Michigan WR Maurice Ways announces plan to transfer

Yet another Michigan player will seek a transfer this offseason, as wide receiver Maurice Ways announced Wednesday on Instagram he intends to take a graduate transfer.

Ways joins quarterbacks Wilton Speight and Alex Malzone as players who have announced they intend to leave the Wolverines this season. Ways had plenty of people to thank in his post, including both Brady Hoke and Jim Harbaugh

Thank you Coach Hoke & staff for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to put on the Winged Helmet. -Thank you Coach Harbough (sic) & staff for teaching me the game of football and pushing me past my limits everyday to achieve greatness.

Ways finishes his Michigan career with eight catches for 71 yards. Originally a 3-star recruit that committed to Hoke, he played all three of his seasons under Harbaugh. As a grad transfer, he should be immediately eligible to play whichever school he selects as his next destination.

Dear Michigan, I stepped onto campus in 2014 as a young 18 year old kid, anxious to play and filled with excitement. Now, 4 years later.. I’m leaving as a 21 year old man who has matured and learned so much about himself. -Thank you Coach Hoke & staff for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to put on the Winged Helmet. -Thank you Coach Harbough & staff for teaching me the game of football and pushing me past my limits everyday to achieve greatness. -To my teammates and WR Crew.. love y’all boys man! #CrewThick forever! -Lastly to the fans! Thank you!! I will miss running out of the tunnel and hitting the banner as “Hail to The Victors” plays while 100,000+ are screaming and yelling “Go Blue”. This has been an unforgettable 4 years and I’m excited for the blessings God has in store for me at my next school for my 5th year. THANK YOU MICHIGAN! The BIG HOUSE will forever be Ho〽️e! Love! Moe Ways 85
