Wide receiver Justin Feagin was dismissed from Michigan's football team Thursday for an unspecified violation of team rules, coach Rich Rodriguez said in a statement.
Feagin, from Deerfield, Fla., was one of the final pieces of Rodriguez's first recruiting class as a dual-threat quarterback. He played sparingly under center as a true freshman and was converted to wide receiver midway through last season.
This year, he was vying for backup time at slot receiver behind fellow sophomore Martavious Odoms.
Feagin is the third 2008 recruit to leave the team in recent months. Sophomore offensive linemen Dan O'Neill and Kurt Wermers transferred to Western Michigan and Ball State, respectively. According to an ESPN.com report, Wermers was academically ineligible at the time of his transfer.
At least RR is doing the right thing, violate the rules and you're done. Problem is I really thought Feagin had a bright future at Michigan and was going to be a huge contributor.
