This young man’s career is sadly over before it had the chance to begin

NCAA Football: Michigan Spring Game Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Alas, the Fourth of July holiday is not all smiles for the Michigan Football family. Earlier this afternoon, Freshman Corey Malone-Hatcher announced on Twitter that he was taking a medical disqualification and retiring from the game of football.

Hatcher, one of Michigan’s 2017 recruiting class, enrolled early in January. In his statement, CMH said that his decision was a result of the achilles injury he sustained in high school. Despite extensive rehab, Hatcher was unable to sufficiently recover from the tear and subsequent surgery. He will still receive his scholarship and will stay at the University to pursue academics.
