPER position in Don Brown’s defense, but now, the current scheme isn’t much of a fit.
He finishes his Michigan career with six tackles.
Green-Warren signed with Michigan as a four-star cornerback in 2020. He was the No. 190 player overall and the No. 14 cornerback in the class.
In two seasons, Green-Warren didn’t see game action for the Wolverines.
