Kaleb Ringer has left the Michigan football team, program announces.
— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) May 6, 2013
Speculation of Ringer's departure surfaced earlier Monday after he
changed his Twitter bio to "@Ring_RingFSU," mentioned "FSU football" in
his bio and included the Ferris State logo as his background. His
brother, Korey, also plays for the Bulldogs.
Ringer has not directly stated he's transferring to Ferris State, though, and did not return requests seeking comment.
Yes, that indeed seems to be the case. The 3-star recruit out of Ohio, Hoke's 3rd commit from the 2012 class, has found himself buried too deep for comfort on the linebacker depth chart going into his 2nd year in the program. That place in depth chart is somewhat due in part to his season-ending knee injury from fall camp last summer which kept him out of the 2012 season.
Long/short-term effects for Michigan? Short-term it means one-less dude on the depth chart. Given the depth already in place and incoming freshmen, I don't see this having much of a negative impact. Long-term it means another precious scholarship becomes available.
Best of luck to Kaleb wherever he ends up.
BEST OF MAXIM

President Barack Obama gave the commencement speech at Ohio State University this past weekend and took a page out of the Woody Hayes/Urban Meyer playbook by referring to Michigan as “that certain university up North.” The Buckeyes head coach has refused to mention Michigan by name since taking over the football program two winters ago. If there is one thing that President Obama...
It’s no secret that Michigan and Purdue have prioritized Vince Edwards at the combo forward position. The 6-foot-7 forward demonstrated why both John Beilein and Matt Painter want him so badly at the 2013 Bill Hensley Memorial Run-n-Slam Classic in Fort Wayne over the weekend.
Edwards was critical in helping his All Ohio Red squad take home the 17U Championship in a loaded field...
John Beilein has only extended six offers total in the class of 2014 but with just three offered targets remaining on the board that list should grow. When he sets foot on campus, Kameron Chatman is likely to have a place on that list.
