Former Michigan wide receiver Eddie McDoom is officially enrolled at University of South Florida.

The news was first reported by Brandon Justice of thewolverineslounge.com, and later confirmed by Aaron McMann of MLive who contacted a USF spokesperson

McDoom, who left the program earlier this month, appeared in 25 total games, catching 16 passes for 140-yards and running for 203-yards.

NCAA rules require him to sit out a year in academic residency, but he can still partake in practice. He will have two years of eligibility after the probationary year.

The Florida native, listed at 6-foot and 181-pounds, played prep ball at West Orange High School.

USF is coming off a 10-2 season and a win in the Birmingham Bowl. Head coach Charlie Strong, entering his second season in the AAC, will have plenty of chances to utilize McDoom’s skills.

McDoom becomes the fourth receiver to leave Michigan this offseason, after the 2017 season. Other transfers include, Drake Harris, Kekoa Crawford, Ian Bunting, Kareem Walker and Wilton Speight.
