Ian Bunting announced Tuesday night that he is pursuing a grad transfer.
The fifth-year senior tight end was once seen as the heir apparent to Jake Butt. Now, he’ll finish his college career elsewhere.
“This has been a very difficult decision, but I have decided to forgo my 5th year at the University of Michigan in order to play football and earn a graduate degree elsewhere,” Bunting wrote on Instagram. “I have obtained my release. … This place will always be a special one for me and it has been the opportunity of a lifetime.”
