While the Michigan Wolverines are preparing for their upcoming battle against the Ohio State Buckeyes, Jim Harbaugh lost a player set to be part of the future of his program last night.

On Thanksgiving, three-star recruit Tyrece Woods went public with his latest recruitment decision. Although the talented defensive lineman was set to join the Wolverines, he'll now decommit and consider other options.

"Right now my family and I feel that it is in my best interest to decommit from Michigan and re-open my recruitment and weight all of my options," Woods tweeted.

Here is the post:

Woods is the No. 44 prospect in the state of Michigan, per 247Sports.

Michigan still has 25 commitments in the 2019 recruiting class. This loss won't greatly sting the Wolverines, in part because they already have tons of talent on the defensive line, and are in good shape for some top recruits at the position.

However, it's not exactly the news that Michigan wants to hear entering the biggest game of the year.
