According to The Michigan Insider’s Sam Webb, Berkley Edwards will be heading to Michigan as a graduate transfer. He will walk on to the team, according to Webb.

If Berkley’s last name sounds familiar, that’s because it should. Berkley is the little brother of former Wolverine star wide receiver Braylon Edwards.

Berkley began his career at the University of Minnesota. After redshirting in 2013, he played 12 games his redshirt freshman season and just one game his sophomore season.

He then transferred to Central Michigan in 2016 and sat out due to NCAA transfer rules. He played nine games for the Chippewas in 2017, rushing for just 15 yards on six carries and zero touchdowns. He also had kick return duties, returning 20 kicks for 336 yards.

This is purely a depth/legacy move for the Wolverines. Berkley’s brother and father both played for Michigan, so it only seems fitting he ends his collegiate career wearing the winged helmet.

Odds are he will mainly be used on special teams, if at all, and will likely not see the field as a running back, barring injuries to pretty much everybody.

Welcome to the family, Berkley.
