Michigan is losing starting center Graham Glasgow after the Citrus Bowl and may be going the graduate transfer route to replace him.

Texas center Jake Raulerson on Tuesday tweeted he plans his first official visit on Jan. 15. Last week Wolverine247 reported that Michigan offensive coordinator Tim Drevno had offered Raulerson a scholarship.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh was asked after his radio show Tuesday night if he will take and graduate transfers for next season. Quarterback Jake Rudock, punter Blake O'Neil and defensive back Wayne Lyons were graduate transfers brought in by Harbaugh.

"Anything's possible," Harbaugh said Tuesday.

Raulerson will graduate from Texas' business school in May and will have two years of eligibility remaining. He will be able to play immediately.
