Kyle Bosch Confirms Transfer From Michigan

Michigan sophomore guard Kyle Bosch confirmed a report he has decided to transfer from the Wolverines' football program in a phone conversation Monday night.

Kyle Bosch has left the Michigan football program.

Late Monday night GoBlueWolverine confirmed an earlier report of Bosch’s decision to transfer out of Ann Arbor, briefly speaking with the sophomore over the phone.

Asked about his reasoning behind the move, the 6-foot-5, 303-pound Bosch didn’t offer up details.

“This decision was all very circumstantial,” Bosch told Scout.

When asked if he’d decided which school he’d be transferring to, Bosch simply stated, “I do not know where I’m transferring to at this time.”

Bosch says he did have a meeting with new Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh prior to coming to this conclusion but didn’t divulge what exactly was discussed among the two of them.

Asked directly if his decision to transfer was his own or out of his hands, Bosch said, “I would say this was my decision.”

Bosch’s career at Michigan started quickly, enrolling early in January of 2013 to appear in five games at left guard, actually starting three as a true freshman.

In his sophomore campaign, Bosch took a step back, appearing as a reserve in Michigan’s season opening win over Appalachian State before ultimately taking a leave of absence from the program.

Then Michigan coach Brady Hoke released a statement on Bosch’s status on Sept. 3.

"Kyle Bosch has taken a leave of absence for an undetermined amount of time for personal reasons," Hoke said in a statement released by the athletic department.

"We ask that his privacy be respected at this time. We wish him the best and look forward to his return.”

During his prep career at St. Francis (Ill.) high school, Bosch was an All-State First Team performer in his junior and senior seasons, arriving at Michigan as a four-star prospect and the No. 3 rated guard in the country, No. 49 overall prospect in America.
