Jon Horford will be transferring out of the Michigan program, the school announced in a release on Thursday.
Horford should graduate in May, meaning that he will be eligible immediately wherever he ends up.
“Jon has been an integral part of our many accomplishments over the last four years,” said Beilein. “He brought great enthusiasm, leadership and work ethic to our program. Jon is a wonderful young man, who has a very bright future ahead of him.”
“My time at Michigan has been the most beneficial period of my life in terms of athletic development and overall enlightenment,” said Horford. “The bonds created over the last four years are everlasting, and the memories made are truly priceless. As on all journeys, new paths must be taken and intuition must be trusted. I leave Michigan with nothing but love in my heart.”
Horford played 107 games during his tenure with the Wolverines. He averaged 3.8 points and 4.2 boards this past season.
Jon is the younger brother of Atlanta Hawk forward Al Horford.
