Michigan loses pair of players to transfer

BY Marcus Hartman • January 12, 2016

News came Tuesday that two Michigan players will finish their football careers somewhere else. 

Neither Ross Taylor-Douglas or Terry Richardson were starters for the Wolverines in 2015. 

In an announcement via Twitter, Ross Taylor-Douglas said he is in line to graduate in May and sought his release. 

He signed with Michigan in 2013 as a three-star defensive back recruit from Avon, Ohio, and has two years of eligibility remaining. He played 15 games at Michigan, including five last season as a reserve running back.  

Richardson wrote on Instagram he is also scheduled to graduate in May and that while his educational experience has been satisfactory the same cannot be said of his Wolverines football career. 

"Unfortunately it has not worked out in allowing me to achieve my personal goals of getting on the field which has led me to seek my released from my scholarship to allow me to seek a new university to play my last year of eligibility while starting my (sic) Masters Degree," Richardson wrote. 

Richardson was a four-star recruit at Detroit Cass Tech when he signed in 2012. 

He played 15 games for the Wolverines, including six as a true freshman before redshirting in 2013. He appeared in one game in 2015 and eight in '14. 

Scout.com first reported the departures of both players.
