George Rooks’ career in Ann Arbor was short-lived, but we now know where he will continue his college football career.
After picking the Wolverines just before the official national signing date in 2021, the defensive tackle in Michigan football for two years hasn’t seen much playing time for the corns and blues. After his first-half fumble recovery against UConn in Week 3, it seemed like a harbinger of more and more playing time for him, but it didn’t come to pass. He was eventually overtaken by two true freshmen, Mason Graham and Kenneth Grant, on Depth his charts.

Originally from New Jersey, the four-star wanted to move closer to home. He has three years left in his eligibility with the Eagles.
Lukes is one of four former Michigan players who chose to move. Other players are QB Cade McNamara, TE Eric Ole and QB Alan Bowman. McNamara and Orr ended up in Iowa, but Bowman intends to stay with the team until the college football playoffs are over.
