According to 247Sports‘ Kipp Adams, a mailing mistake hurt Michigan. As Adams reports, Michigan sent Solomon’s mom a card thanking them for going to a Michigan barbecue.
The problem? They didn’t attend — and names were spelled incorrectly.
“I do not know which recruit they were talking to, but it was not me. It was just a little heartbreaking, for me to supposedly be so high on their list, for them to confuse me with someone else,” Adams quoted Solomon. “Plus they spelled both of my names wrong after I told them, but that was not the main issue. I guess they do not have tabs on me.”
Solomon, who said he still plans on taking an official visit to Michigan, seems to address the mailing error in his Monday announcement.
“Recruitment is a funny thing, you can easily get caught up in the moment and feel that everyone knows who you are,” Solomon said in the note on Twitter.
Solomon, who plays for Lee County in Georgia, is listed at 6-foot-3 and 305 pounds. 247Sports rates Solomon as the No. 5 DT in 2017, the No. 8 player in Georgia and the 78th best recruit in the country.
Solomon’s news comes only a few hours after Leonard Taylor, another 4-star recruit, also decommitted from Michigan.
