Michigan QB Shane Morris Officially Announces Transfer

Former 5-star quarterback Shane Morris has announced he is leaving the Michigan Wolverines. He’ll be eligible to play next season as a graduate transfer.

Shane Morris never got his chance to lead the Michigan offense full-time, and he’s decided to seek an opportunity for playing time elsewhere.

Morris announced Monday on Twitter that he’s decided to transfer for his redshirt senior season. He’ll be eligible to play immediately for a different school next season as a graduate transfer.

There were reports early last month that Morris would leave Michigan.

“After many prayers and talks with my family and loved ones I have decided to graduate transfer and play my 5th year of college football at another university,” Morris wrote. “This decision was not easy due to my love for the University of Michigan and all that it is.

“… I will forever be a Michigan man. Thank you to everyone that has supported me along the way.”

Morris entered Michigan with high expectations as a five-star recruit when Brady Hoke still was the head coach of the Wolverines. He started one game as a freshman, but he could never win the full-time job.

Morris was involved in a three-way battle for the starting job with Iowa graduate transfer Jake Rudock and Wilton Speight prior to the 2015 season. Coach Jim Harbaugh went with Rudock as the starter and named Morris the backup. But over the next couple weeks, Harbaugh said Speight earned the backup job in practice, and Morris ended up redshirting.

Speight won the starting job this season over Morris and John O’Korn. Morris attempted five passes in three games this season and finishes his Michigan career 47-for-92 with no touchdowns and five interceptions.
