ANN ARBOR -- After picking up two quarterbacks on National Signing Day, the stable for Michigan will have to get a little bit larger on Thursday.
Former University of Houston junior quarterback John O'Korn tweeted on Thursday that he will be transferring to Michigan. UH granted his release from the program on January, 17. A Michigan official told Maize n Brew that there was nothing new to report at this time regarding the O'Korn situation.
According to NCAA regulations, O'Korn will have to sit out the 2015 season due to transfer rules. He will return to the team as a redshirt junior with two seasons of eligibility left.
The six-foot-four, 220-pound quarterback from Fort Lauderdale, Fl. was a three-star recruiting coming out high school. During his two years in Houston, O'Korn saw his playing time dip in 2014 after a successful 2013 season statistically.
He finished 2014 appearing in seven games throwing for 951-yards and six touchdowns. In 2013, he played in all 13 games that season and finished with 3117-yards and 28 touchdowns, only throwing 10 interceptions.
