Former Auburn DB Moncrief apparently free to talk to Michigan



UPDATE: Former Auburn safety Derrick Moncrief apparently has been granted a release to Michigan.

Sam Webb however points out that this doesn’t mean Moncrief will actually transfer to the Wolverines. Moncrief will more than likely talk to Michigan coaches as a potential prospect for the team.

Moncrief played in 13 games for the Tigers last season recording 27 tackles in the process. He’s reportedly seeking a transfer after Will Muschamp moved him to a  linebacker/nickel role.


So can Derrick Moncrief transfer to Michigan or not?

I guess at this point it depends who you ask.

If you’re asking the former Auburn safety, Moncrief (via Sam Webb of GoBlueWolverines) says there have been limits placed on him after he decided to transfer away from the Tigers last week.

So what’s the other side of the spectrum saying? Auburn beat reporter Brandon Marcello says Moncreif hasn’t been blocked from transferring to Ann Arbor and that the restrictions are placed only within the SEC, Clemson and Louisville.

So what gives? Who knows what any actual hold up was about but given the nature of college sports in today’s landscape it was probably all about politics. Plus Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh hasn’t been exactly rubbing his coaching counterparts the right way during these satellite camps. For instance Harbaugh recently attended a satellite camp at Prattville High School in Alabama. SEC and ACC head coaches would be unable to do this at a school up north given they can only attend these camps at the very most 50 miles outside of their respective campuses.
