With 3 recruiting services and many reporters covering the Wolverines, it's hard to be surprised by any development.   This news was a surprise as Miami OT grad transfer Sunny Odogwu visited Michigan this week for two days and left on Wednesday. 

Odogwu is 6-foot-8 and 325-pounds OT who announced he was transferring from Miami less then two weeks ago.  He started 14 games at right tackle over three seasons at Miami.   He is eligible to play right away and will only have 1 year of eligibility left.   He is flying to see Jedd Fisch at UCLA today.

“Sunny and I had a good conversation, and he informed me that he feels his best opportunity to get the most playing time would be at another school,” Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt said in a statement. “Sunny has been a great teammate and leader for this program, and we will miss him

Per NBC:

Odogwu is coming off surgery for a right knee injury late last season. After starting 12 games for the Hurricanes, Odogwu was forced to miss Miami’s bowl game and later was limited in spring practice drills. Odogwu had to undergo surgery for a right knee injury late in the 2015 season as well.

If he is healthy, I think he is a take for Michigan, though it sounds like he is going to have a number of options.   If he was limited in Spring Drills I wonder how healthy he really is?
