Taylor Groves, Ex-Wolverine

Taylor Groves

Cross Plains (TN) East Robertson safety Taylor Groves decommitted from Michigan earlier this week. Groves committed to the Wolverines sight unseen shortly after Maurice Linguist was hired to be the cornerbacks coach and co-defensive coordinator.

Michigan has done well recruiting the safety position in recent years, but Groves seemed like perhaps a new direction for the position. He is tall and lanky (listed at 6’2″, 175 lbs.) with cornerback skills. Michigan has generally seemed to reel in shorter, thicker, quasi-outside linebacker types for safety, aside from Daxton Hill.

Groves is the third decommitment in the 2022 class, joining safety Myles Rowser (Arkansas) and defensive tackle Alex VanSumeren (undecided).
