2017 4-star DT Aubrey Solomon decommits from Michigan

Just hours after losing a 4-star prospect from the 2018 class, the University of Michigan football program has lost another highly-touted high school commit, this time from the class of 2017.

Defensive lineman Aubrey Solomon (Leesburg, GA) has reportedly decommitted from the Wolverines, at least for now it appears.

You read that right, Nation. Apparently the decision to decommit from the program was fueled by some mishap in the communication process. Here is what Solomon said in an interview regarding the issue:

“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 247. “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.”

Despite the subtraction of Solomon, who was rated the second-best prospect from the 2017 class for the Wolverines, Michigan still holds a top-10 recruiting crop nationally for next year’s class and ranks 2nd in the Big Ten to only Ohio State. The class for U-M still features 18 prospects in total, half of which are 4-star prospects.

Solomon, being a native of Georgia, is drawing lots of interest from the SEC powerhouse programs. He’s rated as a top-5 defensive tackle, top-10 player in the state and among the top 100 overall prospects. He currently has nothing scheduled beyond today’s announcement of his decommitment. So as they say in the entertainment business, stay tuned.
