The graduate transfer list continues to grow with the departure of TE Keith Heitzman.
Per his Instagram:
the past few years have been an unforgettable journey full of ever lasting memories, both exciting and saddening. i have experienced the spoils of winning and the heartbreak of losing. i have always blamed my struggles on external factors and never realized that all of this was part of the process of becoming a michigan man. it has been the most challenging yet rewarding 4 years of my life and for that i will be forever grateful. however, this moment right now has manifested itself into the toughest experience as of yet. i have signed my release form allowing me to talk with other schools for the potential to transfer. as of right now i will leave this great institution in the spring with a degree in hand and friendships that will last a lifetime. i have to make the best possible decision for me, therefore, i feel like i need to explore my options. i have to thank all the fans for their continued support through the turbulent times over these past few years and promise that michigan is destined for greatness in the future. #forevergoblueAgain, like Bellomy and Hayes, nothing but love and affection for Michigan and their former teammates, but also a harsh realization that the grass is likely to be greener somewhere else for them personally. The former SDE turned tight end spent much of the 2014 season on the bench.
With Butt and Williams back and Bunting and Hill filling out the depth chart at TE, playing time was probably nil at best. Will this be the last transfer for Michigan this offseason? We'll see.
Best of luck to Keith wherever he ends up.
