Senior defensive back Terry Richardson has been granted his release from Michigan Football and will look to play elsewhere as a graduate transfer, according to Scout's Bill Greene.

Richardson gave a statement to ESPN's Tom VanHaaren:

Richardson was a reserve for the Wolverines in the secondary and appeared in only one game this season. He played in eight games in 2014 and six as a freshman on special teams in 2012.

Richardson was a four-star prospect and the 11th-ranked cornerback in the 2012 class coming out of Cass Technical High School in Detroit, Michigan, a popular pipeline for talent to Ann Arbor.

News of his transfer makes him the second player on Tuesday to announce a change in schools. Running back Ross Taylor-Douglas also announced that he will leave Michigan as a graduate transfer earlier in the day.
