Another Michigan Football RB Enters Transfer Portal

The Wolverines had their second running back enter the transfer portal.

Michigan hasn’t had a high volume of transfers into the transfer portal as many other institutions have. The Wolverines have managed to keep their squad together going into the College Football Playoffs thus far.

Running back CJ Stokes is the only scholarship athlete from Michigan listed in the transfer portal thus far. Sam Staruch, the walk-on, has also accessed the gateway.

However, the Wolverines now have an additional means of accessing the transfer portal.

Run back with abandon. Leon Franklin said that he would be staying with Michigan for the College Football Playoffs, but he would be using the transfer portal.

Franklin has been with the Wolverines since 2021 and has played in 29 games at Michigan. In 2021, he had eight carries for 33 yards. In 2022, he carried the ball four times for nine yards. And in 2023, Franklin had 11 carries for 33 yards and a score. He also had a receiving score in 2022.

The Wolverines are loaded at running back and Michigan is bringing in two more running backs in the 2024 cycle. It’s likely Franklin is looking to go somewhere where he can earn more playing time.

Franklin has two years of eligibility remaining.
