Michigan secured a talent booty for the 2023 season through the transfer portal.
We’ve seen the Wolverines offer up a few more players in the portal since the spring ball ended, but the corn and blues have been selective about who they go after.

And it looks like Michigan has found another prospect in the portal its coaching staff is looking for. On Friday, the Wolverines offered cornerback Josh Wallace, who entered the transfer portal after spending four seasons with UMass.
Wallace took to Twitter to announce that Michigan had offered him. According to his Twitter feed Penn stateIndiana, michigan state, OklahomaOregon State and Virginia Tech have all offered the two-time captain.

Wallace was a four-year starter for the Minutemen, who would bring veteran leadership to any school he planned to attend in the fall. In his four seasons with UMass, Wallace totaled 140 tackles, seven tackles for loss, three interceptions and 28 pass breakups.
The veteran angle had a stellar 2022 football season. He had 41 tackles, two interceptions and 28 pass breakups in his final season with the Minutemen.
Cornerback is a necessity for Michigan. Will Johnson is the only returner who has a lot of experience. Mike Sainrstil is locked in as the starting nickel, but the Wolverines are somewhat limited in who could start opposite Johnson. Michigan likes what it’s got in Ja’Den McBurrows and Amorion Walker, but both are unproven.
Wallace played for former Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown at UMass. Brown has been the head coach there since 2022.
