Secondary continues to thin at Michigan

A Michigan secondary that was already thin will have to deal with another loss, as sophomore safety Vladimir Emilien has decided to transfer.

Emilien appeared in five games last season for the Wolverines, mostly on special teams, and played a reserve role in Saturday’s season-opening win over Connecticut.

The 6-1, 204-pounder is the second defensive back to transfer from Michigan in the last month. He follows cornerback Justin Turner, who left the program shortly after preseason camp began.

Cornerback Troy Woolfolk, a projected starter, was lost to a serious ankle injury halfway through camp, while highly sought cornerback/safety recruit Demar Dorsey was not admitted to the university this summer. He later enrolled at Louisville.

In addition, All-Big Ten cornerback Donovan Warren declared early for this past April's NFL draft but was not selected.
