Tyrone Wheatley Jr. has officially made his next move – to Stony Brook University.
Stony Brook is a member of the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) and is located in Long Island, New York. He will be able to play immediately and has two years of eligibility left.
The news of Wheatley’s transfer was reported by The Michigan Insider’s Josh Henschke on Aug. 2.
Stony Brook finished 10-3 in the 2017 campaign. The team is coached by Chuck Priore.
Wheatley spent three seasons at Michigan. He took a redshirt in 2015 and played two games as a sophomore and three as a junior. In his Michigan career, the 6-foot-6, 265-pound pass catcher made six receptions for 61 yards and one touchdown.
After struggling to stay healthy on the field, Wheatley was passed on the depth chart by Sean McKeon and Zach Gentry. The duo combined for 48 receptions, 604 yards and five touchdowns in 2017.
Michigan has three tight ends joining the team from the 2018 class and will get Nick Eubanks back healthy for the upcoming season.
