Michigan's secondary takes a hit, losing J.T. Turner after he was granted release from team

Michigan cornerback J.T. Turner is no longer a Wolverine.

The school said Wednesday that Turner asked for and was granted his release. He had a chance to start this season after cornerback Donovan Warren chose to skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Turner, who is from Massillon, Ohio, was one of coach Rich Rodriguez's highly touted recruits last year and then redshirted last season as a freshman.
