The Michigan Wolverines have lost a player to the transfer portal ahead of spring football, as linebacker Devin Gil announced his decision on Tuesday evening. Gil will be entering his fifth season of college and will be eligible to play immediately wherever he goes as a graduate transfer.

Gil, who appeared in 40 games as a Wolverine and made 14 starts, was a three-star prospect coming out of high school in the Class of 2016. He was part of a trio of players from Flanagan High School in Hollywood, Florida that included linebacker Devin Bush and safety Josh Metellus.

Gil’s decision to transfer now puts Michigan at 87 scholarship players heading into spring football, which is two over the limit for the 2020 season. The other outside linebackers left on the roster are redshirt sophomore Mike Barrett, redshirt freshmen Anthony Solomon and Joey Velazquez and an incoming trio of true freshman in Osman Savage, Nikhai Hill-Green and William Mohan.
