River Rouge (MI) River Rouge defensive tackle Davonte Miles decommitted from Michigan on Thursday. He had been committed to Michigan since mid-December of 2020 (LINK).
Miles is listed at 6’5″, 275 lbs. and is a 3-star, the #127 defensive lineman, and #960 overall.
I did not view Miles as an impact player at the next level, but his commitment was important because Michigan needs interior defensive linemen. While Michigan does not have any other defensive tackle commitments, they are pursuing numerous others and Miles seemed to have been forgotten. With a new defensive staff in place, it’s quite possible that Mike Macdonald and Co. just didn’t see Miles fitting into their scheme.
Michigan has now lost two defensive tackle commits in the 2022 class, Miles and Alex VanSumeren.
