After kicker Andrew David transferred to TCU and freshman receiver Ahmir Mitchell left the team, Michigan decided to give scholarships to three walk-ons.
Quarterback Garrett Moores has received a scholarship. Moores is a fourth year athlete from Detroit Catholic Central and is the best place holder in college football, according to quarterback Shane Morris.
