Four-star OT decommits from Michigan
In a rare turn of events, there was Michigan recruiting news that didn’t involve a wacky Jim Harbaugh story.
And unfortunately for the Wolverines, it wasn’t good news.
Four-star offensive tackle Erik Swenson announced his decommitment from the program on Wednesday, citing “unforeseen circumstances.”
According to Mlive.com, Swenson had his scholarship offer pulled and canceled his previously scheduled official visit. The report said the school did not give a reason for its actions.
Here was the announcement he made on Twitter:

Swenson was committed to the Wolverines during the Brady Hoke era, and was the longest committed player in Harbaugh’s 2016 class.
The Downers Grove, Illinois native was one of four offensive linemen committed to the Wolverines’ 2016 class. Michigan still boasts four-star tackles in Ben Bredeson and Devery Hamilton while four-star guard Michael Onwenu was a U.S. Army All-American.
Michigan sits at No. 3 in the 247sports 2016 class rankings with National Signing Day two weeks away.
