Shallman, in a note shared on Jan. 19, announced he would be leaving the Wolverines program to pursue a graduate transfer. Shallman, who’s from Hartland, Mich., played in 11 games while at Michigan. He moved from running back to linebacker before this past season. While at running back, Shallman picked up 14 yards on four attempts.
“These last 3 years have allowed me to grow as a man, and, more importantly, become a Michigan Man,” Shallman wrote last month when he announced his intentions to transfer.
