Head coach Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines typically make positive waves on the recruiting front.
Monday was different, however, as 2017 4-star defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon (Leesburg, Ga./Lee County) withdrew his pledge from the Maize and Blue.
“A day or two ago, they sent my mom a card thanking us for going to the Michigan bbq, but we never went,” Solomon told Dawgs247. “I do not know which recruit they were talking to, but it was not me. It was just a little heartbreaking, for me to supposedly be so high on their list, for them to confuse me with someone else. Plus they spelled both of my names wrong after I told them, but that was not the main issue. I guess they do not have tabs on me.”
The 6-foot-3, 305-pound Solomon now opens his process back up, in which he lists Alabama, USC, Oregon, Clemson, Florida and the in-state Georgia Bulldogs as those in the running. The last one on that list may in fact be the frontrunner, given Solomon’s mother — who’s heavily involved in his final decision — raved about the Bulldogs earlier in her son’s process.
“My mom is a big, huge part because she knows me better than anyone,” Solomon said. “I really take her word in a lot. I felt like I did my commitment behind her back a little since she was not there. I want her to be more involved and I want to listen to her more.
“This go-around I will make my decision with my mother in the driver’s seat.”
