Dennis Norfleet transfers from UM to Tuskegee University

B99296139Z.1_20150812120438_000_GEVIL0QD.1-0Dennis Norfleet, the former Michigan receiver/returner, has transferred and is listed on Tuskegee University’s football roster.

Norfleet, who played at Detroit Martin Luther King, holds the Michigan record for career kickoff return yards.

His status with the Michigan program changed in late spring. His high school coach at Detroit King, Dale Harvel, told The Detroit News in May that Norfleet was released from his scholarship at Michigan. Other media outlets reported he had been suspended.

First-year Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said recently he wanted Norfleet to remain at UM.

“A plan was put into place for Dennis to where he could accomplish all his goals athletically and academically,” Harbaugh said. “Our desire is that he gets his Michigan degree and that plan hasn’t changed from our viewpoint. In our conversations I’ve had with Dennis, that’s where it stands.”
