Redshirt freshman Steven Threet will release a personal statement today, according to his father, Jewel Threet.

The Michigan Daily contacted the Threet residence in Adrian last night. When asked about the possibility of Threet releasing a statement announcing his transfer from the Michigan football team, his father Jewel said, “He’s going to have a comment tomorrow, yeah.”

Jewel Threet declined further comment.

An Athletic Department spokesperson also declined to comment about the statement.

The Daily’s calls to Steven Threet’s cell phone last night were not returned.

The Wolverines’ starter in 8-of-12 games last year, Threet transferred from Georgia Tech prior to the 2007 season. He finished last season 102-of-200 for 1,105 yards, nine touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Michigan signed two quarterbacks, Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson, on National Signing Day on Feb. 5, 2009. Forcier, a four-star recruit according to Rivals.com, enrolled early in January and will practice with the team in March’s spring practices.

The expected statement comes amid rumors of Threet’s potential transfer.
