Michigan has lost another tight end from their 2014 depth chart, this time from a player departure. Redshirt senior Jordan Paskorz has left the program, according to Matt Pargoff of Maize and Blue News, citing program officials.
He was on the Spring roster for 2014 initially, but his name vanished from the list just days later. One has to assume that the depth chart was too much to overcome in terms of playing time.
Paskorz was recruited as a defensive end by former head coach Rich Rodriguez, but was then moved to the tight end position prior to the 2012 season. He has never had a catch in his career and has only appeared sparingly as a special teams player, though he received a start this season against Michigan State in a three-tight end formation.
As far as the depth chart at tight end goes moving forward, the absence of Paskorz should not really change much. Even with Jake Butt out with a torn ACL injury, the stable of tight ends features AJ Williams, Ian Bunting, and Khalid Hill with the possibility of Devin Funchess rotating between there and wide receiver, depending on packages.
To sum it up, the writing was on the wall and Paskorz decided to move on.
Spring practices are currently underway, and the annual Spring Game at the Big House will take place on April 5.
