ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan guard Justin Boren, expected to be one of two returning starters on the Wolverines' offensive line next season, has left the team.

Coach Rich Rodriguez told reporters at a Tuesday night news conference about Boren's decision, but declined to discuss specifics.

The junior from Pickerington, Ohio, was expected to start at left guard or center after starting every game last season for the Wolverines.
