Michigan linebacker Marell Evans not expected to return after transfer problems derailed season
LIVONIA -- Michigan football coach Brady Hoke said at the team's annual bust Monday that he does not expect linebacker Marell Evans to return next year.
Evans began his career at Michigan before transferring to Hampton. He returned to the Wolverines this year and expected to be eligible, but never was cleared to play.
Hoke expressed interest earlier this year in petitioning the NCAA for a sixth year for Evans, but that no longer appears to be the case.
Michigan is expected to return every linebacker who contributed significant playing time this year, so Evans' loss will not hurt the depth there.
