Michigan’s second decommitment of Monday was a big one in every way: 2017 defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon.
Solomon announced his decision on Twitter to reopen his recruitment, saying he still plans to take an official visit to Michigan.
“Academically, you cannot go wrong with Michigan but this go around I will make my decision with my mother in the drivers seat.”
A 6-foot-3, 305 pound defensive tackle from Leesburg, Ga., where U-M held a satellite camp, Solomon was a major land when he committed to U-M on June 18.
He is the No. 5 ranked defensive tackle in the 2017 class according to 247Sports and was the second highest ranked player in the U-M class.
According to 247Sports, Michigan’s own mailer burned the Wolverines.
“A day or two ago, they sent my mom a card thanking us for going to the Michigan bbq, but we never went,” Solomon told the Georgia version of the 247Sports site. “I do not know which recruit they were talking to, but it was not me. It was just a little heartbreaking, for me to supposedly be so high on their list, for them to confuse me with someone else. Plus they spelled both of my names wrong after I told them, but that was not the main issue. I guess they do not have tabs on me.”
Without Solomon, Michigan’s class is at 18 commitments.
A 2018 defensive tackle, Leonard Taylor, decommitted earlier in the day.
