Michigan’s 2019 recruiting class grew smaller by one Thursday night. 

Belleville defensive lineman Tyrece Woods announced his de-commitment from Michigan in a tweet.

“I would like to thank Coach Harbaugh, the rest of the Michigan staff and all of the fans for the hospitality and support over the last 4 months,” Woods wrote. “Right now my family and I feel that it is in my best interest to de-commit from Michigan and re-open my recruitment and weigh all of my options. Please no questions…”

According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Woods, a 3-star, is the No. 1,685 recruit in the nation and the No. 44 prospect in the state of Michigan.

Woods earned a scholarship offer this past summer after participating in Michigan’s summer camp and verbally committed to the Wolverines on Aug. 12. He projected as a three-technique defensive tackle. 

With Woods’ departure, Michigan has 25 commitments in its 2019 class, which is ranked No. 9 in the country and No. 1 in the Big Ten.
