On Tuesday night, Michigan DL George Rooks announced that he has committed to transfer to Boston College for 2023.
Rooks is a New Jersey native entering his junior season after spending two years in Ann Arbor, being recruited out of high school as a 4-star recruit but never really getting an opportunity to shine on Michigan’s stacked roster. The 6’5” defensive lineman appeared in just 6 games for the Wolverines in 2022, but provided good depth as he recovered a fumble in their game against UConn and was able to sub in at the defensive interior, edge, and special teams when needed. He’ll add that depth to a BC front 7 that desperately needs it, after some disaster games led teams like Rutgers run all over the Eagles in 2022.
Welcome to the Heights, George!
