Michigan transfer announces next destination
New Rutgers coach Chris Ash got some good news over the weekend when former Michigan player Ross Taylor-Douglas announced he will be a Scarlet Knight next season.
I am proud to announce I have committed to Rutgers University to play my final two years of football. Let's rock #ChopNation ??— Ross Douglas (@DougieXFresh29_) January 30, 2016
Taylor-Douglas was a three-star recruit when he signed with Michigan in 2013. He played 15 games for the Wolverines and has two years of eligibility.
When he announced his plan to transfer Taylor-Douglas said he is on pace to graduate in May, meaning he could play right away in Piscataway.
"Coming in as an older defensive back, one of the oldest guys on the team, they expect me to do big things for the program and be a leader," said Taylor-Douglas, who will enroll in May. "So I've just got to get up on my grind and make that happen for the team so I can help them win."
The Scarlet Knights defensive backs struggled last season, but their new head coach was credited with turning around a disappointing secondary at Ohio State.
