Michigan graduate CB Blake Countess will have an official visit with Auburn on Friday.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder had a visit with Arizona last week, and is eager to visit Auburn. "I have heard really good things about Auburn," Countess told Rivals. "I'm really excited to get down there and see what it's all about." The graduate transfer has 38 total games under his belt, with 30 starts on his resume. With the Tigers looking to add quality depth to their secondary, Countess could find a role in Gus Malzahn's defense. Countess still plans to make a visit to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State later this month.

Michigan graduate CB Blake Countess visited Arizona on Monday.

Countess announced last week he will play his final season of collegiate football at a different program. Countess is from the Maryland area, but the link to Rich Rodriguez and Arizona makes sense, as Rich Rod recruited and signed Countess out of high school.

Michigan redshirt senior CB Blake Countess announced he will transfer.

The All-Big-Ten first-teamer in 2013 (honorable mention selection last year) collected 114 tackles and six interceptions in 38 career games for the Wolverines. Coaching changes often lead to transfer defections and that's been the case for Michigan, which has lost running back Justice Hayes, center Jack Miller, quarterback Russell Bellomy and tight end Keith Heitzman since Jim Harbaugh took over. Countess is eligible to play immediately wherever he goes because he's already graduated.

Michigan redshirt junior CB Blake Countess "has the fluid body type and ballskills that make him an attractive pro prospect," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Countess returned last year and was the most consistent member of the Wolverines' secondary, finishing with a conference-best six interceptions. He will have some hiccups when he takes chances, but Countess has the fluid body type and ballskills that make him an attractive pro prospect," Brugler wrote. The 5-foot-10, 180 pound Countess started in 13 games last season for the Wolverines and tied for first in the Big Ten, and tied for seventh in the FBS with 6 interceptions.

Michigan redshirt sophomore Blake Countess has kept his starting right CB job after missing the 2012 season following a knee injury suffered against Alabama.

Countess was considered one of the top young corners in college football prior to the knee injury, which took place in the season opener. He was able to designate last year with medical redshirt tag, so Countess has three more season of eligibility counting 2013. Michigan also lists Countess as their nickel corner, so he could see time in the slot.

Michigan sophomore CB Blake Countess will reportedly miss the 2012 season with a knee injury.

Countess is one of the top young corners in college football and was injured early in the game while covering a punt. The sophomore reportedly tore his ACL. The Wolverines are fairly deep at the position after returning every starter and backup in the secondary except for Troy Woolfolk. Junior Courtney Avery and sophomore Raymon Taylor are the two likeliest options to replace Countess.
