Michigan adds two and loses Army All-American defensive tackle Jordan Elliott

By

Michigan’s commitment list remains in flux.

After a few weeks of hesitation, it appears four-star Houston (Texas) Westside defensive tackle Jordan Elliott is not committed anymore, Scout.com and Wolverines247.com reported.

The four-star defensive tackle committed to Michigan on Nov. 28 when in town watching the Ohio State game and consistently told the recruiting services that he wasn’t planning to take other visits. But then he visited Texas last weekend and posted a tweet today wearing Texas gear with his family.

His Twitter bio, which formerly said he was a U-M commit, no longer says that as well. He would be the fifth player to decommit from Michigan.

It would be a significant loss for the Wolverines, as Elliott was their only Texas prospect in the class and an impressive catch in a tough recruiting territory.

He is the No. 14 defensive tackle in the country according to the 247Sports.com Composite rankings.

If he does indeed leave the class, Michigan would be down to 25 commits after gaining two earlier in the day — Florida receiver Eddie McDoom and Pennsylvania athlete Khaleke Hudson.

Hudson from McKeesport, Pa., is ranked as the No. 23 safety prospect in the 247Sports Composite. He chose the Wolverines over Penn State, UCLA and Pittsburgh.

He visited Michigan two weeks ago and Penn State this past weekend, following the same path as New Jersey defensive tackle Michael Dwumfour, who committed to U-M earlier this week.

Hudson and Dwumfour are part of a number of prospects who chose Michigan over Penn State. A few, including Rockford kicker Quinn Nordin and Detroit King defensive back Lavert Hill, are still considering both schools.

A 6-foot-1, 170-pound three-star prospect from West Orange High School near Orlando — the school at which Michigan practiced for the Citrus Bowl — McDoom visited Ann Arbor last weekend.

The past week and a half were a bit of whirlwind for the No. 65 overall receiver in the 2016 class, as ranked by the 247Sports composite. McDoom decommitted from Oregon nine days ago, after only having joined the Ducks’ class Dec. 13.

He had scholarship offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan State and the Wolverines when he chose Oregon but rethought that pledge in mid-January and wanted to visit U-M. According to 247Sports, when he told that to the Oregon coaches, they pulled his offer.
