Perhaps one of the worst-kept secrets surrounding the Michigan football program has finally become official on Monday.
The Michigan football program announced the addition of former Stanford defensive back Wayne Lyons as a graduate transfer. According to NCAA rules, Lyons will be eligible to play immediately for his final year of eligibility.
"We are excited about the addition of Wayne Lyons as a postgraduate student and defensive back on our football team," secondary coach Mike Zordich said in a statement. "He brings great experience and ability to our secondary and special teams units. In addition, Wayne is a super individual who will achieve great things both on the field and in his future career."
The six-foot-one, 193-pound defensive back appeared in 43 games for the Cardinal and recorded 128 tackles, three interceptions and three forced fumbles.
Lyons is the son of Gwendolyn Bush, who was hired by Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh as director of player development.
