Derrick Green, a former Michigan running back, will transfer to play for TCU, according to Jeremy Clark of 247Sports.

With senior De’Veon Smith leading the run game and Kareem Walker, the top ranked running back from the 2016 class, in the mix, Michigan would not have found much playing time for Green at the Big House.

The 5-foot-11, 240-pound running back played in 25 games and started seven games in his three years with the Maize and Blue. He carried the ball 212 times for 898 yards and seven touchdowns. Through the air, Green caught three passes for 33 yards. The only injury abstained by Green was a broken collarbone that ended his 2014 season.

Green committed to Michigan on January 26, 2013. He was the No. 27 overall player in his class, according to 247Sports. Also, he was ranked as the third best player in the state of Virginia.

After Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh was hired, Green picked up just 47 carries for 157 yards and sat out the final four games of the season.

Green will be able to play this season for TCU because he is a graduate student.
