QB Tate Forcier announced two weeks ago via Twitter his intention to leave the Michigan Wolverines and transfer to another school. On Jan. 20, he wrote via Twitter:
I really wanted to stay. I was not giving up on Michigan, but in the end, it was made clear they had given up on me.
Forcier started as a freshman in 2009 before QB Denard Robinson took his spot in 2010. He's said he's leaving before but it appears this time it's serious. He was ruled ineligible for the Gator Bowl.
ESPN's Joe Schad reports Forcier has five schools on his short list for potential transfer options including Kansas State, Washington, Arizona, Miami and Montana. He expects to start visiting schools as early as Monday and Schad says he'll probably do Kansas State or Miami first.
Kansas State's quarterback situation isn't exactly ideal right now so the opportunity to play could be there with the Wildcats. It's unclear if he has a front-runner at this point.
Forcier threw for 2,647 yards, 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 20 career games.
