Receiver Je'Ron Stokes leaves Michigan

Michigan junior wide receiver Je'Ron Stokes has left the program, the second player to do so this week.

Stokes played in each of the past two seasons, mostly on special teams, and recorded three receptions for 27 yards. He didn't appear to be a big part of the plan on offense this fall, as Michigan returns veteran wideouts Roy Roundtree and Junior Hemingway, and younger receivers such as Jeremy Jackson have received good reviews during preseason camp.

Michigan on Monday confirmed the departure of freshman offensive lineman Tony Posada.

A heralded high school prospect, Stokes was headed to Tennessee before the Vols fired Phil Fulmer as coach, and he landed with the Wolverines.
