Freshman wide receiver Ahmir Mitchell will be transferring from Michigan, he announced Wednesday afternoon on Twitter.
“It’s been all love from the fans, community, and the people of Michigan,” Mitchell said in a statement on his Twitter account. I’ve made bonds and friendships with people here that will last a lifetime. I love what U of M had to offer me, but what is best for me and my family comes first.
Therefore, I will like to announce that I am hereby reopening my recruitment to all universities and football programs.”
Mitchell was a four-star prospect and the ninth-ranked athlete in the 2016 class, per the 247 Composite. He was an early enrollee and participated in spring football with the program.
He was noticeably absent from the team photo prior to the start of camp and Jim Harbaugh revealed that he was suspended indefinitely last week.
