Recruiting battles are normal, even for commits.
3-star cornerback Matt Hankins committed to Iowa on June 27, but Hankins announced on his Twitter account on Wednesday that he picked up an offer from Michigan.

Hankins, from Flower Mound, Texas, is a 6-foot, 158-pound cornerback in the 2017 class.
After going more than a month without offering a 2017, this is the second day in a row a 2017 cornerback has tweeted a Michigan offer. Brandon Sebastian is committed to Boston College but he announced his Michigan offer on Tuesday morning.
Does that mean Michigan thinks less of its chances for 5-star Darnay Holmes or 4-star Ambry Thomas? There’s no way of knowing just yet, but more will be known down the road.
