Rumors have emerged that Michigan DT Aubrey Solomon, a former five-star prospect, was all but ready to transfer from the school. The Michigan football program stayed quiet on the issue for a while, but finally broke the silence on Monday afternoon.
According to a statement from Michigan football spokesman Dave Ablauf, the school has given Solomon permission to speak with other schools should he choose to transfer or stay.
“Aubrey (Solomon) has permission to speak with other schools which gives him the opportunity to transfer or stay at Michigan.”

Per 247Sports, Solomon was the No. 23 prospect in the nation, No. 2 DT, and No. 2 prospect from the state of Georgia in the Class of 2017.
But in two seasons with the Wolverines, Solomon struggled to see the field, let alone make an impact on it. In the past two seasons, Solomon has appeared in 10 games, recording a grand total of 19 tackles and 2.0 tackles for loss.
Back in 2017, Solomon had offers from just about every major college program. Suffice it to say, there could be a lot of interest in getting a second chance at bringing Solomon in.
