Franklin has been a part of the program since 2021, but his career statistics are not very impressive. Franklin had just 75 running yards in 29 games over the course of three years. This has more to do with being behind Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards than it does with Franklin’s play. After learning that two well-known running backs will be joining in the 2024 class, Franklin made the decision to look for playing time elsewhere. For many walk-ons who are trying to make an impression with their little playing time, it is an unhappy reality.

For the Wolverines, everything after this season is quite uncertain. There are two major issues that need to be resolved. The NCAA’s probe into the sign-stealing incident is the first. The 2024 season will be significantly impacted by any punishment the NCAA decides to impose. What will happen to Jim Harbaugh is the other. NFL teams are already contacting to see out how interested they are, and the program will look drastically different if Harbaugh left.
