4-Star DT Aubrey Solomon Announces Decommitment From Michigan

Michigan just lost its second four-star commitment of the day when Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon re-opened his recruitment.

Aubrey Solomon joined Leonard Taylor in decommitting from the Wolverines today. Solomon released a lengthy statement on Twitter.

"Recruitment is a funny thing, you can easily get caught up in the moment and feel that everyone knows who you are. With that being said I am going to be re-opening my recruitment, to give the opportunity for those recruiters to not only get it right but get to know me. Academically, you cannot go wrong with Michigan, but this go around I will make my decision with my mother in the drivers seat. I love everything about Michigan and its coaching staff and I still plan on taking my official visit with you. Go Blue!!"

Sounds like Michigan still has a chance will Solomon. The highly-rated defensive tackle originally pledged to Michigan back in June, but Georgia, his home-state program, has been pushing hard.

Solomon, who was recently selected for next year's U.S. Army All-American Bowl, is the No. 5 defensive tackle in the 2017 class. He's also the No. 78 overall player in the nation per 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Update: According to a report from BamaOnline, a recent mailing mistake played a major role in Solomon's decision.

"A day or two ago, they sent my mom a card thanking us for going to the Michigan bbq, but we never went," Solomon said. "I do not know which recruit they were talking to, but it was not me. It was just a little heartbreaking, for me to supposedly be so high on their list, for them to confuse me with someone else. Plus they spelled both of my names wrong after I told them, but that was not the main issue. I guess they do not have tabs on me."

Just another day in the life of big-time recruiting.
