Already down one tight end, Jake Butt, from last season, it appears Michigan is about to take another blow to its depth chart at that position.
Sophomore Devin Asiasi is seeking a transfer from the Wolverines to a school on the West Coast, per a report from Isaiah Hole of 247 Sports. Asiasi is a native of San Mateo, Calif., so this would be a move closer to home.
Asiasi played in all 12 regular-season games as well as the Orange Bowl last season, posting two receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown. Most of his value doesn’t show up in the stats though, as he was more known as a blocking tight end.
With Butt graduated and on his way to the NFL, Asiasi was expected to compete for major playing time at tight end with senior Ian Bunting, junior Tyrone Wheatley Jr. and junior Zach Gentry. Asiasi came to the Wolverines last season as a consensus 4-star tight end and the No. 3 tight end in the class of 2016, per the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.
