Edmond had originally committed to Purdue

Edmond, who is attending Northwood High School in Nappanee, Ind., had originally committed to Purdue but reneged on the commitment with an announcement on social media.

“First and foremost thank you to everyone at Purdue University for giving me an incredible experience/opportunity to carry on my legacy, and for all they've done for me and my family during recruitment,” Edmond wrote. “After talking to my parents, I would like to announce that I will be de-committing from Purdue University.”

He announced his commitment to Michigan soon afterward

He is ranked No. 723 in the 247Sports Composite. He's also ranked the 8th best player from the state of Indiana, the 65th best cornerback nationally, and comes in ranked 723rd among all players.

Soon afterward, he announced that he was instead committing to the Wolverines:
