Coach Rod's 2nd recruiting class has had 4 recruits leave the team so far, three have transferred (Demar Dorsey to Grand Rapids CC, J.T. Turner to West Virginia and Austin White to Central Michigan) and three were not eligible due to grades (Conelius Jones (Marshall), Antonio Kinard (Miami-FL) and Davion Rogers). Terry Talbott has had to be held out of practices due to NCAA Clearinghouse issues.

Coach Rod's 1st recruiting class of 25 players has had 7 recruits leave the team to transfer (Hill, Witherspoon, O'Neill, Wermers, Turner, Lolata and McGuffie) with one recruit dismissed from the team (Feagin) for disciplinary reasons, at least four players disciplined as a result of criminal charges and/or convictions (Cissoko, Grady, Milano and Stonum) while and at least two other recruits have publicly discussed transfer possibilities (Cox and Smith). Let us not forget the record of 11 decommitments (Barnes, Beaver, Campbell, Fera, Graves, Jones, McNeal, Newsome, Peace, Wienke and Wilson) with one recommitment (Campbell), and the transfers of 10 players recruited by Coach Carr and staff (Babb, Boren, Chambers, Clemons, Evans, Helmuth, Horn, Kates, Mallett and Threet) including a coaching change (Shafer). Other players who have left the team prior to exhausting their eligibility include Butler, Ciulla, Mitchell and Slocum.
