Michigan football second-year cornerback Myles Sims has entered the transfer portal.
Sims, a 6-foot-3, 183-pound cornerback from Atlanta Westlake High School, redshirted as a true freshman after enrolling early last year. He was competing for a spot at cornerback for U-M during spring practice.
Michigan confirmed the news Thursday.

U-M’s final spring practice of the year is scheduled to take place Thursday in Ann Arbor.
Sims, a 4-star recruit and the No. 170-ranked player in the country for the class of 2018, was an Under Armour All-American in high school and an early commitment to the Wolverines’ 2018 class. He pledged back in April 2017.
Michigan will likely close spring drills with junior Ambry Thomas and senior Lavert Hill, who was hurt this spring, as its starting corners. Redshirt freshman Vincent Gray was a starter this spring in Hill’s place.
U-M cornerbacks coach Michael Zordich also pointed to junior Jaylen Kelly-Powell and redshirt freshman Gemon Green as corners who made moves this spring.
“Myles has just got to be more consistent,” Zordich said Tuesday. “He put together a couple of nice practices (this spring) and then he just kind of … he’s just got to stay and get better every day.
“He’s got the skill set. … He’s just got to get consistent.”
