Quintel Kent was gearing up for his first season of college football with the Michigan Wolverines, but it has come to an end before it ever really started as the program continues to roll through fall camp.
The freshman wide receiver posted late Sunday that due to “unfortunate medical findings,” he will not be able to play this year. Below is the full statement from his Twitter account.
Michigan will still honor his scholarship and says that they will provide whatever support is needed to him moving forward. No other information has been made available about his medical status or what the ailment is.
Kent, a three-star wide receiver in the Class of 2019 out of Lakewood, Ohio, was not expected to make much of an impact, if any this upcoming year. Depth at the position is not much of a question as of now with Donovan Peoples-Jones, Tarik Black and Nico Collins set at the top of the depth chart with Ronnie Bell and true freshman Mike Sainristil also expected to make contributions. Michigan brought in three other wideouts in the 2019 class in Giles Jackson, Cornelius Johnson and George Johnson III.
