While the overall numbers didn’t hold — especially considering the firestorm in Boulder with Colorado hiring Deion Sanders —
Michigan football had the best early returns in the transfer portal.
The first domino to fall was that of former Nebraska linebacker Ernest Hausmann, entering his second year in college football,
but thought to be the best linebacker available in the transfer portal.
He joins a group with no attrition, with Junior Colson, Michael Barrett, Jimmy Rolder, Kalel Mullings, and even Nikhai Hill-Green returning.
As far as how he got to Michigan, Hausmann told Jon Jansen on the In The Trenches podcast that with Scott Frost being fired and ,
Mickey Joseph being let go for Matt Rhule, it appeared to be the perfect time for a change of scenery.
