Michigan football defender selects transfer portal destination

The lure of Coach Prime is big, so big that a former Michigan football edge rusher is heading to Boulder.

After a couple of years as a starter at defensive end, Taylor Upshaw never quite rose up to the level of his predecessors.

 In 2021, his position was usurped by David Ojabo,

who ended up being a second-round pick in the 2022 draft,

and while Upshaw got off to a slow start, he really came on late in the 2022 season.

However, he still opted to enter the NCAA transfer portal, seeking a fresh start elsewhere.

And on Saturday night, Upshaw made the late announcement that he’s joining the new-look Colorado Buffaloes.
