Justin Turner Reportedly Will Transfer To West Virginia

Former Michigan cornerback Justin Turner, who left the team last week, is reportedly going to transfer to West Virginia.

A little over a week after he was granted his released from the University of Michigan former five-star safety Justin Turner will take is talents to Morgantown, according to Ray Jeske from ESPN 990 in Massillon, Ohio. The 6-foot-2, 186 pound safety was unhappy with the playing time he was getting with the Wolverines. He will sit out his first year at WVU and will be eligible to play for the Mountaineers next season.

With Troy Woolfolk out for the season, Michigan could certainly use Turner, who would probably play quite a bit now that depth is even thinner at the position. Then again, if Turner couldn't crack the depth chart of Michigan's mediocre secondary even before the Woolfolk injury, it suggests he would have still had a ways to go before seeing the field. Either way, I'm sure Michigan wishes it still had the extra depth.
