Donovan Jeter, Former Notre Dame Commit, Apologizes For Comments About Brian Kelly

Donovan Jeter decommitted from Notre Dame last week. On Sunday, he committed to Michigan.

Donovan Jeter, a four-star defensive lineman in the 2017 class, spoke with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette following his commitment to Michigan.

The defensive end boasted about his future coach, Jim Harbaugh, saying he "might be the coolest dude I ever met in my life."

He also had some things to say about Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly, saying it wasn't fun or cool talking to him.

From the Post-Gazette:

"(Harbaugh) doesn’t act like he’s important. … He’s real down to earth and humble. He’s easy to talk to. Talking to Brian Kelly wasn’t fun. It wasn’t cool. You have to make an appointment just to go to his office. Coach Harbaugh has an open-door policy. Every one of Michigan’s coaches has an open-door policy"

Jeter took to Twitter last night to apologize for those comments, saying at no time did he mean to disrespect Kelly or Notre Dame.

Jeter is ranked the No. 279 player in the 2017 class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings. Michigan's 2017 class is ranked the No. 9 class in the country.
