Citing a lack of desire to be on the football field, Central Michigan offensive lineman Logan Slaughter announced his decision to leave the program Tuesday. 

A transfer is out of the question, as he'll continue to pursue a degree in Secondary Education. 

"I want to thank CMU's program for all they provided me and did for me; the experience was truly invaluable," Slaughter wrote on Twitter. "I will be forever grateful to CMU's football program and staff.

Slaughter was a three-star recruit and 49th overall player in the state of Michigan from the 2015 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He started at guard last season on Sept. 9 in a win at Kansas. 

Slaughter left Mendon High School with 49 total tackles, 28 pancake blocks, nine tackles-for-a-loss and seven sacks his senior year — earning the Southwest 10 Conference MVP and first-team MHSAA Division 7 All-State honors from the Detroit Free Press
