Technically not 2020 yet, but I figured I'd start posting any changes to the roster going into next year that I come across.
First up:

LB Tre Hendon is going to do a grad transfer. Hendon redshirted in 2016, played in 12 games in 2017 with 16 tackles, played in 6 games in 2018 with 4 tackles, and played in 8 games with 5 tackles this last year.

That sounds ominous. Hopefully more "rebuild mode" rather than "fleeing a sinking ship".

Darron Wheeler, Senior DB from Ypsilanti, MI
Played as a true freshman in 2016 in 9 games, 12 games as a sophomore, then 10 as a Junior in 2018. Was injured before the 2019 season and had leg surgery, so he did not play (redshirt) this last season.
He will be doing a grad transfer:

I hope this doesn't get ugly. Starting from scratch would not be a good thing.

I agree! But, this is exactly what the program needs to do. In fact, it has to. Can the current coaching staff achieve this goal. I do not think so.
