Feagin reportedly plans to transfer to Appy State

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

ESPN's Joe Schad is reporting that former Michigan quarterback/slot receiver Justin Feagin plans to transfer to FCS power Appalachian State and could play this season as long as he's academically eligible.

Michigan dismissed Feagin last month for an unspecified violation of team rules.

The Michigan-Appalachian State connection here is somewhat intriguing, though I doubt Feagin is trying to stick it to his old school by joining a team that handed the Wolverines arguably their most shocking loss ever (until Toledo last year). Appalachian State, as many of us found out after the upset in Ann Arbor, has been a first-rate program at the FCS level and a good destination for transfers.

Feagin came to Michigan as a quarterback and competed briefly for the starting job before being moved to slot receiver.
