Former Michigan safety Carvin Johnson has transferred to Hampton University, according to The Daily Press in Newport News, Va.
Johnson left the Wolverines on Nov. 1, becoming the sixth and most recent departure since the hiring of coach Brady Hoke 12 months ago. The sophomore played in all eight games before his exit, recording 14 tackles and seeing action on special teams.
He now joins the FCS-member Pirates, the former team of Michigan linebacker Marrell Evans.
Johnson joins a trend of former Michigan players finding homes outside the BCS conferences.
Offensive lineman Tony Posada has left football all together.
The only exception is freshman linebacker Kellen Jones, who left the Wolverines in late summer. He joined Oklahoma in time to play this past season as a freshman, recording 10 tackles in 12 games.
No reason for any of the departures has been provided by Michigan. A message left for Johnson seeking comment has not been returned.
