Notebook: U-M football releases fall roster

Michigan football released its fall rosters on Thursday with additions and one subtraction.

With the first practice of fall camp is set to begin on Friday for Michigan football, the official fall rosters have been released as well.

Here are the details and newsworthy notes from the roster release.

Dennis Norfleet’s absence

With his status on the team heavily questioned, it appears the fate for senior kick returner/wide receiver and cornerback Dennis Norfleet has been answered for the time being.

Norfleet’s name does not appear on the fall roster in any capacity, whether this means he is no longer with the program remains to be seen. But many have said that Norfleet must earn his way onto the team. Time will tell about his status officially.
