Report: Derrick Green granted transfer release from Michigan

A busy week of attrition continues for Michigan as Derrick Green has been granted his transfer release according to a report from NBC Sports.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- A busy week of attrition continues for the Michigan football program.

According to a report by NBCSports.com, U-M running back Derrick Green will transfer from the program after weeks of speculation surrounding his status and absence from the football field. Green saw sparse playing time during the 2015 season, which Jim Harbaugh characterized as an "internal matter" that kept him from seeing the field, he finished the season with 47 carries and 157 yards.

He was the number one running back in the nation coming out of high school according to the Scout.com 2013 rankings and didn't make much of an impact until the 2014 season where he tallied 471 yards rushing with three touchdowns before breaking his collarbone and missing the rest of the season.

According to the report, U-M denied to comment on Green's status. He is also expected to stay at the school until his graduation in the spring, becoming a graduate transfer that is eligible to play immediately.

He would have one season of availability left and a redshirt still intact.

This is a developing story.
