Ross Taylor-Douglas, Terry Richardson announce transfer from Michigan

Two Michigan Wolverines announced their intentions to transfer via social media on Tuesday.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Ross Taylor-Douglas and Terry Richardson both announced on Tuesday that they will transfer from Michigan to seek a grand transfer opportunity elsewhere.

Douglas, a reserve running back, was bounced around from corner back to running back during his time with the Wolverines. He saw game action in six games last season and compiled 18 yards. Graduating as a junior, Douglas will have two years left of eligibility.


Richardson, a four-year reserve corner, did not see much playing time throughout his career. He will become a graduate transfer with one year of eligiblity remaining.

He was a four-star cornerback out of Detroit's Cass Tech high school.

"When I committed to Michigan out of high school, I was convicted to be part of this great football tradition while obtaining a first class education," Richardson said on social media. "My experience here as a student athlete has exceeded my expectations and I'm proud to know I will obtain my degree this upcoming May. Unfortunately it has not worked out in allowing me to achieve my personal goals of getting on the field which has led me to seek my release from my scholarship to allow me to seek a new university to play my last year of eligibility while starting my Masters Degree. I want to thank my teammates, our coaches on Coach Harbaugh and Coach Hoke's staff and to the greatest fans in college football. Thank you for all the fantastic experiences. I'll never forget this part of my life as I'm sure I'll look back many years from now and look at these past four years and the greatest experiences of my life.

While I do not know where I am headed, I am very excited to start the next phase of my life."
