Cornerback Terrence Talbott has left the Michigan football program.

Michigan's decision to offer former Penn State cornerback commit Ross Douglas earlier this week now suddenly makes a lot of sense. Douglas almost immediately accepted the offer by committing on Tuesday, and it came out on Thursday that cornerback Terrence Talbott has left the Michigan football program, as first reported by Sam Webb.

Talbott reportedly had a good spring for Michigan, but last season he only appeared in two games. Both of his appearances were on special teams, so he wasn't exactly a contributor on defense in 2011. Whether or not things would have been different in 2012 is now a moot point with him leaving the team.

As Webb pointed out, Talbott's departure helps explain why Michigan is likely going to end up with a full 25-man recruiting class for 2013. The Wolverines are currently at 23 commits, and many believed there was only one opening left after Douglas joined earlier this week. With Talbott leaving, however, another scholarship has been freed up for next year, and Michigan apparently intends to take two more commits for 2013.
