Weber State punter Blake O'Neill, a transfer candidate, will visit Michigan this week, he wrote on Twitter. O'Neill is a graduate student and could be eligible to play at Michigan immediately.

O'Neill, 6-2 and 215 pounds, is from Melbourne, Austrailia, and has one year of college eligibility remaining.

"Stoked to be jumping on a plane to the US tomorrow for an official visit to U-M," he wrote.

In his only season at Weber State in 2014, he punted 62 times for 2,737 yards and an average of 44.1 yards. His longest punt was 74 yards and he had 18 punts of 50 or more yards, with 25 inside the 20-yard line.

Michigan's punter from last season, Will Hagerup, has graduated.
