Joe Milton began the season as Michigan's starting quarterback. Now, he's in the transfer portal.

Milton started in five games for the Wolverines this season before he was benched in favor of Cade McNamara midway through Michigan's game against Rutgers, which sparked an overtime comeback victory. On the season, Milton completed 56.7 percent of his passes for 1,077 yards and threw as many interceptions (4) as he did touchdowns.

Though he struggled throughout the season, Milton shined in his debut start, going 15-22 through the air for 225 yards and a touchdown and adding eight rushes for 52 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

His performance briefly had more than a few Michigan fans riding unreasonably high after the 49-24 win over Minnesota.

With Milton officially gone, Michigan's starting quarterback battle will now likely come down to the incumbent McNamara and incoming five-star freshman J.J. McCarthy.
