Poor Mike Weber. Months after de-committing from the University of Michigan Football program to play for their hated Ohio rival, Ohio State gave Weber a taste of his own medicine. After Weber found out that his recruiter and position coach at OSU, Stan Drayton, was leaving for the NFL’s Chicago Bears, he took to Twitter to express his displeasure.
I'm hurt as hell I ain't gone lie

It really is a dirty recruiting trick, and some people think Weber may seriously contemplate leaving the Buckeyes after they essentially tricked him into committing to them. I wouldn’t go that far, though.
It could be a tough lesson learned for the young man, or it could even be a little taste of karma. It’s almost hard to feel sorry for a guy that de-committed from the Michigan Wolverines to sell out to the dark side. Weber played high school football right here in Detroit, and it makes it even more difficult to forgive such a heinous act. However, college football is a business, and all parties need to do what is best for themselves.
