Ahead of its huge game against Ohio State, Michigan got some very nice news on the recruiting front on Friday night.
Three-star defensive end Taylor Upshaw is in Ann Arbor for an official visit, and evidently he likes what he’s seen.
On Friday night, Upshaw made the decision to flip from the Florida Gators to the Michigan Wolverines.
He announced the decision via Twitter.
Committed! 〽️🔵 pic.twitter.com/mAtrz0S9u5

His full note:
“I would like to thank Coach Rumph and the University of Florida for recruiting me and offering me a scholarship, but after long thought and discussion with my family I have decided to decommit from the University of Florida and commit to The University of Michigan! Go Blue! #BlueBloods18”
Upshaw, son of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders defensive end Regan Upshaw, committed to Florida back in June, but with the Gators’ coaching situation up in the air, it is not a huge surprise that he would look elsewhere.
