One of the top defensive recruits in the 2019 class has announced some major news regarding his decision. He's opted to flip his commitment.

Stephen Herron Jr., a four-star defensive lineman, had been committed to Michigan, but he's decided to de-commit from the Wolverines.

The No. 5 defensive end in the 2019 class has flipped his commitment, too.

Herron has committed to Stanford.

The top defensive lineman announced his decision on Twitter.

This is a major loss for Michigan and a huge addition for Stanford. Herron was the second-highest rated recruit in the Wolverines' class. He's become the second-highest ranked commit in the Cardinal's 2019 class.

Herron chose Stanford over Alabama, Florida and Ohio State, among other programs.
