My apologies for posting this late -- flying to California to visit family and actually posting this from somewhere over Iowa -- but Michigan reportedly has lost another cornerback.

Cullen Christian told Superprep.com that he's requested a transfer and will play football elsewhere. Christian appeared in 10 games last season as a true freshman, recording six tackles.
"Coach [Brady] Hoke is a great guy and I have no issues with him at all," Christian told Superprep.com. "I had meetings with my other coaches and I just didn't like the direction that they had me going in. I think it is best that I move on and finish my career elsewhere."

He said he felt he performed well in spring practice until a back injury sidelined him for a scrimmage and the spring game.

Christian is the second player to depart since Hoke became coach. Safety Ray Vinopal transferred to Pittsburgh.

Although Michigan could be fine at cornerback if Troy Woolfolk and J.T. Floyd get healthy and perform to their capabilities, it's amazing what has happened to this position in recent years. Here's a look at all the issues the Wolverines have had at cornerback.
