Former Michigan RB Thomas Rawls has decided to transfer to Central Michigan of the Mid-American Conference.  Central Michigan announced that the former Wolverine had indeed transferred into the program.

Chippewas coach Dan Enos shared,

“We are looking forward to Thomas joining our program and helping us compete for a championship.  He is a hard working, talented player who will bring depth and leadership to our running backs unit. I feel like we have one of the deepest groups of running backs in the Mid-American Conference.”
