Michigan football was unusually aggressive in the NCAA transfer portal this offseason,
bringing in seven players from other schools. Usually, the Wolverines bring in a handful,
but this cycle, the maize and blue are filling numerous holes across the team.
From offensive line (LaDarius Henderson, Drake Nugent, and Myles Hinton), tight end (AJ Barner), quarterback (Jack Tuttle),
edge rusher (Josaiah Stewart), and linebacker (Ernest Hausmann), Michigan brought in seven players who could all make an instant impact.
ESPN put together a list of the top 75 transfers in 2023, and four Wolverines made the cut — though we certainly think there are two omissions from the list with likely starters.
Once listed by 247Sports as the top-ranked transfer in the portal,
before Deion Sanders’ exodus from Jackson State saw top-flight recruits join him, if not a starter in Ann Arbor,
Hausmann will be in heavy rotation and won’t have to bear the brunt of being a sole playmaker given those who play around him.
