Michigan says Norfleet's status an 'internal matter'

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan says wide receiver Dennis Norfleet's status is an ''internal matter'' after his high school coach said he was no longer a member of the Wolverines.

Detroit King coach Dale Harvel told The Detroit News and MLive.com on Tuesday that Norfleet was dismissed from the team.

The 5-foot-7 Norfleet has caught 21 passes for 157 yards in three seasons at Michigan. He has made a bigger impact on special teams, averaging 23.4 yards per kick return.
