By  | 

After four years in Ann Arbor, Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight announced Sunday evening on Instagram that he will transfer for his final season and "keep pursuing my dreams in a new jersey".

Speight has been sidelined since September 23rd, when he fracture three vertabrae against Purdue. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Speight thanked Brady Hoke for "giving a kid with no offers a chance", Jim Harbaugh for "making him a better quarterback", and the fans who "stuck with us through thick and thin."

Since Speight is set to graduate at the end of the semester, he will be eligible for an NCAA graduate transfer waiver, allowing him to play right away at any other FBS school.

In three seasons with Michigan, Speight threw for over 3,192 yards and ten touchdowns.
