So all the Buckeye fans got it wrong, huh? Color me shocked that the mass exodus teased on social media by many Michigan football rivals didn't happen.

Even though we were told that Mason Graham, Kenneth Grant, Colston Loveland, and Will Johnson would be leaving for the SEC or Ohio State, they all stayed. The spring transfer window has closed. There is one more day for graudate transfers but Michigan football survived without a single returning starter exiting the program, even following the departure of Jim Harbaugh to the NFL.

That says a lot about Sherrone Moore. The Michigan Wolverines new head coach has built a tremendous staff, but he did an even better job with player retention. Michigan football fans can also start to feel better about the NIL situation. Things need to get better, but the Wolverines have certainly made progress.

Now, it's time to add to the roster and make a run at a fourth consecutive Big Ten championship.

Michigan football projected to land transfer wide receiver

Not long ago, the Michigan Wolverines got a crystal ball projection for Amorion Walker, the former Michigan football cornerback/wideout. He's going to return to Ann Arbor, to play wide receiver. At least that's what the experts are predicting.

On Tuesday, another wideout from the portal, C.J. Charleston, from Youngstown State, has also been projected to land with the Michigan Wolverines. He's 6-foot and caught 33 passes last season for 503 yards and four touchdowns. He's got one season left and Sam Webb of The Michigan Insider has his crystal ball on the Wolverines.

Johnell Davis to Arkansas

In a last bit of news, the Michigan Wolverines are out of the running for former FAU guard Johnell Davis. He committed to Arkansas on Tuesday and surely got a massive NIL deal. Some reported that he didn't come to Michigan due to admissions. I have a feeling it was about NIL.


The Wolverines have made progress, but there is still work to do and Johnell Davis is a reminder of that, although Dusty May has still built an NCAA tournament team in my opinion.
