Ricardo Miller's status with Michigan football team unclear
ANN ARBOR -- Rumors that receiver/tight end Ricardo Miller left the Michigan football team have swirled this week after a Facebook post from an account that bears his name announced his departure.
A Michigan spokesman could neither confirm nor deny Miller left the team, saying only that the team cannot address Miller's status at this time. It remains unclear if the Facebook post is authentic.
The post reads: "yes the message I said a few days about me leaving in May implies that I am no longer with the Michigan football team. I am pursing my degree in political science and continuing my football dream and my masters degree somewhere else. #Gods plan for me." (sic)
Miller is a redshirt sophomore from Orlando, Fla., who played his final year of high school at Pioneer High School. He enrolled early at Michigan as a receiver, but was later moved to tight end and has played sparingly the past three seasons.
He played in 13 games the past two years, most of which was spent on special teams. He did not record a catch.
