Ex-Wolverine Vlad Emilien To Transfer To Colorado

Safety Vlad Emilien, who left the Michigan football team days after the first game of the season, is going to transfer to Colorado, according to Scout.com.

Emilien came to Michigan in the winter of 2009 as a four-star safety. Although he suffered a knee injury during his final season in high school, the hope was that he would be back to 100% after taking a redshirt his first year on campus. As it turns out, he apparently didn't recover enough to climb up the depth chart, because he was sitting behind a walk-on before deciding to transfer. Part of the reason he left Michigan was for playing time reasons.

Emilien isn't the first Michigan player to leave for Colorado in recent years, as wide receiver Toney Clemons transferred from Michigan to Colorado back in the spring of 2009.
