Michigan Wolverines QB Joe Milton Enters NCAA Transfer Portal

Michigan quarterback Joe Milton entered his name on the transfer portal Thursday. The third-year quarterback will have three years of eligibility remaining, as the NCAA has awarded an additional year of eligibility and Milton has yet to wear his red jersey season.

Milton was an ESPN 300 prospect in the 2018 class, described as raw and needing time to develop, and he played in four games in his first season.

After playing in four games in 2019, Milton was named a starter to open the 2020 season. He helped lead Michigan to a victory against Minnesota in Game 1, completing 15 of 22 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown.

He threw for 644 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the next two games, both losses, against Michigan State and Indiana. He was eventually replaced by Cade McNamara, who started the last two games of the season for Michigan.

Michigan made changes to its coaching staff this offseason that would affect the position, parting ways with quarterbacks coach Ben McDaniels. Head coach Jim Harbaugh now plans to work with quarterbacks and also added running backs coach Mike Hart and Ron Bellamy to coach wide receivers.

The Wolverines will still have McNamara on the roster and added ESPN 300 quarterback JJ McCarthy in this 2021 cycle. McCarthy is the 25th pick overall and the No. 2 double threat quarterback.

Milton is transferring as a graduate transfer and will be immediately eligible in the program of his choice.
