Michigan flips four-star Miami commit

Recruiting


Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas four-star outside linebacker Anthony Solomon flipped his commitment from Miami to Michigan Sunday night.

Solomon, the 10th ranked outside backer in the country per the 247Sports Composite, made the announcement via Twitter.

“Throughout the recruiting cycle, Coach (Jim) Harbaugh and Coach (Don) Brown have never given up on me,” Solomon wrote in his Twitter post.

Having been committed to the Hurricanes since April 4, a late push from U-M, after cooling off on Solomon for the better part of the past year, was enough to inevitably land Florida’s 28th ranked recruit.

Among those congratulating the South Florida product was current Michigan linebacker, junior Devin Bush. 

Michigan’s 2019 class ranks No. 8 overall in the country and first in the Big Ten. It includes 10 recruits ranked inside the Composite’s top-300, 14 four-stars and 11 three-stars.

Solomon is the No. 193 overall prospect in the country and one of two linebackers in the class — the other being Oakdale (Conn.) St. Thomas More three-star, Charles Thomas.

At 25 commitments, U-M’s recruiting class is running out of scholarship flexibility but remains aggressively recruiting numerous 2019 prospects. There’s no definitive number, but five seems like the absolute maximum.
