Former Michigan ATH Announces Transfer Destination

When former three-star Nate Johnson announced on Signing Day for Michigan, the future looked bright.

While he may have been a three-star recruit, talent evaluators, such as 247Sports’ Barton Simmons, proclaimed that the Wolverines were going to absolutely love the then-wide receiver’s game.

A part of the talented 2016 haul, the closest Michigan fans got to see Johnson’s talent was in the 2017 Spring Game, when he took a pitch and made a pass attempt.

During the offseason, he moved to cornerback, and was buried beneath a bevy of elite talent at the position.

However, just weeks into the 2017 season, a domestic assault charge changed everything.

Johnson was kicked off the team, but stayed enrolled at the university. It looked like his playing career could be over, but it looks like he will get a second chance.

The versatile athlete announced on Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday evening that he will start his career anew at the junior college level, transferring to Arizona Western Junior College.

Johnson spent four days in jail on a misdemeanor assault and battery charge, and also received probation. He was dismissed from the team on October 4.

He only had one official appearance in a Michigan uniform, pulling in one catch for 4 yards in 2016.
