Shallman, from Detroit Catholic Central, said he is thankful for his four years at Michigan.

“These last 4 years have allowed me to grow as a man, and, more importantly, become a Michigan Man,” Shallman wrote. “I can’t say thank you enough to all the professors, coaches, and friends that have made, and continue to make, my experience at the University of Michigan nothing short of amazing.”

Shallman is the fourth Michigan player who is pursuing a graduate transfer. Offensive lineman David Dawson is transferring to Iowa State, quarterback Shane Morris is exploring his college options, and long-snapper Scott Sypniewski lists in his Twitter profile that he is pursuing a grad transfer for this season.
