Michigan Wolverine QB Wilton Speight announced via Instagram and Twitter Sunday that he will be leaving the team.

His instagram said the following,

"Thank you, Michigan.
These past 4 years have been nothing short of spectacular. Enrolling in January of 2014 as a kid from Virginia i didn’t know what to expect. Four years later i leave a Michigan Man. The amazing memories with my teammates, playing under the best coaches in America, and enjoying everything that this wonderful university and town have to offer- what a ride.
To the fans that stuck with us through thick and thin— thank you.
To Coach Hoke for giving a kid with no offers a chance— thank you.
To Coach Harbaugh for coming in and making me a better man and a better quarterback. For understanding this decision of mine and always having my back no matter what— thank you.
I don’t know where next will be, and I’ll use these next four weeks to figure that out. i’m excited to keep pursuing my dreams in a new jersey, but will forever root for the boys wearing the winged helmet. Go blue!"

Right now the Wolverines have an 8-4 record after losing to their rivals Ohio State 31-20 Saturday.
