Michigan's football program took a sizable hit this morning, when one of the Wolverines' top recruits in the 2019 class announced he was backing off his commitment.
Te'Cory Couch, a four-star athlete, announced Saturday morning that he's decided to open back up his recruitment. He announced the decision on Twitter.
His message was simple. "Officially de-committing from the university of Michigan," he wrote.
Here's the full announcement:
The athlete and defensive back is ranked the No. 37 overall prospect in a loaded recruiting state of Florida. It's a sizable loss for the Wolverines' 2019 class.
Despite the loss, Michigan still holds the best recruiting class in the Big Ten and sits at No. 7 nationally.
Couch had previously been committed to Tennessee. He flipped from the Volunteers to the Wolverines in mid-April, but that decision didn't last long.
Miami has been hot on the recruiting trail, and is in the hunt for the home-state product.
