Not official offical but official (wink wink) per Zordich via Mlive. (not sure if we have done a hello on front page for him already - I don't recall one but if so if so kill the topic mods)
I did a diary on Lyons if you are unfamiliar with his background; I would basically classify him as a taller Ray Taylor. Playing in the Big 10 should be a lot easier on the fella when you compare and contrast the level of QBs in the 2 leagues.
Also Zordich says Countess, Lewis and Stribling are the current top 3 corners. No surprises.
One of the worst-kept secrets around Michigan's football program for months now has been the eventual addition of Stanford graduate transfer corner Wayne Lyons.
On Thursday, new Michigan defensive backs/cornerbacks coach Mike Zordich basically confirmed the move, explaining that Lyons was on campus over the weekend, and the team's excited to bring him in during fall camp.
"Wayne was here over the weekend, we spent some time with him and I've watched a lot of film on him," Zordich said. "I think he's the right kind of body, a bigger body, he's a lot like Channing (Stribling). A lot of length.
"Our (cornerbacks room) has been told that there is going to be three (new) guys coming into the secondary," Zordich says. "We've got a transfer from Stanford coming in, a true freshman (in Keith Washington) and a (freshman) safety who likes to play corner in Tyree Kinnel.
