Already the favorite to repeat as SIAC Champs, Tuskegee just added a FBS transfer to its arsenal. Former Michigan kick return specialist Dennis Norfleet is now a member of Tuskegee’s football program, according to Mo Carter.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Norfleet’s status with Michigan was in limbo since the spring, when reports surfaced that he was kicked off the team by head coach Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh reportedly gave him an opportunity to come back according to MLive.com
Norfleet had been given an opportunity to find his way back into the program by Harbaugh throughout the summer, according to a source close to the receiver. The source also explained how Harbaugh was more than fair with Norfleet throughout the summer, and gave the receiver a real chance of getting back in the program’s good graces.
The 5’7, 168-pound receiver/specialist already holds Michigan’s career records for kickoff returns and yards. If he transfers down to D2, he could play immediately.
