ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Even though most of the focus recently has been on Michigan’s 2013 class and its more than a year until the 2014 signing day, Michigan’s 2014 recruiting class was the one with news on Tuesday.

Offensive tackle Denzel Ward (Bradenton, Fla./IMG Academy) and the Wolverines decided to part ways. It's possible the Michigan coaches had observed some red flags along the way that didn't sit right going forward.

Ward told WolverineNation why he felt the change was necessary.
