Quarterback Kevin Doyle, a 3-star recruit from St. John’s College High School (Washington, D.C), has de-committed from Michigan, he announced in a tweet Sunday. Doyle initially committed to Michigan on Sept. 24, 2017.
Thank you Coach Hamilton and Coach Harbaugh for the opportunity. I am officially decommitted from the University of Michigan. I will be signing with a new school on Wednesday, Feb 7th.

Doyle had a solid senior season for the Cadets, finishing with a 61 percent completion percentage and 22 touchdowns through the air. He helped St. John’s to a Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title and was named the Washington Post’s 2017 All-Met Offensive Player of the Year.
Between injuries, transfers and inconsistent play, the quarterback position was hardly a strong suit for Michigan in 2017, and the Wolverines are hoping Ole Miss transfer Shea Patterson is granted eligibility to play in 2018. It’s unclear if the situation surrounding Patterson had an impact on Doyle’s de-commitment.
Doyle had offers from 21 programs in total before committing to Michigan. His lone official visit was to Michigan on Oct. 7, but prior to that he took unofficial visits to LSU, Purdue and Ohio State, among others.
247Sports ranks Doyle the No. 19 pro-style quarterback in the nation and the third-best player in D.C. for the class of 2018. Doyle will have to pick a new program soon, as National Signing Day is Feb. 7.
