Former Utah starting cornerback Casey Hughes has found a new home, and it will be in the Big Ten Conference.
Hughes, who announced last week that he would seek a graduate transfer for his final season of eligibility, posted via Twitter on Sunday afternoon that he’ll play for the University of Michigan.
“It’s a blessing to say that I’ll be finishing my last collegiate season at the University of Michigan,” Hughes posted with a picture of him wearing a Wolverines jersey. “I want to thank the entire Michigan coaching staff for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to join their program.”
Hughes, a redshirt junior who started 11 games this past season, played mostly on special teams until earning a starting spot this past season. He finished the season with two forced fumbles (both against Arizona), 35 tackles and one pass breakup.
