The athletic department originally forbade players from transferring to SEC schools or teams that the Rebels will play in the next two seasons.

In a statement to Yahoo! Sports, athletic director Ross Bjork confirmed players are free to transfer to any school.

Rising seniors can transfer without penalty.  Underclassmen will have to receive a waiver from the NCAA to be immediately eligible to play.

Multiple reports state that Shea Patterson, Van Jefferson, and Deontay Anderson will visit Michigan this weekend.
