The defensive end from Ohio never played a down for the Wolverines.
The Michigan Wolverines and redshirt freshman Chris Rock have parted ways without the defensive end ever playing a snap for the team. Rock has left the team, according to The Wolverine.
As of now, there is no word about any possible transfer on the horizon.
Rock was expected to backup at defensive end after working with the team this spring, but the 6-5, 267-pound lineman will play his football elsewhere now.
The Ohio native was a three-star recruit coming out of high school, according to Rivals.com. He was ranked at the No. 38 overall player in his state. He was also ranked at the No. 34 defensive end in the class of 2012 by ESPN.com.
Rock was high school teammates with offensive guard Patrick Omameh at St. Francis DeSales in Columbus, Ohio.
