Redshirt freshman running back Kurt Taylor has departed the program to pursue a transfer, team spokesman Dave Ablauf confirmed Tuesday.

The 5-foot-8, 194-pounder came to Michigan as a 3-star prospect out of Covington, Ga. He had yet to see game action for the Wolverines in his two-year career.

”Kurt decided to leave the team and pursue a transfer,” Ablauf told Nick Baumgardner of the Detroit Free Press.

247Sports rated Taylor the No. 50 running back in the 2017 class. He entered the season behind starter Karan Higdon, as well as primary backups Chris Evans and Tru Wilson.

Michigan second-year back O’Maury Samuels and true freshman Christian Turner have passed him on the depth chart, seeing garbage time carries against Western Michigan and Nebraska.
