Aurora (IL) West defensive tackle Denver Warren, a 2020 prospect, decommitted from Michigan on Monday morning. Warren has offers from much of the Big Ten (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State, Penn State, Wisconsin, etc.) and 14 offers total, so he will find a landing spot. He’s a 4-star, the #24 defensive tackle, and #257 overall.
Warren committed to Michigan back in July (LINK), but he tweeted out on Monday morning that Michigan doesn’t have enough scholarship spots for defensive linemen in the 2020 class. I find that statement to be somewhat questionable, because I doubt the coaching staff knows with 100% certainty who will be playing defensive line for them in 2020. Players get hurt, players transfer, players get in trouble, players leave early for the NFL, etc. It will be interesting to see whether Michigan adds any defensive linemen (particularly defensive tackles) to the 2020 class between now and February of 2020.
Michigan is down to five commitments in the 2020 class: RB Tim Baldwin, WR Kalil Branham, TE Nick Patterson, LB Cornell Wheeler, and CB Andre Seldon.
