Covington (GA) Newton wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman decommitted from Michigan on Friday. He originally committed to the Wolverines in December (LINK).¬†Holloman is a 247 Composite 3-star, the #117 wide receiver, and #822 overall. I liked him as a big outside receiver at 6’3″, 195 lbs.

National Signing Day is almost a year away, so the Wolverines have plenty of time to recover. What’s interesting is that Michigan has a commitment from teammate Kurt Taylor, a 2017 running back, and offered another teammate, linebacker Jaquan Henderson, who is committed to UCLA. There was a time when a lot of people thought Henderson would flip to Michigan in time, but this development potentially throws a bit of a hurdle in the way.

After suffering – and encouraging – a dozen decommitments in the 2016 class, this is the first rescinded pledge of 2017. This is the new way of the world. Michigan had 41 different players committed at different times last year. We’ll see if Michigan can top that number in the next recruiting cycle.

    The days of Hoke filling a class by Summer and mostly holding on to it are long gone… Harbaugh’s recruiting is a wild ride that will keep everyone entertained.

    Well, I’m not sure what to think of this. I’m sure there are plenty of other outside sized WR’s out there, but if Harbawwwwww likes him than I do too. No, I didn’t watch any of his film but people that are over 6 feet tall that can run well and catch are hard to find. This is my analysis, you are welcome.

    My heart is still recovering from this past signing day…so while I do hate to lose a kid several on here like, I can’t start this early. I will end up in an insane asylum. I will just remind myself Jim Harbaugh is paid to worry about this stuff and he will fix this. Ahh, heart rate back to normal (for me which means slightly elevated).

    Can’t get too worried about this. We don’t need a big haul in WR in 2017, and we can do better than this guy. Just wish we would stop offering lower rated guys so early. There’s no reason for it.

    I’m still way too exhausted from the wear and tear of NSD to give a whit about this kid one way or the other. I’m thinking that i’ll likely pull up his Hudl page sometime after the hoopla over spring practice at IMG has subsided.

    Besides, it’s looking to me like nothing much is really going to be decided going forward until the “Signing of the Stars” party is over. Further besides, it’s the really big people that are going to matter this year.

    Time for a reading list. I just gave stupid money for “The Delaware Wing-T: An Order Of Football. By Tubby Raymond. I’m mildly giddy over this purchase as this is the first copy I’ve seen under a hundred bucks in many years.

    As an aside, Asiasi = Beast.

      You know, I was just working on a reading list, but it might not be posted until next week. I like to read four or five books between posts, and I just finished one on Friday. I haven’t read the whole “Delaware Wing-T” book, but I did work with a coach who owned it, so I looked through it. I would have bought it at some point if not for the high price, like you said.
