According to SEC Network analyst Cole Cubelic, Michigan quarterback Brandon Peters has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

And according to Nick Baumgardner from the Free Press, Peters will be a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining.

During his time in Ann Arbor, Peters played in 10 games, passing for 680 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions.

He made his debut at the Big House against Rutgers in 2017, relieving John O’Korn in the middle of the game. He then started every game up until he suffered a nasty concussion against Wisconsin, forcing him to miss the game against Ohio State. He was able to come back and play in the bowl game against South Carolina.

Last season, he was passed on the depth chart by Shea Patterson (pretty much immediately), Dylan McCaffrey (probably almost immediately), and true freshman Joe Milton. He went 1-for-2 for eight yards and one interception in 2018.

The writing was on the wall for Peters before the 2018 season even began especially with the offensive changes and the younger quarterbacks passing him up. And once it was announced Gattis was coming to Ann Arbor, as well as an entirely new offense, it was really only a matter of time before Peters left.

We wish Peters nothing but the best moving forward, and hopefully he is able to land on his feet in an offense that can fit to his strengths.
