The Michigan Wolverines will be without running back/defensive back Ross Taylor-Douglas, as well as defensive back Terry Richardson next season.

The Taylor-Douglas departure was first reported by 247 Sports, and Scout.com. He will have two years of eligibility left according to Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press.

Richardson will only have one year of eligibility remaining.

Both Richardson and Taylor-Douglas were reserves for the Wolverines this past season.

Both players will be able to play for their new teams right away because both players will have degree's from the University of Michigan.

It is no surprise to see a running back decide to transfer. Taylor-Douglass did not catch on much in Jim Harbaugh's new offense, and with Drake Johnson, DeVeon Smith, Ty Isaac, and Karan Higdon returning as well as Kareem Walker and Kingston Davis coming to Ann Arbor the position is a bit jammed, assuming Derrick Green also decides to transfer.

Taylor-Douglas posted this photo on Twitter about his decision saying in the Tweet "business never personal, excited for my next phase of my life."
