Radio host/TheMichiganInsider publisher Sam Webb broke the news on his show on WTKA Wednesday morning.
As I just reported on @michiganinsider, soph CB Nate Johnson was dismissed from the football team yesterday. It is permanent.

As originally reported by MLive, according to university spokeswoman Diane Brown, Johnson was arrested early last Saturday morning and charged with one count of domestic assault for what MLive called an “attack on a female student.” The report said the attack is believed to have taken place in the victim’s dorm room.
Johnson has a pre-trial date set for Oct. 11, according to MLive.
The Wolverines announced that he was “suspended indefinitely from all team activities” on Saturday.
Johnson switched from wide receiver to cornerback after registering one catch for four yards in 2016. He has not recorded any stats this season.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Johnson committed to the Wolverines 2016 class as a 3-star receiver recruit from Thompson’s Station, Tenn.
Michigan is coming off a 28-10 win at Purdue on Sept. 23. The Wolverines are back in action on Saturday at home against Michigan State at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
