On the day following his official visit to Michigan, Florida State commit Mike Morris made his change of heart official.
He announced via Twitter of his decision to flip his pledge from the Seminoles to the Wolverines.

“I will always be a Seminole and bleed garnet-and-gold,” Morris said in a letter to both fan bases. “God is guiding me in a different direction … I would like to say I’m decommitting from Florida State University and recommitting to the University of Michigan.”
Morris, a senior at top-notch American Heritage (Fla.) HS, made the switch to Michigan following two abysmal games for Florida State. Whether that played a role is unknown but the timing seems all so perfect.
He’s the No. 22 overall defensive end nationally, No. 44 overall prospect in Florida, and the No. 322 overall recruit in the country. He’s got a projectable frame at 6-foot-5, 255 pounds. Not to mention he’s extremely athletic, which helps on the edge, and even plays tight end for his high school team.
The Wolverines lost the commitment of Stephen Herron, a 5-star defensive end, via a flip to Stanford. Morris is a really solid replacement
Michigan’s 2019 class goes to 21 total pledges, move up three spots No. 10 nationally, and the second-best in the B1G behind Ohio State.
TWL reported earlier Sunday that this was believed to be coming sooner than expected. It didn’t take 24 hours.
Blue End Zones are now 1-0 on getting commitments from official visitors – and there might be more to come.
