The former Michigan defensive defender is moving to Duke

The Michigan the football team loses depth through the transfer portal, as a reserve defensive back Jordan Morant announced to move to Duke.

Morant, who has played in eight games over two seasons for the Wolverines, announced his commitment to the Blue Devils on Saturday.

The 6-foot and 210-pound safety was the academic selection of all the Big Ten, but failed to earn consistent time to play initially with the Wolverines. After being a freshman in 2020, Morant spent most of his time in special teams last season.

According to MLive.com, the team expected Morant to have a chance to enter the rotation in the upcoming season, especially after the Wolverines lost both of their initial security – Daxton Hill was the first-round pick by Cincinnati Bengals and Brad Hawkins signed for the Atlanta Falcons as an unrefined free agent.

Instead, Morant will head to Duke, where he will have three years of terms and numbers left to get a bigger role.

The Blue Devils are entering their first season under new coach Mike Elk after scoring 3-9, including 0-8 in the ACC game, under fired coach David Cutcliffe last season.
