The Toledo native played 101 total games, starting 35 of those for the Wolverines the past three seasons. This past season, Donnal played in the rotation as the seventh player averaging 3.9 points and two rebounds per game.
While he has seen playing time and averaged over 12 minutes per game, it was rumored he was considering transferring after the team moved him from redshirt sophomore to junior and eliminated that status.
While many, including myself, may not be surprised about this news due to his senior day participation, he had a fifth-year of eligibility and could come back next year to finish his college career with Michigan.
It is not yet known where he will transfer, but he could make a quick impact with the right fit and play immediately. He was a four-star recruit and top 100 player in the 2013 class, with a career average of 5.1 points and 2.6 rebounds per game while at Michigan.
We wish him the best of luck whereever he goes next year.
