Coastal Carolina has signed an offensive lineman who is transferring from the University of Michigan and is immediately eligible to play.

Sean Fitzgerald of Mount Pleasant, Mich., who is 6-foot-3 and 310 pounds, redshirted as a true freshman this past fall and will have four years of eligibility remaining.

Fitzgerald was named the Wolverines Scout Team Player of the Week once. During his high school career, he was selected to play in the Blue-Gray All-American Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., and was tabbed the 2016 Player of the Year by the Morning Sun newspaper in Alma, Mich.

He was twice named All-State by the Detroit News (2015 and 2016), was a four-year Honor Roll member and four-time Academic All-Saginaw Valley Team member.

He is the 19th player to sign with CCU since the early signing period began Dec. 20. The Chants finished the 2017 season with the youngest offensive line in the nation with four freshman and a sophomore starting.
