4-star defensive end flips from Michigan to Stanford
Michigan received some bad news as B1G Media Days kicked off on Monday.
One of the Wolverines’ top commitments from the 2019 class, four-star defensive end Stephen Herron Jr., announced via Twitter on Monday that he would be decommitting from Michigan and has committed to Stanford.
Herron previously committed to Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines in late June.

Herron is ranked as one of the top 100 players in the 2019 recruiting class and is No. 5 among defensive ends. He’s ranked as the top player in Kentucky according to 247Sports.
The decommitment drops Michigan to No. 9 nationally in the 2019 recruiting rankings but the Wolverines still sit with the second-best class in the B1G.
Regardless of the ranking, this was still a tough loss for Harbaugh and the Wolverines.
