Michigan's big recruiting weekend is still rolling. The Wolverines just flipped defensive end Aaron Lewis.

Lewis, a three-star prospect out of Williamstown (N.J.), had been committed to West Virginia since April. He even officially visited Morgantown last weekend.

However, after a weekend official visit to Michigan, the 6-foot-5, 235-pounder switched his commitment. He is the second verbal for the Wolverines today, joining three-star athlete William Mohan.

"Please respect my decision. I am Happy to say I am now committed to the University of Michigan," Lewis tweeted.

Lewis is the No. 13 prospect in New Jersey and the No. 21 strong-side defensive end in the 2020 class, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

He is the 12th commitment for Michigan in the 2020 cycle. The Wolverines' recruiting class currently ranks third in the Big Ten and 18th nationally.
