Michigan declines comment on Ricardo Miller's status with football team

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan declined to comment on Ricardo Miller's status with the team, after he allegedly wrote on his Facebook page that he was leaving the team.

Michigan representatives declined to comment on the status of WR/TE Ricardo Miller Wednesday after a post appeared on Facebook under an account bearing Miller's name claiming that he was leaving the team, but neither Miller nor the team have confirmed or denied whether or not it was actually written by Miller. The post reads:

"yes the message I said a few days about me leaving in May implies that I am no longer with the Michigan football team. I am pursing my degree in political science and continuing my football dream and my masters degree somewhere else. #Gods plan for me." (sic)

Miller has appeared in 13 games for the Wolverines over the past two seasons, almost entirely as a special teams player. He has yet to record a catch. He came to Michigan as a wide receiver originally, but was moved to tight end afterwards.

The Wolverines take on the Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday in a game with serious implications in the Big Ten standings. The Wildcats sit one game behind Michigan and Nebraska in the Legends Division standings, and Michigan needs a win to keep pace with Nebraska, who holds the tiebreaker of them by virtue of their 23-9 win over the Wolverines last weekend in Lincoln.
