Aubrey Solomon was once committed to the Wolverines. Then Michigan sent him some mail, thanking him for visiting the Big House BBQ and miss spelled his last name. He de-committed right after that mail arrived.
Since then he has revisited Ann Arbor and brought his mom. From all reports his mom loved Michigan and mostly Momma Gwen. Michigan then started trending again for the 5 star talent.
As it happens with most players, after any visit the player starts trending to that school. During the recent All American game, Aubrey was telling many of the recruiting services that Alabama had a big lead in his recruitment. He even was caught on video bashing Michigan with some Georgia commits. He did apologize for that video.
In a strange turn, that video seemed to give Michigan some momentum in his recruitment as his mother seems strongly in the Wolverines camp and Sam Webb reported that Michigan is very much still in his recruitment.
Then Jimmy brings his daughter on a visit to Aubrey and his family and his mom is quoted as saying "best visit ever". Then some Georgia insiders start predicting he will end up a Michigan.
So Michigan is trending again for Aubrey? Nope.
Aubrey said this about Alabama last night: "They still lead big, but not by a huge margin," Solomon, a former Michigan commit told 247 Sports. "I like the physicality they bring and their defense."
"It was different," Solomon told 247 Sports of the visit. "There was no football involved. We bowled two games. We took Go-karts around for one lap. We ate and then talked. They said they still want me and have a need at my position. They said there's no hard feelings and I'm still family."
He is either playing everyone or he is really headed to Alabama. Which wouldn't surprise any of us.
- Pep Hamilton was out to see Oliver Martin who Michigan seems to be recruiting again. If your wondering, Nico Collins is trending hard to Georgia now. Martin is more of a slot and Collins is more of an outside guy, so they could take both if it came to that. Keep an eye out to see if Martin takes an official to Ann Arbor before 2/1.
- Michigan could still be in play for Clemson OL transfer Jake Fruhmorgen. He would have to sit out a transfer year.
- Reports are that Michigan defensive analyst Rick Finotti is leaving for the head coaching role at John Carroll University.
- Coach Hamilton was also out to see commit RB O'Maury Samuels yesterday and it seems he will also take his official this weekend as well.
