US Army All-American decommits from Michigan

Less than a week after announcing his participation in this season’s US Army All-American Bowl, Aubrey Solomon made another announcement on Monday.

The Lee County (Leesburg, GA) defensive tackle revealed a decommitment to Michigan.

“Recruitment is a funny thing,” Solomon said via Twitter. “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 reopening my recruitment, to give the opportunity for those recruiters to not only get it right, but to get to know me.”

With him pulling away his verbal agreement, Aubrey still plans to make a trip to Ann Arbor, MI this upcoming Fall, while currently holding scholarship offers from 11 other schools as well.

“Academically, you cannot go wrong with Michigan,” he said. “But this go around, I will make my decision with my mother in the driver’s seat. I love everything about Michigan and its coaching staff, and I still plan on taking my official visit with you. Go Blue!”

Prior to an unofficial visit, and committing to the Wolverines on June 18, Solomon received a visit from Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer (Jan. 26), attended Florida’s junior day, and took unofficial visits to Auburn (Feb. 20 and June 4) and Alabama (April 8).

The 2017 prospect provides scheme diverse traits along the line of scrimmage. Solomon is an ideal fit as a nose guard in a 3-4 look, and a defensive tackle in 4-3, nickel, dime and quarters packages. Provides elite quickness and strength at the point of attack with an ability to rush the passer, and display a stout presence in run support.
