Je'Ron Stokes Leaves Michigan

Sadly, another transfer occurred today. The Detroit Free Press and The Wolverine just reported that junior wide receiver Je'Ron Stokes has opted to transfer from the football program. He clearly was not a starting wide receiver, but the loss of more depth at the wide receiver position could be devastating to the team considering Darryl Stonum's suspension and that two of the current "starters" are seniors.

Stokes only had 1 catch in 2010 for 11 yards and 2 catches in 2009 for 16 yards. This demonstrates that he was far from being the #1 target at Michigan and this could have been a significant portion of his decision.

His stats may not have been great, but he was originally rated as a 4 star recruit by Rivals and seemed to be developing relatively well, but it appears that he did not feel comfortable with the team. Specifics have not been released, but we do know his place on the depth chart was likely a factor.

We can only wish him the best and hope that other players can step up to fill the void.
