In January, former Michigan wide receiver Freddy Canteen announced that he would pursue a graduate transfer. Canteen, who was left off Michigan’s 2016 season roster, visited Notre Dame this weekend and committed to finish his career in South Bend.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound wide receiver played in six games in 2014 and made five receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown. In the 2015 season, he made one reception. Canteen did not make an appearance during the 2017 season due to multiple shoulder surgeries.

In 2014, Canteen was recruited by Michigan from Eastern Christian High School (MD). He was the 298th ranked player in the class, according to 247Sports. He was ranked as the 41st wide receiver and the No. 4 player in the state of Maryland.

Due to the fact that Canteen is graduating from Michigan in May, he will get to leave and play immediately with a different program. Canteen will have two years of eligibility remaining after playing just two seasons for the Wolverines.
