It seems like the rumors have taken a turn for the worse. I had earlier reported that McGuffie was staying, and it seems like his mind has changed. After confirming with three different sources it seems that Sam McGuffie has requested, and is leaning towards transferring from The University of Michigan. This is not final or official, as I am assuming the coaches will talk to him, have him go home for break and think about it. Often times kids will think about it and change their mind. My sources have told me that the cold weather factored in, he requested to move to slot receiver, and had some sort of problem getting along with other teammates. As I said, we will not know for sure if he officially is gone until after the season, but as for now he has told Fred Jackson, and the coaches that he would like to transfer. We will keep you updated on when we know if he decides to stay or go.
