Dismissed from Michigan's football team back in January after numerous run-ins with the law, wide receiver Darryl Stonum revealed over the weekend that he will be heading to Baylor to play for the Bears next season.
Due to a provision that will allow Stonum to play immediately if he enrolls in a graduate program at Baylor that Michigan doesn't offer, the 6-foot-2 redshirt senior plans to suit up for the Bears this fall. After making the decision to return home to Texas by posting a picture of Baylor's logo, Stonum took to Twitter to thank his fans for support:
Wanna thank every1 for all the love n support throught my career. Past few months been tough but ive learned and its made me a better person— Darryl Stonum (@CornellStone22) July 20, 2012
Viewed as a potential star early in his career, Stonum's track record of poor decision-making ultimately forced head coach Brady Hoke's hand back in the winter. The former four-star prospect seems to have been given one final chance to shine while Baylor casually brushes his character concerns under the rug though, so it will be interesting to see how he performs and whether he's learned from this experience.
