Michigan tight end Devin Asiasi is reportedly considering a transfer away from Michigan and could be heading closer to home.
A “reputable source” told 247Sports that the California native is “in the early process of seeking a transfer to attend school…on his native West Coast.”
Aside from wanting to play closer to home, there has not been any other reason revealed as to why Asiasi is considering a transfer away from Michigan.
USC and UCLA are rumored to be the favorites to land the former four-star prospect. Boss Tagaloa, one of Asiasi’s former high school teammates, is a defensive tackle for the Bruins and the two reportedly had discussed attending the same school when they were being recruited. The Trojans were a finalist to land the tight end before he committed to Michigan in 2016.
Asiasi appeared in 13 games as a true freshman and caught two passes for 18 yards and a touchdown. He rated as the No. 3 tight end and No. 12 California prospect for the 2016 national recruiting class.
Aside from USC and UCLA, Asiasi also held offers from several other Pac-12 schools including Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon and Washington.
