Report: Four-star OT flips from Michigan to Stanford
The ever-shifting Michigan recruiting class moved around again on Saturday.
Days after losing four-star defensive tackle Jordan Elliott, the Wolverines reportedly lost another four-star lineman.
According to the Baltimore Sun, offensive tackle Devery Hamilton flipped his commitment from Michigan to Stanford.

Hamilton, rated as the 22nd-best offensive tackle in the 2016 class, had been committed to the Wolverines since June. He took his official visit to Ann Arbor two weeks ago but had a change of heart since then.
The flip means that Michigan is down to three offensive linemen in its 2016 class.
The move came after the Wolverines got a commitment from Hamilton’s high school teammate, Stephen Spanellis, who flipped to Michigan from Virginia.
Hamilton will play for Jim Harbaugh’s old team, which now boasts the 11th-ranked 2016 class. With National Signing Day in four days, Michigan has the fifth-ranked class.
